So I’m on a road trip.
I’m with my Mom. We decided it’d be a FABULOUS idea to DRIVE from Southern Ontario to Savannah, Georgia. Over 2 days. Crashing in Virginia for one night. Fun times.
Well, it was QUITE fun. We stopped in Spotsylvania County in Virginia for the first night, and I decided, being stupid tired by that point, and since we were nearly out of gas, that if we ran out of gas and had to walk to the hotel, the Spotsylvanians would eat us alive.
Day 2’s highlights were twofold. First, we stopped at THE CHEEZIEST tourist attraction I’ve EVER seen. Pedro’s… in South Carolina, just inside the South Carolina border. I think it’s actually called South of the Border. This place is advertised for 200 miles as you drive South down I-95 S, and probably all the way from Florida going North. Epically ridiculously cheezy, but so fun. It was a nice break from the trip… and I have lots of pictures of me sitting on animals that I would never otherwise get to sit on (don’t worry, they were statues…)
Second, with about 165 miles to go until we hit Savannah, the road signs started telling us how many miles there were to go….. so we started singing… to the tune of 99 bottles of beer on a wall. Well, let me tell you, it takes longer to drive a mile than it does to go through one verse of that song, and so there were silly additions as we sang. Trust me. Ridiculous.
Today, we hitched a ride into the City (we’re staying outside of it due to the fact that it is so much cheaper) on a trolley tour bus because we planned to take their tour so they offer free shuttles. We met some lovely people from NYC, Boston, Florida, all over the place. It was fun. And then we rode around the Downtown of Savannah ALL DAY on a Trolley bus, getting on and off at will.
I have so many pictures already that it would make your brain hurt, but below I will feature the highlights.
More to follow, as tomorrow we hit up three museums, and Wednesday we do an Atlantic Ocean dolphin cruise, where we have been guaranteed to see Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins swimming alongside our boat… and even if not, we get a river tour of some historic forts, some lighthouses, and some of Georgia’s beautiful islands. I’m stoked.
Here are the pictorial highlights so far:
