A Day for Savannah

Sun City Hilton Head is just north of Savannah, so when we planned our visit we figured we would take a day to tour Savannah.  Catherine and Brent said that Sunday would be a good day for them – we’d drive to the north side of the river where there was good parking, and take the water taxi across to where we could get on a tour trolley.

When we got up and took a look at the weather, a tropical storm was headed our way and it was raining – not a good day.  But they said we could still just go for a ride to Savannah and drive around a bit – then take in the Air Museum.  As it turned out the day was just fine, but we liked having Brent and Catherine as our tour guides anyway.

Here are some pictures from the day.

I didn't know that lawyers could be so artistic, but I guess you could be blessed with many gifts. You have an eye for art. Such lovely photos! Sandi at Sun City

We loved having you and are so impressed with the pictures. Your pushing up daisies picture is so cool. It could be in a contest! Take care and come back.
