We walked along River Street, saw a huge, and I do mean huge, container ship, a pirate ship (El Galeon de Andalucia) that's here for 10 days as part of it's sail down the east coast from Maryland to Florida , the World War II Memorial and actually found the spot where General Oglethorpe first came ashore when he came to found the colony of Georgia in 1733.
Great weather for November, in the mid 70's and lovely blue skies. Behind the container ship you can catch a glimpse of Hutchinson Island that sets in the middle of the Savannah River. It has the Savannah Island Trade and Convention Center and the Westin Savannah Harbor Resort. In the new year Georgia's legislature is going to consider allowing gambling there, that would be interesting and good for tourism, but this is such a conservative state I doubt if it will happen.
