Chanty's in the Oak on Isle of Hope

This was my absolute favorite.. There wasn't one or two chanty's in the oak there was 7 or 8

all dressed up in her spanish moss

I don't know if this is just for Halloween or not but I bet at night it is fun to see and I bet it is fabulous to see when you are on the water coming into the marina.

I would like to share this email from an Isle of Hope treasure Miss Anita Adair ~ Miss Adair thank you for taking the time to stop by, I do believe my girlfriend Beth and I had the pleasure of meeting you one Sunday morning back in November 2009. You can see the pictures we took that day by clicking here you shared your love and knowledge of the island with us and made our day even more special.. Thank you.. and a big thank you to our friend Miss Nell Jean of Secrets of a Seed Scatterer for introducing us,

I enjoyed your blog on our 275th celebrations on Isle of Hope, I live here.
I was surprised that you did not have a picture of the Wrights house on the Bluff, it is the second oldest on the island. Many of these homes belong to friends of mine. In December St. Thomas church has a Christmas tour of homes, many on the Bluff will be on the tour. I know the Wrights house is on it, the Wrights house is next to the last one on the Bluff before you get to LaRoche Ave.
Many people enjoyed their day with us, I served on the planning committee.

I did not get to see all of the homes. Being with Miss Lois you run on her time so I am going to do my best to get to this years Christmas tour ..

This is my beautiful niece Shelby who spotted her favorite book and then went gaga when she realized the authors where there. It is a really cute book called Scampering Through Savannah by Renee and Mac Newell, Illustrated by Amie Jacobsen it is about exploring historic Savannah, GA with two rascally raccoons. Showing off all the best tourist spots in the city, the book has been quite a hit. It can be found in many shops and bookstores throughout Savannah, ebay and other online bookstores.

I enjoyed every minute of my day on Isle of Hope and I hope that I was able to share just a little bit of it's charm with each of you. Happy Halloween ya'll I'm off to the dentist ... Who schedules a dentist appointment on Halloween??? if they are dressed up like vampires I'm out of

P. S. ~ You can click on any picture to see it larger. Thank you so much for stopping by.. Hope you enjoyed yourself. Please checkout some of the OLDER post and come back often..
hugs from Savannah ya'll, Cherry


  1. I'm glad Anita got in touch with you. She and I go back a long way, so far back that we haven't seen one another in fifty years! My mother used to be her Sunday School teacher back in the days when teenaged watermelon cuttings included a chocolate cake. I'm looking forward to one day visiting Savannah.

  2. How lovely, Cherry ... do so love Spanish Moss! Happy November :)

  3. Cherry, I loved your post about Isle of Hope. It is a magical place.
    I went to give blood, once in December, the staff was dressed in Halloween costumes. That was kinda spooky. Hugs, Ginger

  4. Oops, I meant to type October. I guess in December they dress as elves.

  6. Cherry, if you want to visit the Isle Of Hope again.
    On October the IOH Methodist church will have their semiannual Day on the Island with a tour of 5 homes.
    The next day will be the Art Show which is at the park and marina.
    Come join us I think you will love it. Day on the Island has lunch and several shops with goodies as well as the tour of homes.
    The Art Show will be followed by a musical concert by several bands.
