295. Limitless

295. Limitless
(adj) without end or boundary
Location Placed: Juliette Gordon Low House, Savannah, Georgia
Date Placed: 8/4/11 at 3:13pm

Being a former girl scout many moons ago, thought not particularly dedicated toward the end, I was a bit excited to go to this house. Some of the knowledge of her life came back to me as I enjoyed the lovely tour. I particularly enjoyed the porch facing the garden. I like to think of them as the 'See & Be Seen' porch. It seems like those sorts of porches were the ones that people in the old days were invited if they were someone import to the hosts. Between that and the higher floors, people certainly knew how to party. I can just imagine the people of the past, decked out in their party outfits, milling around on those porches in the cooler nights of spring and fall. (Only because I can't imagine anyone wanting to party outside in the summer heat I experienced.) But the Juliette Gordon Low was a lovely last minute addition to my house tour of the day.
