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…
This morning the girls received some very good news. We are heading down to Savannah tomorrow after our stay here in Charleston. Although Savannah is Marlene’s favorite city from our last trip, that is not the news that got Ava so excited. This morning, we officially reserved 4 nights at Fort Wilderness in Walt Disney World and booked our tickets for the Magic Kingdom.
Today is the day after our first Airstream Thanksgiving and what did we do today? We decided against doing any shopping on Black Friday and chose to eat leftovers, of course, and to take it easy once again. The campsite we have here at James Island County Park is nice because we are parked next to a large grassy area that allows the kids to safely run around without worrying that they are too close to the street.
James Island County Park in Charleston is a great place to be for Thanksgiving. We did not know about it 2 years ago when we came through here and ended up staying a little further out at Oak Plantation RV Park. James Island is a little more expensive but it sits on a ton of land with very nice facilities right across a bridge from Charleston.
Our day started late as usual but with a knock at the door. Our buddy Kyle was taking off for the holiday weekend and wanted to say good-bye before he hit the road. It was probably a good idea to start the day a little earlier since we might run into some Thanksgiving traffic. We quickly got ready and crossed the street for some breakfast. Dan has been meaning to buy some clear coat touch up paint for our filiform corrosion issue, especially before we hit the east coast’s salty air, and lucky for us there was an auto parts store nearby.
We stayed a few miles north of Columbia, South Carolina at a Walmart when we drove down last night from Tryon. We are headed to Charleston but we decided that Columbia would be a good place for Luka to get his 6-month immunizations.
This morning we left our campground in Charleston, South Carolina to make our way north. And Ava left the campground in tears because she started to miss our doggy neighbor before we even had to say good-bye to him. On top of having a crying kid in the car, we also had a trash bag full of stuff we needed to donate. As we drove into the capital of South Carolina for the day, we quickly found a thrift store to drop off our crying kid old clothes and household items. Ahhhhhh! It feels so good to be reorganized again. But I doubt it will last long.
We decided to stay two nights at Oak Plantation RV Park so that means we have a full day today to meander around Charleston. Before we headed into town however, we drove across street from the campground to finally eat at a Waffle House.
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.
