Sightseeing in Savannah

Though the forecast predicted rain, the day could not have been more beautiful.  It was a perfect day to walk around the city and enjoy the weather.

No trip to Savannah is complete without purchasing some salt water taffy (or as Gig-up calls it, taffy-laffy) and sample the pecan pralines.

We have been to the city before, but seeing the cobblestone streets, strolling alongside the river, crossing historic bridges, traversing iconic steps, seeing picturesque statues, and walking on Broughton Street, where Blacks could shop but could not eat (as recently as 1961, http://savannahnow.com/stories/031205/2878389.shtml#.VsSFI9DUXz1) brought a new perspective to the history of the city.

We also got to spend some time seeing Uncle T (William’s brother) at The Distillery where he is the manager there.  We hadn’t seen him in a while so it was a great time of catching up and laughing.  He encouraged us to try the Deep Fried Moon Pie and it did not disappoint!

We had to stop and get a picture as we entered Tybee Island since it was dark when arrived on Sunday.

After returning back to the campground, the kids got to play outside with their frisbee and blow some bubbles before relaxing the rest of the day.

Today, we plan to visit Fort Pulaski, which we haven’t been to since 2009! This is a throwback pic of William, Madison, and Mackenzie from then 🙂
