Still back tracking to share things we did in May. We spent 3 days camping on Tybee Island which is just outside Savannah at the end of May. We spent just about everyday on the beach and one day in Savannah.
Shelby Girl just loves the beach! I joke with Don all of the time about Shelby being so much like him that I wondered if I actually contributed any genetic material at all. BUT, her love of the beach and the ocean she definitely gets from her Mama!
When the tide went out that morning, a small pool of water was trapped on the beach creating a litle tide pool for the children to play in. It was great!
She made it to about 1pm that day and was soon down for the count. She slept for 3 hours that afternoon. Once she woke up, she asked to go back to the beach.Having fun with Dad. Her favorite kind of ride.
We took a break from the beach on our last day and went into Savannah for the day. It was hot and at lunch time we were looking for a cool spot for lunch.We found it! This was such a surprise. Vic's on the River is down on the riverfront and is close to the middle trolley stop. You walk into the ground floor and take the elevator to the 4th floor to be seated in the restaurant. The view was fantastic.When you land on the fourth floor, the elevator opens to a beautiful piano bar and beyond that was this long simply stated and decorate room. They were totally kid friendly and Shelby had a meal for only $5.00.
We got a table right at the window. I thought it was a bit quiet for lunch time, but it filled up rather quickly.We enjoyed hot biscuits with fresh marmalade and honey butter. Shelby was all about those!We enjoyed this lovely white wine with lunch. I had the waitress write it down so I could look for it back home. I am still searching for the piece of paper. When I find it, I will share the wine with you. It was outstanding! REVISED: The wine is Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand-2008, and it is only $10.00 a bottle. I chose the Shrimp and Cheese Grits. It had smoky bacon and this yummy brown sauce. It was filled with parmesan cheese. I have been wanting to try this dish since I moved to Georgia and I was not disappointed. We will definitely be going back.
Lee, this last picture is for you. I took this picture of these Golden Girls as they were walking down the beach. It struck me how sweet they were. Some old friends talking and walking together. This will be us in a few years from now. Just a couple of old gals, talking about our children and probably our art, as usual. We'll be in better shape, though!
