A huge moss-draped Live Oak tree - St. Simons Island, Georgia
View from our room at the River Street Inn which fronts the Savannah River in the
historic section of Savannah. The hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places
and was built as a cotton warehouse back in the early 1800's.
Another view from the room facing the Savannah River and the riverboats.
These are the ruins of Fort Frederica which was built back in the early 1700's to protect the coast of Georiga from invasions by the Spanish in northern Florida.
Now this picture below is also in a historic section of Savannah. It is the famous LADY & SONS RESTAURANT and is owned and operated by Paula Deen and her two sons. The food is wonderful and no trip to Savannah is complete without a trip to the Lady & Sons.
Me and Paula Deen!
My sweet husband indulged my love for history and we took the "long way home" and re-routed back by St. Simons Island. One of my favorite authors of all times, Eugenia Price, is buried at Christ Church cemetery. Eugenia wrote many books about Georgia's early history. They are novels, but she always used "historical characters." I own every book she ever wrote - she was a wonderful Christian woman. Prior to her extensive novels, she wrote many Christian devotionals that have become classics. I also own all of those and am so proud of my collection!
This is Gary and the famous "Wesley Oak" where John Wesley preached when he came to preach in the newly founded Georgia Colony.
