Wormsloe Plantation, Savannah

I was recently the guest of Wormsloe Plantation, on the Skidaway River near Savannah. Among the highlights of the visit was hunting for wild Atlantic ribbed mussels in the beautiful tidal marshes. After a good rinsing, these large mussels are sweet and tasty.

The tabby ruins of the original house are the oldest structures in Savannah. If you’re in the area, do not miss the grand alley of 400 live oaks. Noble Jones, an original settler of the Georgia colony, founded Wormsloe. His descendants still live at Wormsloe and maintain a close relationship with The University of Georgia.
