Savannah River… the vacation is over

well its been great going through my vacation to Savannah Georgia, i’d go back in a heartbeat.

so when ever we go on vacation we always try to take  trolley’s and boat rides, to learn about the history and other facts you just wont find in a book.and in the last part of our trip we took the boat ride at sunset. we normally dont see sunsets because of the hours my Husband works.. many sunrises though:)

while we waited for our boat, we got to see another freighter come through, this one was from China..going back to China.

Pollution

The Savannah River has the fourth-highest toxic discharge in the country, according to a 2009 report by Environment America

if you look closely you can see some Dolphin fins

The river supports a large variety of native and introduced aquatic species:

  1. I love Savannah too. It has such a wonderful feeling of history. I’d love to do the river cruise one day, but so far, we’ve only stayed there overnight on our drives up to NJ and back. How cool to see the dolphins! So shocking about that toxic discharge, though. 😦 Your sunset photos are gorgeous. No wonder you were so thrilled with them. xx

  2. I’ve never been to America, but I’ve always wanted to, and given the problems travelling in Europe now brings the USA looks a more and more attractive holiday option.
    As always I enjoyed your fabulous photographs, how nice you’ve had one made and framed, a beautiful reminder of happy days!

    • Thank you Paul, reading ….like the other side of the coin…. If Trump should win and become the President we may be jumping the pond sooner rather than later. We have a list of places already,and so many friends to visit. We have never been to Europe.
      Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Sunday and week coming up
