and Tybee Island, GA
May, 2006
This visit to Savannah was much more than a 4-day getaway. On Saturday, May 20th we would gather at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist to witness the marriage of Wally's nephew. This church, founded in 1799, is absolutely beautiful and should not be missed if you come to Savannah. The church also boasts a white pipe organ that is magnificent. You can take a self-guided tour Monday through Friday.

We spent three nights in The Garden Hotel, located in the Historic District of Savannah. This is a convenient location, within walking distance of museums, horse carriages, fine and casual dining, and lots of shopping. We enjoyed an exceptional dinner at Belford's in the City Market.

Sister-in-law Paula Snider, along with her two daughters, their husbands and 6 children - all from Texas - looked upon the wedding as an opportunity for a family vacation and reunion. Along with Wally's sister, they rented a beach house 18 miles East of Savannah on Tybee Island. The Tybee Light Station stands as one of North America's most beautifully renovated Lighthouses. In addition to the lighthouse, Tybee Island is home to Screven, a museum, and Fort Pulaski which is just west of the island on Hwy 80.

Part vacation and part wedding, we are always captivated by Savannah's charm and heritage.
