Finally we have arrived at a place where people are warm, friendly, easygoing and don’t try to run you off the road. They actually wait for pedestrians in the crosswalks and greet strangers like their friends. I like Savannah very much because it is beautiful with all of the park-like squares downtown, giant old oak trees full of Spanish moss, and cool cafes with exotic food everywhere.
Lisa and the boys enjoyed visiting the Jepson Art Center, a contemporary art museum that has children’s play areas. The kids’ section included building blocks, costumes, magnets and cute children’s books. Lisa also loved seeing the famous Bird Girl sculpture featured in the book and movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
They also attended Savannah State University’s vibrant homecoming parade, which included many high school bands and dance groups, classic cars and horses. The boys were entranced two hours straight.
I don’t know if I could tolerate the humid summers here but we will most definitely return again soon. We will be leaving tomorrow for Augusta, Georgia for two days and then on to Ashville, North Carolina for an entire week. My only regret so far is not spending more time in Charleston, South Carolina. My mood has improved greatly ever since we entered Virginia from the North.
I would like to give a shout out to my beautiful daughter Kym who is having a birthday in a couple of days, we miss you and love you whole banana bunches. Also my son Clayton is now engaged to be married to a beautiful young woman in Modesto, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I don’t know what I did to deserve such fantastic children and grandchildren but I thank my lucky stars everyday and pray for their continued health and happiness.
