In the Rear View

Georgia on my mind

After camping, we woke up and drove to Savannah, where we spent the better part of the day.

Savannah is a laid back and artsy place, with trees overhanging the streets, statued historic squares, and classic antebellum architecture. We had eggs with biscuits and grits at a local diner, then walked the waterfront on River Street. Met some friendly people including Lamont, a cool street vendor, and an artist from Rhode Island!

After that, we walked and drove around some of the historic areas of Savannah, including the park, bench, and church area where they shot the bus stop and feather scenes from Forrest Gump. Then we filled up the tank for $3.29 a gallon (our cheapest so far) and made for McDonough, where Chris lives.

Note: I should also mention that on our way to Savannah, we got some of the nastiest peanuts I've ever seen. If you ever get the chance to have boiled peanuts, don't take it. They're slimy, mushy, and gross.
