On New Year's Eve, we went to Tybee Island to see the lighthouse.

Also on the property, was a renovation of the 1st Assistant Lightkeeper cottage.
Next, we walked to the beach. It was pretty chilly so we didn't stay long.
After driving back to Savannah, we took a hearse ghost tour. We found out on the tour that we ate at all the haunted restaurants (Sixpence Pub, The Pink House, and the Pirate's House) without realizing they were haunted.
One of my favorite spots was Candler Hospital, the yellow fever hospital. There were so many people dying that doctors feared the people of Savannah would panic and leave the city if they knew how many people were dying (sometimes 200 in one day!). To hide the true number of deaths, tunnels were built underneath the hospital to bury the dead.

Another haunted house, two girls were murdered here either by Jack the Ripper or a copy-cat murderer. Many people who take pictures of this house, end up seeing images of young girls in the windows.
A couple days after our trip, Shawn drove to his new duty station in Virginia. I'm hoping to visit him there in February.
