Savannah GA

Another bright sunny day.

Historic Savannah is one of our favorite cities to visit. This might be our 4th or 5th time here, I lost count. So, we kinda know our way around now. We began our day at the Savannah Visitor Center and rather than wait for the free DOT bus or take one of the Hop-On-Hop-Off narrated tours again we chose to walk around. It was early on a Monday morning so traffic was light and people were few. One of our first sights was Paula Deen’s restaurant, The Lady & Sons.

The City Market area was next on our walk. Pretty quiet here too. A horse-drawn carriage waits for passengers.

A few more blocks and we were at the river where we saw a big container ship pass under the big bridge and head out toward the ocean. This one is 1095 feet long and sails under the flag of the United Kingdom.  You can find out information and track the location of ships by looking up the ship name at http://www.vesselfinder.com

The El Galeon, a reconstruction of a 16th century Spanish galleon, is docked at River Street. It will be here until November 27. Self-guided tours are available.

We can’t visit Savannah without a walk down the historic River Street. Love the shops and restaurants here. We had a late lunch here and did a little shopping

Of course the riverboat cruises are fun. We have done that before. We always love to see them.

After walking around River Street for a while we walked back to our car at the Visitor Center and went home.

    I am totally amazed seeing the container ship. Thanks for the photo! Had no idea they were open like that, and piled so high with those huge containers! First thought was, ‘what if they had a shipwreck?” Think of what would be lost.
