Morning in Savannah

Places Unknown

Back in November we did a quick trip down the coast and stopped in Savannah. In the early morning I went down to the Savannah river in hopes to get some shots of the sunrise with all the shops and ships on the river. To my annoyance the sun was rising in very different spot so I had to take a few photos without any sun and then raced my bike up to the city squares in hopes of getting good light up there.

The on-board entertainment will include actors, impersonators, leading lecturers (e.g.  Ric Burns & James I. “Bud” Robertson Jr.) balladeers (e.g. Bobby Horton) and reenactments to enhance understanding of this historical time in the U.S.

The three voyages are set to travel between New Orleans, La., Vicksburg, Miss., Chattanooga, Tenn., and Louisville, Ky.
