MVU 5

Mandatory vacation updates 1, 2, 3, & 4. I promise this is the last one. I just had a lot to say about it! 🙂

On the last full day at Tybee Island, Sean and I made our way into Savannah. A super historical town, Savannah was a good place to save for our last full day. We started off by finding one of those trolley tours to ride around town and here the historical details from a knowledgeable guide. Our guide, Steve was an awesome guy and knew everything about Savannah and even a few funny jokes. He was a runner, too! While we were enjoying fireworks on the pier, he was in Atlanta getting ready for the Peachtree Road Race (the world’s largest 10k, with over 60,000 people supposedly signed up)!

Anyway, Savannah was beautiful (even with the smog and smoke rolling off the wildfires in Southern Georgia and Northern Florida)! The buildings were nice, the Spanish Moss (which is neither Spanish nor a moss) was characteristic of an old Southern town. It was just a fun tour, and a fun walk afterward.

  1. yup, Spanish Moss is an airplant related to the pineapple. it got it’s name from the indigenous people comparing it to the beards sported by Europeans exploring the New World. it has been used in everything from mattresses to car seat cushions. the Timucuan people of North Florida would weave it into the dresses the women would wear. (after it being dried out in smoke to run off all the redbugs that like to inhabit it)
