Thursday Doors – 15

Savannah Doors

We will stay a while in Savannah – a wonderful place to spend your time. Let’s walk around and look at doors. One of these photos here was also shared in an earlier Monday Window post.

Some of the doors here are from River Street, a charming “museum” along the Savannah River where the old sailing ships used to dock. This was a street of warehouses and businesses bustling with the activities of bringing in goods from around the world and filling the ships with the exports of this then new country. Many of the ships came “light” – without much cargo – to pick up goods and had stones in their holds as ballast to assure stability and a safe sail. These stones were unloaded before the holds were filled with the goods for the return voyages. Many alleys and byways are paved to this day with ballast stones from those days.

Now River Street is a place for visitors to enjoy the river front and the many shops, pubs and restaurants that have taken over the old buildings. Pleasure boats dock here and occasionally the “tall ships” will visit. But that is a topic for next week’s Monday Window. Now let’s just enjoy the sights.
