Our next major stop due south is Savannah Georgia. This is one place Andrew and I have never been to, even though we lived only a few hours away for many years. Recently, we saw that WBCCI SouthEast Camping Unit planned to host a rally in area. What better way to see a new city than with other Airstream enthusiasts? So, we signed up.
Arrival day we spent at our campground Red Gate Farms meeting and greeting forty new friends. On the second day, Andrew and I headed into historic Savannah. We parked at the Visitor Center parking lot, which is quite large (large enough for several RVs to park with cars) and affordable. From there, we walked around the historic district looking at charming old architecture and monumental places, such as Flannery O’Connor and Juliette Gordon Low’s childhood homes. Of course Savannah is the perfect place to pursued one of my favorite tourist activities, visiting cemeteries. We strolled through the city’s oldest, Colonial Park, and city’s most gothic, Bonaventure.
Our final day in Savannah we joined several people on SE Camping Unit for an adventure in oystering. One Airstream couple was truly kind to invite us to their property to collect oysters and hosted a lunch. After a few hours and several full buckets, we headed back to camp for a group oyster roast.
While our trip to the area was short and sweet, it left us with an growing list of places and activities we’d like to come back to see and do. Also, we look forward to more SECU rally’s in the future. This event was a great group of people and a lot of fun.
