Last week while we were eating at Sandfly Barbeque hubby of course called the owner over and we talked to her at length. I asked about the Forrest Gump museum and she informed us she didn’t know about any museum but that you couldn’t really get down to the house where it was actually filmed because it is a private residence.
She did however tell us if we had time that it would behoove us to drive down to the marina at the Isle of Hope and then drive the length of it and turn around and drive back. She pointed us in the general direction and told us we couldn’t miss it. She also informed us that was where all Savannah’s doctors and lawyers lived (along with old money, I am assuming).
She was correct. It was lovely and I’m glad we took the time to drive down there. There were lots of old BIG plantation type houses built on an inlet. Each had their own private piers across the road from their houses. Some were in better repair than others. Some were supplied with boats, some with yachts, some with naught.
I couldn’t imagine waking up each morning and looking out my front door and window at that view! With my love of the water, I wouldn’t mind
trying! It was just beautiful with all the old trees and Spanish moss water lapping at the shore. I could just imagine sitting out there in the
evening with a glass of wine or a might margarita and a book. I could actually see myself taking a cot down there and sleeping in one of those little boat house/gazebo thingees. The sound of the water I think would lull me to sleep. Although the fear of snakes an alligators might prohibit me unless I’d had a LOT of that wine or margarita and then I wouldn’t care if I got eaten!
I’m gonna post these pics in no particular order and I have no clue who owns any of the houses or what dock/pier goes to what house. I just think it’s all gorgeous. Enjoy the visual vacation!
