Where I stayed
We booked in for a morning kayaking with dolphins on Sunday and then headed into Savannah to look around. It was a Saturday night and the place was pumping. People all over the place, musicians playing saxaphone and clarenet and a great vibe. We had dinner at the Oyster Bar and after a bit more wandering River Street we headed back to the hotel.
The next morning we got up rearing to go and headed to the Bull River Marina. For those reading from SA this would be called the Zambezi River Marina over there as we found out. We headed out into the estuary and paddled around some of the tidal creeks and that was when I saw a fish jump
The following day we went back into Savannah and did a trolley tour which was a great way to see all the sites and squares. Savannah is full of history and also popular for movies. We saw where Forest Gump sat on his bench, Julia Roberts and Dennis Quaid were shot in Something to Talk About, a house where John Travolta was filmed in The General's Daughter. The most famous movie (which I haven't seen) was The Garden of Good and Evil. There are probably plenty more but that's what I remember. You can see why it is so popular though as it is a really stunning town. Another interesting fact is Jingle Bells was written there! We were also told that the moss hanging from the trees was used as a bed and pillow filling as it was soft. However, there are little red bugs that live in the moss...bed bugs! It is hard to describe Savannah so please see the pictures although they won't do justice. As you will see I made it to Wet Willies for a strawberry daquiri (thanks for the heads up Carolyn). After a long day in the sun we were hit with a massive thunderstorm and headed back to the hotel to pack as we were on the move to Moody the following day :-(
