We woke up and headed out to srtroll around Savannah and get some pictures in the morning light. Savannah is such a beautiful city with so much history, I could stay for a month and never become bored. But, this was our last day and in the afternoon we will be heading home to beautiful Mantua, Ohio.

We were unsuccessful and went to the reputed haunted hot spot-The Pirate House for dinner.
