Next Stop: Savannah Georgia!

The next stop on our vacation was Savannah Georgia!  This was a town we have visited before, but really wanted to go back and see more!  It did not disappoint! We had read about Bonaventure Cemetery and thought it would be cool to see it!  It was amazing!!  Talk about a beautiful and scenic place.   Who would have thought we would be excited to visit a Cemetery????
It's a green and gorgeous place! 

Very cool headstone "The Lord Knoweth....."

All the stones were so ornate!  

We saw lots of fancy stones

I seemed to be attracted to the "Angels"  

I really wanted to bring home some wrought iron!! 

Super cute bench

This is my favorite stone of the day!! 

All the gorgeous trees!  

Some of the stones dated back to the early 1800s.

I loved this arch! 

Fun to see a very patriotic area of the cemetery! 

Inside the buildings were gorgeous stained glass! 

It was a really lush and gorgeous garden setting.  We had alot of fun walking thru it and seeing all the different stones and foliage!
I'd Highly recommend visiting Bonaventure if you are ever in Savannah!  More report on Savannah next time!!  Thanks for traveling along!

Next Stop..... A Beautiful Plantation

 Our next stop in Charleston was the Boone Hill Plantation!  We loved seeing this beautiful property and learning all about the history of the plantation!
This building is going to have to be refurbished! 

This long driveway was shaded by all these old trees!  Really gorgeous

And they are HUGE! 

The whole place had gorgeous gardens! 

And I enjoyed walking thru them 

So happy my Sweetheart is also a traveler and we get to visit these cool places together! 

The Slave houses had all these cool textures! 

The slave houses have great info inside and presented in a really nice way. 

some broken dishes from the slave houses made into a pretty piece of art
