Savannah, GA and Tybee Island Trip in Pictures

Our Trip to Savannah, GA and Tybee Island in Pictures (Saturday, Sept. 1- Monday, Sept. 3)

Our first glimpse of the hotel. The Westin Savannah Harbor is by far our favorite in the downtown Savannah area!

Taking a ferry from the hotel to River Street

After a full day downtown, we chose to eat at the Shrimp Factory ~ the website has interesting information. C8 traced this whole nautical scene

Later that night, our hotel had The Muppets Movie on the big screen out by the pool.

The pool staff gave each of us s'mores kits! The kids loved roasting their marshmallows and making their very own treats by the outdoor fire.
The next day we all enjoyed a full day at the beach. Daddy and the older two stayed in the ocean for hours. I never did get a good picture of them. We also visited the Marine and Science Center which is on the beach. No trip to Tybee is complete without stopping there!

Guided tour at Ft. Pulaski



The powder magazine storehouse


Lecture about a soldier's life in the mid 1800's

This gentleman (and real life veteran) gave a wonderful presentation of a soldier's life and a demo of a musket firing

Hands on learning - making black powder and lead paper bullets


Being sworn in as official Ft. Pulaski Jr. Rangers.

Receiving their badges for completing the required tasks. We are working towards our Junior Civil War Historian badge and we picked up the Jr. Ranger Discovering the Underground Railroad booklet. Here's the link to the PDF. The Jr. Ranger program is a fabulous free educational resource.
                 A family favorite is the Pirates' House Restaurant. We always get a great history lesson with our meal. J4 especially loves the pirate actors. Last year, they had a red headed Ann Bonny that was also fabulous!  FYI pirate lovers ~they've added a huge gift shop upstairs, too.

We can't leave Savannah without a history tour by horse and carriage. The past three trips we've managed to have the same tour guide! I can't think of her name right now, but once I do I'll be sure to edit this post! ~ R6 didn't want to sit up front. He chose to sit on the second bench between Daddy and I.

Just before passing through a serious thunderstorm on our way back home...
We had a wonderful time in Savannah. Daddy's spur of the moment idea made for lots of fabulous memories and great educational moments.

 I am linking up with Favorite Resource This Week. This showcases some of our favorite things to do while in historic Savannah and Tybee Island.
