On The Road Again - Day 9

We were back on the road again today, as we made our way to Savannah, GA. As we headed out of Charleston, we did a drive by a pretty street called "Rainbow Row."
(I have to add a picture here!) 

Our first stop on our drive was the Angel Oak.  

This oak tree is said to be the oldest living thing east of the Mississippi.  There's evidence that it is 600-700 years old, with the possibility that it could be even 1000 years old! 

We continued on our drive, through swamp land...

...and took a scenic drive through a wildlife refuge.  We bumped into a few alligators!! 

Continuing on, we made our way into Savannah!

After settling into our hotel, we went for a walk along river street which had cute shops! Our favourite was this candy shop. 

We had a little snack at Leopold's ice cream, which was delishious! It's a family owned old fashioned soda fountain, with homemade ice cream.  One of the brothers who owns the store happens to be a Hollywood big wig and the store acts as a mini museum.  

Tomorrow we will tour and explore Savannah!
