We spent the day in Savannah. Weather was cool but sunny with blue skies. Decided to tour the historic district and waterfront via trolley. The guides were very informative. There were 15 stops throughout the city, and we could get on and off the trolley as many times as we chose and stay at any site as long as we liked. Very nice way to see the sights and would certainly do it again. We didn't know how beautiful and historic that Savannah is. Even saw Paula Deen's. Very overrated. River street is very nice (especially the pralines), but our favorite was The Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. The pictures do not begin to display the beauty of this place. We left Savannah around 4:30 down Highway 17 toward Brunswick. Stopped in Midway to see the 210 year old Midway Congregational Church. Members included Button Gwinnett and Lyman Hall, both signers of the Declaration of Independence. Across the street from the church is the Midway Cemetery. Unless you are into cemeteries, you will not understand. Be glad to tell you more about the cemetery if you're interested but the grave of the minister from Midway Church is there. He died in 1773! Also the huge obelisk-type marker that you see in the picture was erected by the US Congress to honor two Revolutionary Gernerals who were killed in 1774. On to Captain Joe's in Midway where we enjoyed fried shrimp, fried oysters, fried catfish and collards. After that we felt like we needed to join the occupants of the cemetery. Ended up at another Hampton Inn in Darien.
