Ok, so today’s take off from the Isle of Hope dock was not exactly stellar. In fact, we sucked! The current was so strong. How strong was it?? So swift and strong that we almost didn’t make it off the dock and when we did succeed, it was real up close and personal. When Dan finally was able to get the bow away from the dock, our stern kept to the dock and we kissed the boat tied next to us. Not a real pleasant sound, that scraping of boat to boat. Thankfully, no real harm done though. We only lost a small vent cover and the other boat, apparently, suffered no damage.
Again, we were wowed by the scenery. These, folks, are not McMansions!
We spied this beautiful yacht to drooled over and think it may be a Trumphy.
Fort Jackson in the Savannah River was to our port as we entered the Savannah River and were pursued by this giant ship.
We came around the river’s curve and Savannah’s silhouette was unveiled to us as we headed to the Hyatt Dock, our home for the next two nights. Again, the swift current made it difficult to come alongside the dockage but Dan persisted and we successfully made fast. The water level was way down when we tied up but look how high we were later.
After a lovely lunch at Vic’s, we hopped on a “tourist trolley” for a quick tour and ride to Gloria and Dean Hortsman’s beautiful home in historic Savannah. Gloria and Dean are ex-Arcadia, CA residences and welcomed us into their abode where we enjoyed Fire-fly Sweet Tea Vodka and reminisced about our common “old days” in Arcadia. What delightful hosts they were!! Thank you.
