A little bit more casual today
I keep teasing Lon that I am going to get a tattoo. It makes him crazy, but I really am going to get one one of these days!
Never did figure out what this was for. But it looked pretty cool
City Market Skyline
These lovely Belgian Draft Horses, they were just waiting for us to take a tour! So we did.
Their names are Guinness and Jamieson. They are retired Amish working horses from Ohio. Just like the ones we met earlier in Charleston.
The next pictures are of the architecture of the historic district of Savannah!
Detail from the Federal Courthouse
Ogilthorpe's Square! He was the one that designed the city squares
This was originally a stable for Arabian horses.
We poked around the shops a little bit. This was outside a gelato shop
Since it was National Pretzel Day (yes, it really was)
we stopped by the Savannah Candy Kitchen. Lon and I each got a chocolate covered pretzel with sprinkles. We like National Pretzel Day!
Daddy showing Lon all sorts of yummy candies. Gummy sharks, gummy fried eggs, wax bottles, yummy stuff

Watching them make the candied popcorn at the popcorn shop
Bike rentals. Swipe a credit card and they charge you until you bring it back.
Thought this was fun. At the end of this block is Paula Deen's store and restaurant.
We found this fun and funky pizza place called Sweet Melissas. They put an Italian herb blend under the crust before baking it. It was very good!
Nathan Greene's square.
He got heat stroke in Savannah and they bled him, which killed him.

Thor! The Mighty Thor!
I want one of these! What I would do with it, I am unclear, but isn't that a cool little truck?
Boats on the way to Tybee. Lon wanted to go back to the beach. So we did. It was 83 degrees and a Saturday afternoon.
I had goofed around long enough that the parking lot should have emptied out a bit, so back to the beach I went!
I did find parking! And I saw Lon in the waves, having a great time! He was jumping waves like I used to do in Florida!
Lon and some beach friends dug this hole. It is up to Lon's waist
water and sand, together!
Then it truly was time to go.
The boys went to change into clothes. Since we planned to go to the beach, they had swimsuits, and clothes packed. The one thing they did not do was put sunscreen on each other's backs. They are both lobster back red. Poor boys
We realized we were very hungry. So when we saw this place on the way back, we stopped! It was good!
Lon and Dad dig into the combo platter appetizer.
It had fried shrimp, conch fritters, calamari, and something called shrimp salad. Think of macaroni salad, and put shrimp in instead of macaroni. I tried it. I would never order it. Everything else was so good! Lon had the adult flounder, I had shrimp and Mark had Low Country Boil. It was all yummy!
Krispie Kreme! Super Yummy
What a fun day! We had a great time. Lon talked about wanting to move to Savannah.
