Bluff Drive Christmas

While my in-laws were in town over the weekend, we all bundled up to walk down to Bluff Drive to see the sights and Christmas happenings. It was a chilly morning, but the scenery made it all worth the red noses. Almost every house has put out a touch of holiday cheer. It will definitely get you in the spirit! I decided to take my  nice camera this time to snap some decent pictures. My iphone just doesn't capture how amazing Isle of Hope is. Those that live on Bluff Drive are some fortunate people! I'm just thankful it is shared with all of us on-looker pedestrians. 


This house is one of the oldest homes on Isle of Hope. Built in 1848! The Burt Reynolds movie "Gator" from 1976 was filmed here.





This Victorian looking home was built in 1871. It was known as the "Yellow Fever House" for employees of the Skidaway & Seaboard Railroad to escape the yellow fever epidemic in Savannah.


17 Bluff Drive is easily my favorite home on the island.



The movie "Glory" was filmed on Isle of Hope, and in parts of the movie soldiers march up Bluff Drive.










Bluff Drive cottages sporting their Christmas wreaths. These cottages were rented by boatmen sailing the intracoastal waterway in the 1800s. The two live oaks you see here are more than 200 years old.











Tanner wasn't so sure about this singing wreath....



This girl LOVES Bluff Drive and seeing all the twinkly lights. She's ready for Christmas! How about you? Do you have any favorite areas of your town this time of year?
