Accidental Tourists, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Walk in the park

This past summer Tall & Handsome and I had an occasion to make a trip to Savannah, GA.

Savannah is a lovely city and there are reminders of the truly old, deep South every where. It is a city of living history.

It is also a city of parks…old parks, many built on squares. This lovely park is on the square just across from Paula Deen’s restaurant Lady & Sons on Congress Street.

As I stood in this location I noticed these old Southern oak trees highlighted by the black street lamps formed a nice shady tunnel through the park and made a lovely stroll from one end to the next. It was a captivating scene that could almost take you back 200 years.

I stood there for some time waiting for the right moment for the right shot…waiting for cars, cabs and etc. to pass by so I could snap that shutter.

Just as I snapped my picture these two little Southern ladies stroll into the park, making them my accidental tourists for the day…

Bless their hearts…
