Our cruise north to Savannah was a great one, however we were quite concerned with two areas of über shallow waters. It was a bit nippy outside & blowing at 45 knots, but Brad & Buddy expertly navigated our way.
Here's one dangerous shallow area appropriately named Hells Gate.
The ladies of Savannahs finest were out & about. I'm betting this is their version of the red hat society.
The Spanish moss hanging from most trees here in Savannah is completely ethereal. Such a mystic spell it casts over the city. It turns out that this isn't actually Spanish, nor is it moss. It's an air plant that's a cousin of the pineapple. Who knew?!
We took a long walk and made it down to the river front where their container ships pass through. We saw so many it was like Panama all over again.
I came upon the "fuzz" in town... No perps in sight, so I couldn't ascertain what they were up to. He cracked up that I took his picture. How can I be expected to stake out the city without photographic evidence?
Sights along the river...
And this was an interesting find I spotted... If you want to make a change to your establishment you have to file a "certificate of appropriateness". Love it! I wonder what you get for being inappropriate? A trip to the po-po!
Many steps in the city are original and as steep and vertical as can be.
This guy playing guitar was one cool cat getting his jam on.
So much architecture in this city, however Savannah wasn't the great city of the south we thought it would be. It was a one-day-visit kind of city, but we did scope it out end to end in two and a half days. It has an eerie feeling to the city and the people are a bit "different". I can see how it was the perfect setting for the novel Midnight in the Garden of Good & Eveil. The book was much better than the movie however.
Brad pondered the historical significance of the city...
I couldn't stop trying to photograph it...
Savannah is built in quadrants and there are 16 of them. Town squares were everywhere. Nancy & I spiced one up.
The next day we took an Old Savannah Trolley around town to scope it out in its entirety. Our driver Tammy was epic and right out of Saturday Night Live. She could have been Honey Boo Boos sister and loved to say... Hey Gurl! She looked just liked her, talked with a drawl and twisted her hair as she spoke. We were dying laughing and didn't want to get off the trolley.
I told her we had to take a selfie and she was a gamer!
And then the boys had us pucker up for our portrait sitting in the park. Ha!
We came upon a gorgeous church that we had to check out.
Each stained glass window was made by hand and cost $650.00 back in the day.
