We visited Savannah and Tybee Island Sept 2010 with friends from St Martins - Don & Dianne Murphy (see the first gallery).
Then we went with our good friends and photo journeyers - Eddie and Linda Alcorne. We ventured in Savannah for a 2 day visit. It's great to have experienced tour guides (them) and even though the weather at times was cloudy with unexpected sprinkles, the city and companionship were grand. Our accommodations at the Stay Alfred - Savannah were absolutely superb, and we were a walking distance to Forsyth Park. A two bedroom/two bath suite with a full kitchen and living room, we had a place to relax and plan our two days. Besides touring the cathedrals, walking the parks (disappointed that political correctness fever forced all the confederate statues off the public squares to some secret location) the southern charm was only slightly affected.
We had a seasoned dining scout (Linda) who not only found great places to dine (like the Driftaway Cafe and the Crystal Beer Palace for great seafood), but was our Google Maps interpreter - providing turn by turn directions. Eddie and I did night photography which included waterfront walks, the fountain and no light - low lit park walks (always looking over our shoulder). We visited the oak-lined, moss covered trees in the estate Wormsloe Plantation. (poor Eddie left his phone that we recovered later in the day)
Early the next morning, 5:30 am we headed to Tybee Island to photograph the Tybee Lighthouse. The one lesson from the trip - bring warm clothes and prepare for any weather! See more photos.
