Savannah, GA…Southern Charm at its Best!!

Finally, we are at an Army facility RV Campground! We are at Ft Stewart, Hunter Army Airfield.
One of 22 Squares or Parks
The campground is actually located on Lott’s Island Recreation Area, Marina and Pier. I am NOT knocking the Navy or Air Force. I am just glad to see Army uniforms again. To be truthful, this facility does have full hookups, but that is all for amenities. The Wi-Fi is slow and the sites do have concrete pads, but the surroundings look like they would be wet if it rained. Speaking of rain, the forecast for tomorrow calls for rain all day. (If it does rain it will be our first rainy day in 48 days on the road).

Arriving here around 11am, we selected a couple spots before going to the MWR Office (Morale Welfare and Recreation) to sign in. We had been advised back at Kings Bay that if it rains it would be wise to be on high ground. Those of you who remember (Hotel California at Fort Drum will know what I mean)
Savannah...Full of Life...Past & Present!

The weather today is fine. With that in mind, we set out for the old downtown just a few miles down the road. The campground location is prime for this exploration. We didn’t fool around and went directly to “Old Town Trolley Tours”. They would show us all the highlights and in case of inclement weather tomorrow we would of at least have seen a glimpse of the best!
A brief description of Savannah… It is a city that was well planned from its beginning. It was Georgia’s First City! It had 24 squares or parks in the old town area. There are 22 remaining squares. Savannah is adorned with extraordinary architecture, lush botanicals gardens. Historic, Colonial and Victorian districts were included in the Trolley tour. I took many pictures, but they don’t do justice to the squares! They are the jewels of the city! Most have abundant Live Oak trees, the flowers are in bloom and many many statues of famous people who have made their mark on the city as well as the country. As I write this blog this evening, I really hope that tomorrow’s weather will still enable us to walk the town and justly explore this Southern Bell of a City!

That is what we did and saw
