Step back to the 1890’s at Fort Fremont on Lands End Road-Beaufort S Carolina

fr2fr7fr4fr3fr5fr6fr9fr10fr8

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this Fort except that it was rather spooky to me even in the afternoon.  It is located in Beaufort County  a coastal S Carolina county and this is on St. Helena island that has a wealth of culture,  marshland, wildlife and the after life.

For those who seek out the hauntings  you may want to take the 2 mile drive from Frogmore to Lands end in the evening, there is a mysterious light that has been known to chase vehicles.

I’m a beleiver because I felt the chills on a hot humid afternoon.  Also, I would not rate this Fort as family friendly, so keep the young and old nearby.

For a reference point this is located not far off the I 95 between Charleston S Carolina and Savannah Georgia.

Happy scary travels 🙂 If you want to taste the delicious local shrimp or Gumbo  I would suggest the Foolish Frog http://thefoolishfrog.com or any of the casual dining spots in the area….Low Country cooking…yummy

Savannah Ga to Pensacola Florida via Portland Oregon for lunch and sweets

That’s  not exactly how the trip was planned back in April, but the unexpected came up and instead of cancelling our week in Portland Oregon we just rerouted our trip back home to the event in Pensacola.

The typically rainy day in October worked well for me as long as I had my umbrella, and if I do it again I will wear rubber shoes because my feet did get wet.

Lunch at Jake’s Grill was fantastic with a cozy atmosphere and easy location to the rail system.  Our booth added privacy and the service was very good.

After lunch we walked around the city even with the rain because most businesses had awnings to slip under, I just had to make a stop at Blue Star  to try the Blueberry bourbon basil donut, and I’ll confess I ate two.  http://www.bluestardonuts.com

The seasonal change is apparent beautiful colors everywhere…Fall in Love with Portland

Happy travels and order the donuts!!!

Some days you just can’t resist getting out of the house to enjoy the pleasant 70 degree temperature and clear blue sky.  That day for me was November 1st in beautiful Savannah Georgia. Travelers on the I 95 can easily get to the Historic area by hopping on the I 16 (GA exit 99)  going east. It will end in downtown Savannah and anything you look at from that point on to the river will be a treat.

There are several restaurants and shops to keep you busy, or test your balancing skills  walking along  the streets of ballast stones that were  brought over on the ships to fill with cotton.

Our two stops included a cocktail on the rooftop lounge of the Bohemian Hotel (Rocks on the Roof)  http://www.bohemianhotelsavannah.com

followed by my craving for the best pralines ever….https://www.riverstreetsweets.com

Bring your camera and a seafood appetite!

My un-sightseeing stop in Navarre Beach Florida-

Traveling from Pensacola to Jacksonville Florida last week I hopped off the I 10 and enjoyed a few days on this beautiful beach.  The hotels and condos offered beautiful views on both the Gulf of Mexico side and the bayside.  It was an easy 25 mile drive off the I 10 and a scenic route to continue on to Destin.  If you are not carrying  your fishing gear that’s not a problem because it can rented.

The lodging was affordable,  and we ate delicious gulf shrimp.  Restaurants and shopping  all around.  Definitely will consider a second visit.

Happy Halloween

Most people enjoy a frightening fireside story about a haunted house. Stretch your imagination a bit let’s talk about the friendly ghost in a home that occupants typically learn to live with and accept their presence. Yes, they can be disruptive walking around the house at night turning on lights or opening doors and cabinets […]
