I had to Jerk Chicken sandwich Guy featured on his show. The chicken was dry and bland, but the plantains were great. Members of our group had the Seafood Bouyon which was excellent. The tacos were also good.
I did not choose wisely.
Stories from the road
Donna was riding with her friend Mel when she needed to go. With no facilities near by, she elected to use some bushes that would shield her from Mel. Mid way, she hears the loooong blast of a train whistle. Looking over her shoulder she sees the train's engineer who has an unobstructed view of her derriere.
In April of 1862 the Rebel occupied Fort Pulaski was attacked by Union forces. They took 112 days to dig in their gun batteries a mile from the fort. On April 10th the Union forces open fire using new rifled artillery pieces. The South considered the 7.5 foot thick masonry wall impervious to cannon fire. The thinking of the day was that beyond 700 yards smooth bore cannon and mortars were ineffective. But the new rifled cannons proved so destructive that the Rebel forces surrendered after 30 hours of shelling.
I have rejoined my friends traveling up the east coast. Even though it is raining, eight of us decided to drive into Savannah.
I left sunny California for this!!!!
All the streets are lined with beautiful spanish moss draped oak trees
We went to the old River Front. It was the working waterfront in the 1700 & 1800s.
It is now the Pier 39 of Savannah. The rain stopped and we had fun exploring the waterfront.
Streets paved with ballast stones.
