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,


Cherry,
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.
Anita Adair



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 there..lol

Isle of Hope 275 years of Beauty



A couple of weekends ago Isle of Hope had it's 275th Anniversary they honored the island with a parade and local artist selling their work at the marina. If you would like to see some beautiful local paintings of coastal Savannah checkout Irene Sainz Mayo her work is fabulous. There was lots of wonderful music and a whole lot of good old fashion fellowship. The best part of the day to me was the history they shared about some of the beautiful homes on the bluff. It is such a special place I thought I would share it with each of you. So come on back for the rest of the week and see some of the wonderful homes and views of this bluff community.



Don't you just love that pumpkin!



The landscaping at all of the homes is spectacular



Pirates and treasure oh my...







A green castle now that sounds like my kinda place to play..



the view has changed a little but is equally as beautiful





Miss Lois and Shelby sporting around the island..



We love our military..



I love the old cars..



There was reenactment soldiers from Wormsole , Mr. Piggly Wiggly himself, horses and fireman..



lots of families.. Some had four generations together. Do you see the little guy in the blue shirt up there, he spied someone he knew in the crowd and was going to shoot them with a rubber band ..lol . It was a perfect October day in Savannah and I sure enjoyed spending the day with Miss Lois, my little sis, her daughters and her granddaughter Miss Lexie... if only I had thought to have someone take our picture.. It's Outdoor Wednesday over at Miss Susan's A Southern Daydreamer Won't cha come join the fun... bet there is lots of pumpkins being shown off today..



don't forget more homes tomorrow till then ya'll have a great day.
hugs from Savannah ya'll, Cherry
