The Princess at the Fort

Despite spending the majority of the morning feverishly cleaning up my apartment and ensuring that everything was moved out. I was determined to have the afternoon free to explore the fortress that is Fort Pulaski. I surely felt like a princess as I donned my dress and matching umbrella (don’t judge me). We crossed the bridge and casually made our way to the entrance delighted for the extended hour due to the start of Summer.

It was as I expected. No, it was even better! The weather was PERFECT and I was glad that the timing was so impeccable.

Welcome to Fort Pulaski, a ย national treasure! :ย IMG_2949 IMG_2783 IMG_2786

Over two acres of green space. which was once used by the soldiers for drilling, training, marching and recreation. It’s a wonder I didn’t get the urge to go cartwheeling all over the green ๐Ÿ˜€

In small rooms we got a feel of what went on behind the scene.ย IMG_2947IMG_2957 IMG_2960 IMG_2969 IMG_2976 IMG_2977

The clock struck 6 signalling our hasty retreat to the bridge .. though I feel it would be cool to be stranded there over night!IMG_2982

  1. Love it, love it, love it ๐Ÿ™‚ Pity i can’t go through and “like” pics. P.s. these photos do not solve the mystery of what’s behind the umbrella. you could have easily done a quick strip between photos :p

Would love to know what you think! .....
