Savannah and the Surrounding Areas

Crabbing Area
From Museums to Mother Nature, there was lots to see and do.

Pin Point Heritage Museum
 A 100 years of history of  Gullah/Geechee, the First generation of freedmen worked and lived in this community along the water. Now transformed into an educational center.

Gullah is the language and Geechee are the people.

Live Oak Avenue a mile and a half long

Wormsloe State Historic Site
A 1700's Colonial plantation for Pomegranites, Rice, Mulberry's for silk  and then Cows.

Original Structure of Tabby
They provided a very informative tour guide.

Learned about the art of Tabby construction, building materials of oyster shells, lime, sand and water. Extremely strong, able to withstand canon balls.

Recreated Wattle and Dab Camps

View over Jones Narrows

Old Rice Field Trunk

Savannah Wildlife Refuge

Drove the 4 mile road through the refuge hoping to catch some wildlife.
