For Traveling Thursday I thought I’d share a very special leg of our last trip (Summer 2006). Our one and only family trip to the Mainland that was not about visiting my relatives I California. For Daughter’s graduation celebration we went to the East Coast. After Boston, NYC, and DC; we rented a car and drove from DC to my sister’s in Florida. We stopped in Savannah, Georgia for three days and fell in love.
I’m used to the Pacific Coast Highway on the West Coast, so I had no idea that the nine hour drive down I-95 would look pretty much like this the whole way.
But we still enjoyed the green. The rivers and bridges. Next time I would plan ahead and know the local diners to stop at and get a better feel for the South. However, we made up for it our days in Savannah.
We went to Oatland Island and an animal preserve there.
We drove out to Tybee Island and got to see an East Coast beach.
And we hung out on River Street.
I loved getting to go to Paula Dean’s Restaurant, Lady and Sons. We also ate one night at a local place by our motel called Sticky Fingers that had really good BBQ.
While we are in the South, I’d like to also invite to virtually travel over to visit Angie and Kathryn at their new upgraded literary home, Rose and Thorn. They are having their grand opening today. They are wonderful writers, and two of the nicest bloggers out there. I once asked Angie what Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning was (she mentioned it in a post) and she sent me some! Now that’s nice. And yummy.
Happy virtual traveling. It’s almost the weekend!
Link up your travel posts, your staycation posts, or the favorite places you have in the place you call home. Then let’s take a virtual road trip. Aloha.
