|Tree Lined Avenue into Wormsloe Plantation|
Springtime in South Carolina is indeed beautiful. I never tire of the continuing sunshine and blue skies and take every opportunity to spend time outside. Last week Joe and I toured the ruins of what was one of the first plantations in South Carolina. The breathtaking entrance into this estate is lined with magnificent live oaks that form a magical canopy. Wormsloe was the colonial estate of Noble Jones (1702-1775). Jones was a physician and carpenter and one of the first to arrive on the shores of Savannah. Wormsloe's ruins are the oldest standing structures in Savannah. Visitors can talk to interpreters, visit the museum and see a film and artifacts regarding life on the plantation, and walk the scenic trail where demonstrators in period dress entertain and inform visitors of life during the 1700's. It is an interesting insight to the history of this area and well worth a visit if you are visiting the area. Of course my personal photographer was hard at work documenting everything. Enjoy all of his wonderful photos!
