We arrived safely in Hardeeville, South Carolina on Thursday (11/06) after a leisurely trip of 259 miles (to date, we have traveled a total of 1,605 miles). As I noted before, we discovered that we enjoy interstate travel more, so this time we took I-77 South to eventually connect to I-95 South until we got close to our campground. The campground that we are staying at, Hardeeville RV Park, is a really nice large park that is located on Hwy 315. It appears to be on a major roadway to go to Savannah, Georgia or Hilton Head, South Carolina as there is a lot of traffic on the road, so it’s the perfect location for those of us that want to do the touristy thing and see the sights.
On Friday we went to Fort Pulaski which is located on Cockspur Island in Savannah, Georgia and spent the majority of the day there. The National Park Service offers two tours of the fort, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, or one can explore it on their own; however, I highly recommend taking one of the tours, as there is so much to learn in doing so.
The actual defining events of Fort Pulaski occurred during the American Civil War and the fort has stood guard over the Savannah River for over 150 years. It is quite an impressive fort and one that shouldn’t be missed if you are in the Savannah area. There are numerous original and reproduction artillery pieces on display, and on Saturdays, they demonstrate the operation of one of their medium-sized cannons.
