Yesterday afternoon, Susie went into Savannah while we stayed back and rested and Nancy took a much needed shower (trust me, it was needed--she was soaked at James Island, dried off in the car, and then was soaked after hitching up here. (did I mention with sweat?)
Today, we took a ride to St. Simon's Island.
|This is where Nancy and Rich stayed before they had Lizzie. Nancy has many fond and romantic memories of this lovely place.|
|Just for Good Measure|
|This is the cafe that Rich used to love to walk to because he liked to people watch and he liked their food. There weren't as many places to eat back then--except for a little cafe' where they had breakfast.|
|I can't believe it, Nancy forgot to take my picture!!! Well, I guess it was difficult holding my leash, trying to eat, and handling the camera so I won't gripe too much.|
|Everyone stops to pet me and they all tell me how handsome I am. Well, I'm not bragging...I'm just saying'.|
We couldn't be on St. Simon's without taking a picture of the light house. You'll see how Nancy solved the white problem! There was a big outdoor antique fair going on--Nancy once bought an old, old wooden ironing board from an antique show in the same place the last time they were together on the island.
|Isn't it a pretty lighthouse? That's the lighthouse keeper's house.|
We drove the 80 miles back to our campsite and will be going back out to go to Savannah for dinner. Hopefully, they will find another restaurant that lets me in. I behave so I see no reason for all the silly rules. Oh, before I forget, Nancy said that she has discovered that her little camera doesn't do well with the color white. Hmmm... See how she solved it in the lighthouse picture? She says, "There's more than one way to skin a cat!" (not a very nice thought)
Nothing more for tonight. Susie (the apple that fell far from the tree) wanted to eat at Johnny Harris, a famous BBQ place in Savannah. From there, we went into downtown Savannah. Nancy and I stayed in the truck in the parking deck while Susie went down to River Street. Not many shops were open so she was back, quickly. Everything is crowded down here--people everywhere.
There are tropical storm warnings up so we'll wait to see if we are evacuated. They close the main artery (316) going east and all lanes are used to go west (inland). That should be fun the way Nancy panics in crisis. :))
