French youth enjoy day of touring Savannah

The youth group from France enjoyed touring Savannah on Thursday. They visited the beach at Tybee Island, and saw dolphins in the ocean and even found a crab on the beach.
They visited First African Baptist Church, the oldest black church in North America, and saw where it is believed that escaping slaves were hidden in the “underground railroad.”
They saw the beautiful cathedral of St. John the Baptist, and the fountain at Forsyth Park. After walking on River Street, they rode a ferry across the Savannah River to come home, tired from a long day.
