First off, I just found out about this motorhome burning up. It was parked just a couple of spots down from us In Red Bay, Alabama. The fire started the morning after we had driven away. Luckily no one was hurt but the camper was toast. I guess they are still trying to figure out how it started but it burned up fast.
That reminded me to get the camera out and take pics of all our stuff. I now have a record of all the contents in the bins and cupboards throughout, also of receipts of big ticket items. Sure hope we never have that kind of disaster, but at least now we are somewhat prepared to deal with insurance.
OK. On to Savannah. It was really crowded due to Spring Break. We could hardly cross the streets because of the congestion. Spring Break has followed us from Texas to South Carolina. All of March and part of April. Guess we really need to mark all these holidays down to avoid clog ups in the future.
I really like the gutter spouts as much as the buildings. The cotton exchange was nicely built.
I am very carefully holding up this bridge.
This sweet shop was doing a bang up business. I could not believe the size of these massive toffee apples. I would call these gob stoppers.
We stopped for some BBQ ribs at the Pink Pig. The decorations were better than the BBQ.
It was interesting to watch this game. It’s called Bubble Soccer. I wonder why.
I knew I was not the only one in this country to use the term “Bob’s your Uncle.” By the way, someone asked how to see bigger pics when you get the email. Just click on the picture and it should enlarge. Not that many of my photos are top notch or anything.
Now we move on to Charleston, South Carolina. It was less crowded and we had a lovely day walking the streets. Lots of colorful houses.
I must say that after you have seen one you have seen them all. We aren’t so interested in inside tours either. Seen plenty of that old stuff in England and Europe. Guess we are more into the great outdoors and people watching.
We took a boat trip to Fort Sumpter as it was on our National park list. Most of the National parks in the East seem to be connected to the Revolutionary or Civil wars. Lots of fort ruins and battlefield landmarks. Most of the parks out west are of awe inspiring scenery.
This American Revolutionary soldier did not mind me giving him a hug. We Brits are good sports even when we lose the war.
