Savannah River… the vacation is over

well its been great going through my vacation to Savannah Georgia, i’d go back in a heartbeat.

so when ever we go on vacation we always try to take  trolley’s and boat rides, to learn about the history and other facts you just wont find in a book.and in the last part of our trip we took the boat ride at sunset. we normally dont see sunsets because of the hours my Husband works.. many sunrises though:)

while we waited for our boat, we got to see another freighter come through, this one was from China..going back to China.
im just in awe of these vessels
the size is enormous

ok, on with the show

now you can truly see the enormousness… our sightseeing paddle boat is just like the one u see next to the freighter.   and you know the size of those sightseeing boats.
and we r off to explore the river , and yes to get a few captures of the perfect sunset:)
to the left of river street ,where all the action is…


The Savannah River has the fourth-highest toxic discharge in the country, according to a 2009 report by Environment America



we were so lucky to catch a  school of Dolphins  you can only see the one, but there were at least 3 in this shot
if you look closely you can see some Dolphin fins

The river supports a large variety of native and introduced aquatic species:


a few deer eating dinner


cant forget about these little guys, these tug boats work hard:)
a Fort we never got to visit


the colors in the sky were simply amazing at every angle , you saw something different
my most prized possession from my trip ,and yes, i did get it made and framed
well we r on our way back to town. what an awesome nite it has been
next time i want to stay here,at the Weston Hotel and Spa
i forgot this little guy,  theres a whole fleet sitting over at the Weston (where i want to stay next time) and they just cart people back and forth all day long
i was in awe of that sky,remember im not out at nite usually 🙂


well that will do it for this cruise.

i had such an awesome time in Savannah, id go back again tomorrow if i could. i cant explain the feeling i get when im there.

if you stopped by thank you . this is the last segment of my vacation in Savannah Georgia  2016.

The Historic Homes of Savannah Georgia

The Charm of the South has always won me over. i think in another life i must have lived there.

i thought id share some historic houses today, i wont go into the history, as i did in my other Savannah blogs. mostly because im too lazy. and it is the charm of these places that really captivates me and without SCAD….Savannah College of Architecture and Design..this would certainly not be possible!

ya all know that old saying ..”keeping up with the Jones”  well this street is named Jones. and supposedly that’s where the saying came from. i could never find a day where there wasn’t a lot of cars or people . but this is a residential neighborhood, and its still amazing . the street is all brick.
does any one know the meaning behind the “red door”.. well back in the day.. if your door was painted red, it meant you owned your house,no more mortgage..
this duplex once had a sister living on each side.
i just love this building.
of course i dont remember all the history that goes with this building… and as u might have noticed.. its under construction.Any way… its suppose to be haunted. it looks haunted doesnt it?



we never did get in here. but as you can read was on HGTV.

and if you look carefully at the brick (same in the other photos)  see the smudge marks? well these bricks  were hand made by slaves, and those are finger prints.


SCAD saves what ever they can, in this case outside seating was made at a local restaurant, the pillars may be new, but notice how they saved the other building,
i went to a garden party….. i know you all know the words:)

No i didnt go to a GP. but isnt it pretty?!

there are many Historic churches ,in Historic Savannah..yes this is one.
and this is another 🙂
and then it was time for some libation

not really too keen on English food.. but the liqueur is the same 🙂   and yes it was time for refreshments.. after all my poor hubby was kind enough not to complain all day .

if you stopped by, i hope you enjoyed the tour. i love Savannah. that was my 4th visit, and even though i know i saw the same things, it never bores me.  and theres always good fresh seafood:)

so.. have an awesome rest of the week, and thanks again for stopping by.
