Wormsloe – A Savannah Side Trip
I was really excited about this stop, all of the pictures I’d seen of Wormsloe were spectacular. Except that what I’d seen turned out to be exactly what I got. I have to say it’s impressive, pulling up and through this archway – your first view of the 1.5 mile oak strewn lane breathtaking in all of it’s glory.
You pay to get in the park at the front, then spend thirty minutes taking pictures of the entrance to Wormsloe, the gate, the small cottage. Then you drive down, and the view stays amazing, under this canopy of ancient oaks – soft light soaking in, the spanish moss acting as a filter for the sunlight. Almost in the middle you come to this little white fence – that’s when I had Kate slow the car down so I could grab a couple shots (you aren’t supposed to stop on the drive because of the tree roots).
There is a museum, but we didn’t spend a lot of time in there. The pathways network from the museum, leading visitors to traverse the plantation. There is almost nothing of importance to note, a bit of rubble from the ruins, the only exception was the marsh just off the shoreline. I would say I was disappointed, but paying $7 to drive down the most wonderful drive I’ve ever been down in my life was worth it. Absolutely.
