Some thing to see and romance about, dreams seam to come true here just meditate. And say a little prayer for everyone you know with eyes closed and then open and relax and enjoy.

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
