Celebrating “WalkingSquares” challenge.

Good morning Squarefriends! The day finds us walking through the seaport town of Darien, Georgia.

We decided stay one night in Darien to catch the ferry over to Sapelo Island (Reynolds Mansion on Sapelo Island) the next day. This being Georgia, you know there is some historic site in every town, and at least one fort near by. Well, true that! Darien has both.

The tabby walls in Darien, GA are the remnants of the town’s cotton exchange warehouses and naval stores built 1815-1830. 

Tabby is a masonry building material made up of sand, lime (procured through the burning of oyster shell), oyster shell aggregate, and water.

These materials are mixed into a slurry, poured into wooden molds called “shuttering”, and formed into foundations, walls, columns, or blocks; almost any application is possible. In Savannah, even streets are made of tabby.

Centuries of weather and exposure has worn away at these structures.

What a beautiful day walking through history and along the Darien River!

See you soon all my Squarefriends!
