It was a big day for my car Marge – she turned 100,000 in car years on the way here!
After breakfast we drove out to Wilmington Island outside of Savannah and basically determined it was too far out for 1) A bakery to be visited by lots of people and 2) Us to live without feeling isolated.
It was very pretty though -
Then we found Washington Ave where there are supposed to be gorgeous houses. And there were!
They were lovely, but probably too expensive for us
Then we drove through commercial strip malls and stuff (which I don’t mind because we need them to live) and ended up in the boonies again. We don’t want to live here either:
I think Savannah is a beautiful city and we love the downtown historic district, but I think the conclusion is it didn’t seem very family friendly (or affordable) for a young couple looking for a hip town to raise kids (not anytime soon, guys, but we gotta consider these things!) We’re hoping to visit Charlottesville this summer, which seems to be a little more of what we’re looking for (minus the beach and palm trees ;( )
Before we headed back on I-95, we stopped at Food Lion to go to the bathroom. Grocery stores are good stops because they are usually clean and have lots of snack options
I got a 6-pack for the weekend
I got really hungry around 12:30 with an hour to go, so I broke into my mixed nuts again
We finally made it into Jax and then over to the beach where we’re staying. We were planning to go to a grocery store and pick up fruit and yogurt to take to the beach, but we heard our friends were going back to the hotel and so we decided on a small-restaurant kinda lunch using AroundMe:
We were totally surprised with how healthy this place was! And the decor was cool and modern
There was children’s artwork all over the walls –
I ordered a Greek Salad with Grilled Chicken, which came with pita and fruit
The salad was awesome and I inhaled it (both out of massive hunger and Matt’s necessity to get to the hotel to see the frat bros ASAP ). The chicken was awesome too!
He got egg salad and fruit. The sandwich was so fresh and delicious.
Lunch was filling, and eating fast made me feel too full, too fast But hopefully it’ll keep me satisfied through the wedding until the reception tonight.
Gotta go – frat bros are telling stories over beer
