Sojourn to Savannah ~ September 2015 ~ Day 4

Saturday was a jam-packed day!  Started off at the Birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low.  There was a little bit of discussion about bringing the girls to Savannah and what to do with them when you are here.

We took a tour of the birthplace. They have recently made some changes and have taken down all of the ropes.  There is nothing roped off now, so you can go in the rooms and actually see things up close.  The tour guide said most of the items in the house are original to the house.  They are trying to make it a authentic as possible.  Tons of neat antiques!!

Our next adventure for the day was a Riverboat Tour.  We took Pedicabs to the river walk to catch the boat.  It was pretty warm out - and the breeze from the pedicabs was nicer than a walk!

Our Riverboat cruise was on the Savannah River Queen.  It was an ok ride. Went up the Savannah River about 15 minutes, then back down it about 30, then returned to the dock.  It was warm, so I stayed in the air conditioned area for most of it!

After we got off the boat, one of the Trolley tour companies picked us up and we got a quick tour of the city from the trolley.  This was a neat little tour, and our guide was funny and full of knowledge!

Back at the Birthplace, we participated in a pinning ceremony. We held a Scouts Own and all received a pin that is a Daisy that says Birthplace.

Dinner was at the Pirate House. One of Savannah's oldest buildings- supposedly haunted!  We had an awesome waitstaff and the food was not only huge portion - but very yummy!! 


Several of the ladies went to the Variety Show after we ate - I was tired and knew I had a long day tomorrow - so I opted to head back to the hotel!
