Wandering around quite early one morning on the Florida/Georgia border I was watching this small boat racing down the river.  Just watching and waiting until finally he passed through a small patch of peekaboo sunlight.  Luckily I was ready.

What a remarkable place.  Where the outside is somewhat ordinary, the inside makes up for it in spades.  Artistic, detailed, glorious.  We just happened to be turned on to the place by a local as a not-to-be-missed visual spectacle.  Especially in a place as unlikely as Savannah, Georgia.  So, off we went to see what we could see.  As fate would allow, we arrived just a few minutes before the church was to be used as an event locale, but we were told to come on in for a few minutes before they got started.  Fine with me.  I set up the tripod and had fun composing.

Nothing like the south for an old west coast boy.  I love old and the south is so much older.  Walking along River St. with its old buildings and their new shops is an evenings entertainment.  But, in order to get some perspective I crossed the bridge and went over to Hutchinson Island where I could see the frontage landscape.  It’s a charming part of town.

When I arrived at the Okefenokee swamp it had grown overcast and was approaching dark.  There was hardly anyone around and it was quite muggy.  Just a couple hours to explore its mystery.  And mysterious it was.  Maybe it was the ominous weather, but it truly was a bit spooky.  Perfect.  I managed to get around and walk through the brush and along the trails when I ran into this old homestead.  Nobody around.  It could have been 100 years ago.  Maybe they were off looking for alligator meat.

Gracie.  From the Bonaventure cemetery in Savannah, Georgia.  The cemetery itself became more well known when it was featured in the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.  Being quite close to Savannah, it’s easy to get to and I really enjoyed my time wandering around and looking at the elaborate grave sites.  I don’t know what it is about cemeteries, but I seem to be quite attracted to them.  I often go visit one and walk around to pay my respects in various cities I’m in.  I just find it fascinating to think about the lives that have come and gone.  We have such a relatively short time here.  No one gets out alive.

Wherever I am I’m always drawn to water, if there’s any in the vicinity.  Why is that?  There are plenty of awesome places without water, but I always check out the waterways first.  Strolling along the Savannah River in the pre-sunrise light helped me attune to this beautiful city.

My mom was born here in Savannah.  Beautiful city now.  I wonder what it was like back when her parents up and left, ending up in the complete opposite end of the country, NW Washington state.  My two sisters and I visited here and met many of our long lost cousins who were unknown to us before then.  All were welcoming, friendly, showing off that infamous southern charm.  We stayed in the old historic district down on Bay Street; everything within walking distance, easy to explore the beauty of the city.  I look forward to going back for more of that low country boil.savannah-river-cityscape-2-1
