Tuesday after school let out we threw a bunch of warm weather gear in the back of the Rabbit and headed out on our Thanksgiving journey. The first stop was Savannah, where we spent the night and about half the day yesterday. It was a pretty uneventful ride, thanks to the world's best 7 year old traveler.
Since we woke up at the crack of dawn and scarfed down some Goosefeathers Cafe Eggel Bagels before downtown had really woken up yet, we headed out to the Bonaventure Cemetery to poke around and look at all the old gravestones. It was beautiful and the Spanish moss was amazing.
When Kyle had gotten his fill of Spanish-moss-over-lonely-statue picture taking, we hopped in the car and drove around the dusty cemetery roads trying to find the "bird girl" statue from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. That lasted a good 10 minutes before I Googled and discovered that they moved that statue a while back because of dorky tourists like us. Oops.
We wandered around downtown and popped in and out of shops for a while until we found an awesome park for Henry to get some ya-yas out.
Okay, maybe I had some ya-yas to get out myself...
After a slightly disappointing lunch at a local dive place, we once again loaded up in the Rabbit and headed out for destination #2- Orlando. The drive was a little slower and we got stuck in about an hour of bumper to bumper ickiness outside the city, but we made it without any major incident. We had a surprisingly awesome dinner at a real hole in the wall pizza joint (I WILL eat their 28" pie someday!) and tucked in to our hotel beds pretty early. I fell asleep to the dulcet sounds of Jamie and Adam trying to simulate escaping a sinking car on MythBusters.
Next stop? Picking up Q in Celebration and finishing our journey on Don Pedro Island. Oooh. I think Kyle just got back with coffee.
