Bonaventure cemetery

One of the most interesting things you can do in Savannah is visit Bonaventure cemetary. It has become a bit of a tourist attraction after the success of the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil but on a day like today it is practically deserted.

Most of the tourists come to visit the graves of Conrad Aiken, the poet and Johnny Mercer, the lyricist who penned Moon River but I enjoy the gothic atmosphere. Maybe one day I'll visit at midnight under a full moon.

Now it's off to Tybee island to have a drink on the beach ...
