The Entry Drives of Savannah

S “Where in the world have you been?” I get that a lot lately. Well here is some of what I saw on my vacation. These charming entry drives are located in the coastal areas of Savannah and rarely seen by tourists. I started to call them driveways, but that just seemed wrong. These entries have so much more to offer then a drive to the front door. They are welcoming, mysterious and totally captivating. Look closely and maybe you will find an inspiration or two—I certainly did!

      Cindy, I was taking pictures and realized they were all of entry drives—always blogging. Savannah is wonderful in the Winter—no bugs or humidity.
