SAVANNAH PHOTO COLLAGE -

WE WERE TOTALLY ENCHANTED WITH SAVANNAH!! IT WAS OUR SECOND FAVOURITE
PLACE OF THE WHOLE TRIP. JASPER CANADA BEING THE FIRST.

OF COURSE WE HAVE ANOTHER SECOND BEST.... CANNOT DECIDE.
MORE ABOUT THAT IN A LATER BLOG ;)

THE THING ABOUT SAVANNAH WAS THE WARM WELCOME BY EVERYONE!
THEY CALL IT GREAT SOUTHERN CHARM DON'T THEY?
THE MAGNIFICANT BUILDINGS! THE HAUNTING HANGING MOSS!
THE WONDERFUL HARBOURSIDE WALK.
AND THEN.... THERE'S THE OLDE HARBOUR INN.... :)

SAVANNAH REMINDED ME OF NEW ORLEANS BUT WITH MORE CHARM.
STATELY BUILDINGS EVERYWHERE AMONGST SMALL OLD 18TH CENTURY
PIONEER COTTAGES AND OLD 2 STORY HOUSES WITH DECORATIVE WROUGHT
IRON GAVE SAVANNAH A SORT OF UNIQUE FUNKY PIZZAZ.

SADLY WE ONLY HAD 2 DAYS HERE AND IT RAINED..... :(
SO THE TROLLEY HOP ON HOP OFF TOUR WITH PERFECT!

ADD TO THIS MIX THE MYSTERIOUS HANGING MOSS THAT IS SUCH A TYPICAL
SIGHT IN SAVANNAH..... AND IT IS OBVIOUS WHY I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS
GORGEOUS CHARMING PLACE :)

OLDE HARBOUR INN - BEST ACCOMMODATION IN SAVANNAH!!! -

"HAPPY FALL Y'ALL!"
FANTASTIC GREETING HERE ALONG WITH THE HALLOWEEN PUMPKINS WE
WERE SEEING EVERYWHERE :)

I WOULD MOST CERTAINLY STAY HERE AGAIN! THE OLDE HARBOUR INN
IS LOCATED RIGHT ON THE RIVER WALK AND NEAR A TROLLEY STOP.
STAFF WERE MOST FRIENDLY AND BREAKKY WAS INCLUDED WHICH IS
NOT SOMETHING YOU SEE MUCH IN CANADA AND THE USA ON
BOOKING.COM.
THEY ALSO HAD FREE PARKING OUT THE BACK. ANOTHER BONUS.

BUT!..... THE BEST THING WAS THAT AFTERNOON WINE AND APPERTIZERS
WERE INCLUDED FOR ALL GUESTS! (WINE FROM AUSTRALIA)
AND IN THE EVENING, THEY BROUGHT UP ICE-CREAMS FOR EVERYONE.
IF YOU HAPPENED TO BE OUT, THEY WOULD PUT THEM IN YOUR FREEZER.
WHAT NICE ADDED TOUCHES!! IT'S THIS SERVICE THAT KEEPS CUSTOMER
LOYALTY AND SPREADS BY WORD OF MOUTH ..... AND WRITTEN BLOGS :)

HUBBY DROVE THE CAR UP TO THE STREET ABOVE AND WE COULD
JUST WALK ALONG THE OVERHEAD WALKWAY FROM OUR HOTEL ROOM
TO THE CAR WHICH MADE IT EASIER THAN CARTING OUR BAGS DOWN
THE STAIRS.

HOPPING OFF THE BUS IN TOWN, WE FOUND THE MARKETS MOST
ENJOYABLE. THE STREETS OF SAVANNAH ARE ALIVE WITH QUAINT
GIFT SHOPS AND FRIENDLY SMILES FROM THE LOCALS.

STAYING RIGHT ON THE RIVER WALK WAS ALSO A GREAT IDEA.
WE HAD LOTS OF GIFT SHOPS, CAFES, RESTAURANTS AND PUBS TO
CHOOSE FROM.

HERE IS WHERE I TOOK MY NIGHT PHOTOS. IT WAS A BIT SCARY
BECAUSE I WAS THE ONLY ONE IN THE STREET AT THE TIME.

TUBBYS SEAFOOD RESTAURANT.

UNFORTUNATELY WE DON'T HAVE A GOOD TIP FOR A RESTAURANT
IN SAVANNAH. THE BEST TIP I CAN GIVE YOU IS TUBBY'S SEAFOOD
ON THE RIVERFRONT WALK. AND THAT IS ONLY BECAUSE OF THE
VIEW.

THE SEAFOOD WAS BATTERED AND FRIED LIKE WE HAD TASTED
IN NEW ORLEANS. COMING FROM AUSTRALIA WE LIKE TO HAVE
OUR SEAFOOD FRESH AND NATURAL.....

BEERS WERE GOOD THOUGH AND THE VIEW WAS NICE.

WE HAD LEFT ASHEVILLE IN NORTH CAROLINA WITH AMAZING
FORREST LINED ROADS AND STUNNING FALL COLOURS.
COMING INTO AND HEADING OUT OF SAVANNAH THE LANDSCAPE
CHANGED TO LOW LYING SCRUB AND THE ROADS BECAME FREEWAYS.

IT WAS UNUSUAL FOR US TO SEE BIG USA CAMPERVANS (RV'S).
WE DO HAVE SMALLER ONES HERE IN AUSTRALIA BUT PEOPLE TEND
TO JUST HIRE CARS AND BUY CHEAP TENTS. AND WE HAVE THE WICKED
CAMPERS WHICH ARE CHEAP (VW KOMBIES).
