Day 15 – Horse and buggy
Learn the ASL signs for ‘horse’ ‘black’ and ‘nice’
The kids are enjoying their time in Savannah. The riverfront walk is beautiful! Fireese and Hartford love seeing the boats go up and down the river. It is surprising to see the huge freighters on the river as it is very narrow and the ships are so huge. It’s almost intimidating to see them as they pass by. We were able to see tugboats working as they escorted the giant ships out to open water. It was neat for the kids to see the tugboat in action. There are also two great candy stores along the riverfront where they make their own candy. I’m sure we could have spent hours in each one picking out all the tasty treats.
The highlight of our day was going on a horse and buggy tour. We were going to take a trolley tour like we did in Saint Augustine but we decided to take a more intimate tour. I have to say that if you are ever in Savannah that it is worth the time and money to take a horse carriage tour. The kids loved the horse ‘ride’ and we really enjoyed learning about all the history of the city. There were great stories from the locals that have been passed down from generation to generation.
I am looking forward to the kids being older so we can return and go on a ghost tour. We went on one before we had kids and it was really fun hearing all the scary stories about the city’s hauntings. I think the kids would really enjoy this when they are a bit older.
