Today we head home. It was a rainy morning so we took our time packing up and planned to just stay in the hotel and read until we need to leave for the airport. However, while we were packing up all of our treasures and maps and visitor guides we came across a place we hadn’t visited yet. We just can’t sit still!
We took off for one last breakfast at Clary’s. Today I tried the stuffed sourdough French toast. Delicious!
We drove south out of town on Skidaway Road and found our way to the Wormsloe Plantation.
A breathtaking avenue sheltered by live oaks and Spanish moss leads to the tabby ruins of Wormsloe, the colonial estate of Noble Jones. Wormsloe’s tabby ruins are the oldest standing structures in Savannah.
We toured the area and saw the foundations and remaining walls of the original house. We walked the grounds and the old family cemetery. A beautiful setting overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway.
After a dank morning walk we headed back to town for one last ice cream at Leopold’s.
A lovely way to end this trip to beautiful and historic Savannah.
