We’ve heard back from Stacia Barczak, one of the recipients of this year’s Van Marnius Swets Travel Award:
Hello! I’m sharing these photos as an update to my Van Marinus Swets Award for travel. The award was put to good use!!
Last week, my husband, Tom, and I spent a long weekend in Hilton Head, S.C., and Savannah, Ga. It. Was. So. Hot. But we had a great time and saw a ton. The award helped us with our lodging, which made the trip that much more affordable — so thanks again for providing this fun and important benefit!
We flew direct from GRR to SAV and then drove out to Hilton Head for a night, staying two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean. Then we headed back to Savannah and stayed for two nights in a historic inn that may or may not be haunted (but it WAS once used as a funeral home, so who knows??).
I’ve included photos from various points in our trip.
