Harbor Island - Day Four

On Tuesday everyone but Aunt Sandy headed down to Savannah for the day, which was only about an hour and twenty minutes away. We went to Paula Dean's restaurant, Lady and Sons, first to see if we could get a reservation. We had 3:15 and 8:00 to choose from, so we went for the earlier and then headed to river street. We enjoyed all of the shops, but it was incredibly hot with a heat index of 108. We decided to hop on a trolley tour which was also HOT but fun and informative. We learned a lot about Savannah and got to see some neat things like Forrest Gump's bench and several buildings from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. After the tour, we headed back to Paula's and were seated right away. I think it's impossible to say how good it was because we were all so hot that we weren't very hungry and didn't fully enjoy the meal. I will say that the Bleu Cheese dressing, croutons, fried chicken and gooey cake were all highlights. After the meal the kids all got to pick a prize from Aunt Sandy at a little shop across the way and Seth chose a giant whoopee cushion that he thought was hilarious.We had planned on staying in Savannah longer, but by then we were done and ready to cool off so we headed back to the beach for more swimming, fishing, games and fun.
