In a hot sunny afternoon, we drove from Atlanta to Savannah. It took us about four and a half hour to get there. We passed through
the historic part of the town, and moved on to look for the east coast beach. With all the luck we had, we managed to get to a Walmart
to look at a local map. Tybee Island is east of Savannah on the coast, where 2 miles long of sandy beach is located.
We parked our car on a side street and strolled on to the beach. "Very Clean" was my first impression. After 45 minutes of walking on the beach,
we headed back to our car, and unfortunately we found a parking ticket on our windshield. We were 10 minute overtime. I wondered what a government
employee was doing on a 100°F Saturday afternoon, didn't he/she have something better to do ?
We left Tybee Island beach and went to Fort Pulaski National Monument. It was a very old fort built in 1849 costing 1 million dollars at the time.
It was built on a wet terrain, where they pounded 2000 wood piles into the the muddy swamp as foundation. It was a very intersting historic
site to visit.
Afterwards, we drove back to Savannah to enjoy our seafood dinner at the Historic Savannah district by the river. It very much looked like a
combination of Denman/Robson area with old Yaletown feel.
What does this sign actually means ?
Board walk from the side street onto the beach.
My signature shadow.
Very Clean, isn't it?.
2 miles long of sandy beach.
Water is very clear and clean.
Fort Pulaski National Monument
The fort was surrounded by a moat.
Main gate to enter Fort Pulaski.
This fort consumed millions of millions of bricks.
Aim, .... Fire ....
It made a very beautiful scene when this fort was not at war.
Standing on top of the wall overlooking the entire fort.
The wall was standing 20 feet tall.
It is still in very good condition considering it is 150 years old and went through 2 wars.
I'm serious, they got alligator in this moat.
They have sea turtles here .....
Stone paved streets in Historic Savannah.
All these old warehouses by the river were converted to restaurants.
Gigantic freight ship travelling down the river.
Crab cake with red rice.
50¢ each, ...can't resist !.
Just like Yaletown in Vancouver, old warehouses by the river were converted to restaurants.
The boardwalk on the waterfront
Looked like the big ship was going to ramp into the Westin.
