I mentioned that we were going to try to get over to Savannah to see the tall ships. I wasn’t sure if we’d go … for the last 2-3 trips to Hilton Head, we’ve planned a day trip to Charleston, but once we get on the island, we just can’t seem to pull ourselves away from the beach. But after breakfast yesterday, we decided that we’d go to Savannah – after all, the tall ships are only there for a few days.
Getting to Savannah from Hilton Head means crossing the Talmadge Memorial Bridge. This picture, taken from a good ways from the bridge, doesn’t do justice to how huge this bridge is.
I am afraid of heights, so crossing this bridge is no small feat. But it was worth it to get over to Savannah and see the tall ships.
We were able to board the Dewaruci, a ship from Indonesia.
I don’t know much about these beautiful ships, but I was very surprised by the beautiful carvings on board.
After we finished up at the riverfront, we visited a little bit of Savannah.
There’s rain in the forecast. The Lowcountry desperately needs the rain, so I can’t complain too much. Thankfully the rain isn’t supposed to move in until later this afternoon, so we should be able to get plenty of beach time today. I am hoping, however, for a break in the rain later this evening … I’d love to get a picture of the super moon rising out on the ocean.
