Along the river.

The colonial cemetery. We did a night tour here. It is an interesting place supposedly haunted. Many of the graves exceeded the boundaries of the fence so thousands of people are buried under the sidewalks and the street. Yes, thousands. Did you know Georgia is one of the original 13 colonies …a signer of the Declaration of Independence is buried here.

This steeple was in the movie Forrest Gump, where the feather floated down from.

There are a few of these drain spouts around town. I happened to get this shot from the tour ride. This cute little guy popped into the picture!

St Bonaventure cemetery….the stones on top were intriguing.

It was beautiful there with all the azaleas blooming and the Spanish moss draped from the trees. We walked around and took lots of photos, lost track of time and got locked in after hours. Thankfully some poor man who probably just wanted to go home to dinner was waiting on us and unlocked the gate and let us out. Now we know why there is an emergency cell phone number posted at the gate!

We lit a candle at St John the Baptist church…it is stunning inside. Don’t miss it.

We waited in line to eat at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding house for an hour and a half…the food was good. Best fried chicken ever! Seriously! These kids waited too…they kept themselves amused. We met some nice people in line.

This cargo ship was huge but it moved along pretty fast. It disappeared from the viewfinder faster than I wanted it too.

And last but not least my beautiful traveling bud…my girl.

I told you she was cute. And she’s fun to be with. And she likes ice cream. The real deal.
