OUR TRIP TO HILTON HEAD AND SAVANNA

 

DSCF0017

I have always wanted to go and see Savanna, it is the most beautiful city to me. Now some others may not think so, but the history and the lovely old homes are very spectacular. We took a nice boat to Savanna it took about and Hr. It was a wonderful trip. Lovely views, I thought this little tug boat was so cute I just had to take a photo of it. This is coming into Savanna down by the water front, lots of shops and restaurants. The food is so great, and boy they can make a glass of iced tea.

This is the boat we took to Savanna, it was so hot that day. The boat did not have air so we set out side very windy..

Now on the left is my Handsome hubby, and my sweet sister and her hubby, waiting for our boat. Down by the dock there were so many great sail boats so pretty.

Now as you can see these are cops on horses, they are getting so shade and water. They have these stations around for the horses. How sweet and caring is that....  I don't know who the lady is in this photo she was just there. lol

And these two pretty people are my sweet sister and Hubby, they needed some shade and water too.

And now this beautiful couple is  Hubby and Me, we needed some shade also. Now are we not the best looking couple or what....... lol

Now I am sorry that I don't remember what or who this monument. It was in one of the beautiful court yards. That is the best thing about Savanna, all the small court squares that surround the city. Each one has its own little park with such handsome homes, very large Victorian. DSCF0030  

Now I do remember this home, it is where that one actor stayed while the made the movie In the Garden of Good and Evil. How cool is that, he rented the whole house.

In each court yard they had a large bell, they used to ring it when there was a fire, and then they new where to go for the fire. They do not use it any more.

I just love this huge old oak tree, on the tour bus they took us by the oldest oak tree he did not stop so I could get a photo of it. It was a amazing looking tree it was bigger then this one, they had a fence around it to protect it. I am not sure but I think he said it was about 4oo yrs old. I could be wrong I guess I am not much of a tour guide, but it was about three years ago that we went down.

Sorry..... So I will just show some photos for you all.

Don't you just love the way the moss hangs from the trees, and this lovely old brick home, I wish I could have gotten a better shot but on the bus it was hard to do.

Same boat going the same way. Oh by the way I had red hair back then, Now I am back to my natural color, brown with some blonde and lots of gray boooooooo hooooooo

Hilton Head 002

This is the condo we stay at, it was very nice great pool and not too far from the beach.

Hilton Head 010

I would have loved to see the inside of that boat. Is she not so pretty.

Well I guess I got carried away with the photos I will show more in another post.  I love the history of this city so much sorrow in the south and then so much pride in them selves and their people. Every one was so sweet and friendly. 

I would love to go back again but not take a tour bus, I would walk, I would be able to take my time and look at the homes better. Some of them you could go in and look but you had to pay.

Well I hope you enjoyed my short but not very useful tour, I am so sorry I could not be more forth coming with information about my photos. Getting old my mind is going blank some times. lol;

I hope each and every one of my dear blog friends have a great and sunny restful weekend. God Bless;

Hugs;

Lovely photots! My daughter loves Savannah. I have not been yet, but hope to one day soon. But I will not go during the heat of summer. I'm sure it is wonderful during the fall months as well, and still plenty warm enough!

I went to Savannah once and took pictures of the painted ladies. Unfortunately, none--not a one--turned out! Ah well.

So, I appreciate you taking me back to visit again. It is a place worth visiting.
