Antique Cars in Richmond Hill

Occasionally, we see antique cars driving around Richmond Hill, due in no small part to the town's connection to industrialist, Henry Ford.

On Monday, I spotted a flock of them, all headed towards Kilkenny Marina. Out of curiosity, and my personal love of antique cars, I decided to follow them...

Find out where the cars were headed, and see more pictures, by clicking on the "Read more!" link below.

I found them all parked at Outrigger Restaurant, with their owners inside enjoying lunch. As it turns out, Richmond Hill is just one of their stops on the spring tour of the Coastal Georgia Region Antique Club of America, including historic Savannah not thirty minutes away, as well as Beaufort and Bluffton, both in South Carolina.

All aboard!

I accompanied a friend and her daughter on an overnight school trip to Cordele, Georgia, which is about three and a half hours from Richmond Hill. In Cordele we boarded a S.A.M. (Savannah, Americus and Montgomery) train for a sightseeing trip to Jimmy Carter's childhood home in Plains, Georgia, as well as the Habitat for Humanity museum.

We saw lots of blossoms--wisteria, dogwood and azaleas--from what must have been old home sites. The train ride was lots of fun and comfortable, and evoked the image of traveling on the Polar Express!

St. Patrick's Day in Savannah

For those of you who didn't know, Savannah is home to one of the largest St. Patrick's Day celebrations in the nation. It's a known fact that the city--including schools--recognize the event as a holiday, including a city-wide parade that fills Savannah with waves of smiling faces in a flood of green.

In addition to the usual festivities, I was lucky enough to have an extra-special reason to party, as I enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my family, celebrating the impending arrival of my grandchild.

As if green beer weren't reason enough to make a person smile!

Coastal Georgia, a Great Place to Live!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Teresa Timmons and I am a realtor at Remax Accent in Richmond Hill, Georgia. Located a mere twenty minutes south of Savannah, Richmond Hill is the place I've called home for nearly ten years.

It was the U.S. Army that first brought me to the area, as a military wife following her husband on a tour of duty. But, it was the town, with its casual pace of life, as well as the proximity to the historical Southern beauty of Savannah that eventually won me over to stay for as long as I have.

I've started this blog in the hopes of sharing why I've chosen to make Richmond Hill my home--and why I think you should consider making it yours as well.
