Our stay at Skidaway Island State Park came to an end this morning as we packed up to head further south into Florida. Our second time here at this park was just as great of an experience as the first. Let’s hope that there will be many more visits here in the future.
Today is our last full day in Savannah and there is one thing left on our must do list before we leave tomorrow morning. And that is to eat at my favorite restaurant in all of the land… Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room!!! Kyle has never been there (gasp!) so we told that he must join us or else.
Since we got lucky with a last minute reservations at Fort Wilderness in Disney World, our time in Savannah is unfortunately cut short to just 4 days. That might sound like a decent amount of time to be in a city, and it usually is, but we love Savannah so much that we originally planned on being here for at least a week. Well, what are you gonna do? You win some and you lose some. I doubt anyone will be sympathetic for us for having to leave Savannah because we have to go to Disney World.
Last night we had a visit from the tooth fairy for Ava’s first tooth. She made a special request to see if she would leave her tooth. When we woke up this morning, her tooth was still there in the mini treasure box, there was a gold dollar and a special note from the tooth fairy.
We woke up on our last morning here in Charleston and got ready to head south to Marlene’s favorite city in the entire country. That of course is the beautiful hostess city of the south, Savannah, Georgia. The drive to Savannah takes about two hours and is typically pretty uneventful. Read more…
Last night was our eighth and final night here in Savannah. Eight nights is now officially the longest we have ever stayed in one place. That goes to show you how much we enjoyed it here in Georgia. I am sure by now you are a little tired of the Savannah updates. I promise, we are moving on to see more. Starting today.
Today I woke to a special surprise. Dan cooked breakfast for me!!! Just kidding. He does that every day for me. He cooks. I clean. It’s our little arrangement. But I did wake up to this. A card from the girls. And look who wrote ‘mama’ for the first time. Thanks Ava!! Wait a second!? Is that a bridge in the middle on my name? Ava, are you making fun of my fear of bridges? Nice, Ava. Real nice.
Today, our Savannah food binge continues at the Pirate House. Located at the historical Trustee Gardens within a stones throw of where Oglethorpe originally set camp as he came ashore. The Pirate House has been serving food and drinks to its customers shortly after the founding of the city of Savannah in 1753.
Today is the official start of the Prevost rally and we are surrounded by million dollar coaches everywhere we look. I would probably guess that there is in the neighborhood of 60-70 of them here. At around a million bucks a piece, we feel like the Beverly Hillbillies being amongst these mobile mansions.
Last night when we got back to the campsite, I walked over to the registration office to see if anyone from the Prevost rally had canceled. And wouldn’t you know it, one person did. And exactly one. I walked in at just the right moment too because just before I left the office with my new car tag in hand for another 3 nights, someone called to inquire about the recently sold out campground. Sorry buddy, looks like it’s just us and the buses this weekend.
Our third day in Savannah we thought might be our last. When we checked into the park, there were only 3 nights available. Now that we know that the Prevost rally is coming here for the weekend, we know we would either have to find another place to stay or move on to the next place tomorrow. Unless of course there is a cancellation… We will hold our breath.
