We happened to pick a day between two beautiful warm typical days. It was one of those cases of "You should have been here yesterday." The temperature ranged from 42 degrees F to 48 degrees F. Being from Ohio where there was ice and snow when we left, we had proper clothing.
There are several tour options available but Tom decided to drive. Handicapped accessible transportation has given him trouble in the past.
Our destination was River Street. John, our grandson, recommended a restaurant there, The Shrimp Factory. The traffic pattern was different from any Tom had ever driven in. There were small parks called squares in the "middle" of the streets.
The directions to circle them were clearly marked.
John said we shouldn't miss the fountain in Forsyth Park. We circled the park twice so I could take photos. But Tom was on a mission, River Street and The Shrimp Factory, and there were no parking lots. Must be because the town was built by 1734.
Lots of impressive buildings...
Beautiful entrance to the Colonial Park Cemetery established around 1750
River Street... much of it covered in cobblestones.
We parked facing the Savannah River. You can see the driver's side mirror in the lower right corner. Watching the river traffic was a novel experience for us since we are from the farmlands of Ohio.
Below, a container ship coming toward us...
and as it moves up the river.
The stairs from the top of the bluff down to River Street. Each step is nearly as tall as the woman's boots.
The Shrimp Factory almost directly across from our parking place...
We left via the cobblestone exit to see more of Savannah in the afternoon.
