Somewhere on the backroads between Georgia and South Carolina, I caught a glimpse of a lot of “white” out of my peripheral vision. I had to travel about a half mile before I was able to turn around and pull off the side of the road. I was thrilled to stumble across the rookery. I counted about 100 egrets in the area. I hated to leave. But! I noticed a couple of days later, after downloading the photos … the wood stork standing back to back with the egret and another sitting in the nest. I didn’t even notice him while standing there. A real treat.

On our US Route 17 Holiday Road trip, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah, GA was on my “must see” list. And the church did not disappoint — it is absolutely beautiful.
The cathedral sits on Lafayette Square in downtown Savannah. Construction on the cathedral began in 1873 and completed in 1896 with the additions of the spires. It was almost destroyed by fire in 1898 but survived, although needing extensive repair.
It was beautifully decorated for Christmas — quite a sight! And it appeared to be the “busiest” tourist attraction too!
From Maryland and sometimes North Carolina, where land and sea meet the sky.
