Hofwyle Broadfield Plantation
I just spent a couple of days in one of my favorite Georgia cities, Savannah. The weather was mild and there was no rain. I have a few spots that I like to go visit every time I am there. The Georgia State Railroad Museum is one of them There is always a project going on and plenty of history to photograph.
On this trip I took a drive down toward Darien Georgia and visited Hofwyle Broadfield Plantation. This is one of the early rice plantations in Georgia, converted to a dairy farm in later years. Once the last descendant passed, it was passed to the State Park system to care for.
I also took a little time in the afternoon to stop and photograph the fishing boats along the river bank in Darien.
On day two I visited The Cathedral of Saint John The Baptist, you will be amazed at such a wonderful place in a small southern town. Next time you visit Savannah drop in and look at this cathedral.
I also drove out to Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, an amazing place. I saw graves that dated back to 1775. The art work in the monuments is wonderful.
