Savannah, Georgia

11/3 - 11/6/12

Tybee Island, GA

We are only 15 minutes from Savannah.  Savannah is a beautiful Southern City with many parks along their streets.  The oak trees, Spanish Moss and the southern style homes are just breathtaking.  This is where most of Forrest Gump was filmed.  In fact there are a lot of movies filmed here along with the setting of many books.

We went on a Ghost and Graveyard tour.  It was interesting to listen to all the stories.  I probably would not go again.

Beautiful gardens, parks, trees and houses everywhere.

Sorry, I couldn't get the picture turned around

Stations of the Cross are carved, the most beautiful I have ever seen.

The oldest police building in continuous use in the U.S.

Leopold's Ice Cream Parlor since 1929.  The ice cream was really good and creamy.

Joe is having a hard time deciding.

Not too many pictures of Savannah, mostly because I ran out of battery power.  There is a spectacular walkway along the river and we walked and rode the trolley all over the city.  This is such a pretty city I would like to come back in the springtime.

Have a blessed day and drive safely

Forest Gump was filmed in Beaufort, SC and Savannah, GA.  If you remember he had a box of chocolates  from "The Chocolate Tree".  We visited the Chocolate Tree in Beaufort, and yes they are very very scrumptious chocolates.  "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get."

Yep, another carriage ride through the beautiful streets of Historic Beaufort, South Carolina.
