Welcome to The Second Sojourn Sail Trip
Photo Gallery 24:
May 2003: Isle of Hope, Georgia to Beaufort, South Carolina
8 miles west of Savannah, the Intracoastal Waterway winds along past
homes and docks.
The main street in Isle of Hope, Georgia, where we stayed in a marina
when we went to Savannah
The bus to Savannah stopped in this Isle of Hope neighborhood, a block
from the marina.
Colonial Park Cemetery in Savannah
Savannah's historic district looks a bit like Boston plus Spanish moss
Jasmine makes a beautiful scent that floats along on the May breezes
The Savannah River Cruise boat
The original streets in Savannah were made of the rocks which were
used as ballast on ships coming from Europe
A statue of John Wesley, founder of Methodism, stands in Reynolds Square
in "Old Savannah."
A break from carriage tours on a 95 degree day in Savannah
Old Savannah is laid out on a grid with "town squares" every other
block. Many of the squares have lovely churches, like the Independent Presbyterian
Streets like these line the many squares.
Along another town square in the 2 square mile historic district of
OK. Imagine the truck isn't there. Now imagine the sign and the parking
meter have been removed. Add a park bench and a box of chocolates, and
you have the film location for Tom Hanks to tell Forest Gump's life story,
while waiting for the bus.
The next neighborhood overlooking another square
The doorways and ironwork of the homes in Old Savannah are works
Church along a square
The Magnolia blooms are just beginning to emerge in May. Soon the trees
will be covered with these 9 inch blossoms.
Look what we found!
The first Girl Scout Headquarters in the United States. The first member
of Troop 334 to call me and say you found this, will win a prize!
The First Headquarters is also on the ghost tour in Savannah!
The steeples of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
Jasmine, lovely ironwork, palm trees and live oaks
The second member of Troop 334 to call and tell me you found this,
will also get a prize!
The birthplace of the founder of Girl Scouts of the United States
Back on the ICW and headed north. The Waterway will wind off to the
left and come around in front of the docks. Only about 1000 miles to go!
On the way home from catching shrimp
We use ranges to stay on course in Georgia. When the next range lines
up with this one, we will be on course.
When the 9 foot tide in Georgia goes out, it even leaves some Waterway
markers high and dry. We'll be taking this mark WELL to port!
Entering Georgia low country. The marshes go on and on for as far as
the eye can see, and the subtlety and clarity of colors are not seen anywhere
Historic Beaufort, South Carolina
A Beaufort, South Carolina neighborhood. This Beaufort is pronounced
"Bew-fort", as opposed to "Boooh-fort," which is in North Carolina
A tidal estuary
Beaufort, South Carolina
The stairs to number 406
Live oaks shade old Beaufort, South Carolina homes
Low tide along the Intracoastal Waterway
Jasmine is blooming from St. Augustine, Florida to Beaufort, South
Carolina in May
Live oaks don't shed their leaves all at once, hence the name. Notice
the Spanish moss hanging on the trees.
