I've been to Savannah several times as my son Hans was stationed there for several years and was married there. It was John's first visit. And, a beautiful time for it!! The flowers were all abloom and there was little humidity!! We stayed at Hunter Army Airbase. It was nestled in the trees - which was pretty (see photo) BUT buggy!

We took a trolley tour which allows you to get on and off the various points of interest. We visited the home of Julia Low Howe, founder of the Girl Scouts, the Davenport Home, St. John the Baptist Cathedral. St. John's is a gorgeous church. It is where Hans and Andrea were married and I had forgotten how beautiful it is. Our last day we drove out to Tybee Island which is a lovely beachside resort town and then had dinner at a local seafood place, The Crab Shack. The speciality there is a "Low Country Boil". John feasted on that, but I went for the shrimp and crab plate. It is a very rustic and unassuming place on the water - "Where the elite eat in their bare feet". Lots of alligator themed items. Started outside overlooking the water. Then, the bugs started their feasting - on us!!

All in all, a very enjoyable visit! Now on to Charleston!! It will be a first visit for us both.
