Home Again, Home Again...
















After ten days and more than 3,000 miles on the road, the girls and I are back home. As you can see, we did not pack lightly. A borrowed mini van gave us room for lots of stuff. The good news with that fact was we nearly always had whatever we needed. The bad news with that fact is we often had trouble finding it. Items shifted while we drove and at least twice when the back gate opened things all but leaped from the vehicle as though trying to escape the shenanigans within. This became more than a tad embarrassing the day we had to chase aluminum bottles of beer rolling in every direction across a parking lot. Strangers narrowed their eyes at us, no doubt suspecting we were on a wild and reckless 10:00 a.m. binge.

As it happens, we cut our trip a few days shorter than intended due to rain. It's not fun to get drenched when you're trying to see the sights. Thus Savanna, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina were spared our company. At least for now...

Traveling is fun, but it's always great to be back home. Next post, you're invited to ride along with us and see the south.

Hilarious...I can imagine several women chasing cans of beer while the locals look on!

Glad you enjoyed your trip, too bad it was cut short by rain.

You'll love Savannah when you have the chance to visit. It's a walkable city, and Tybee island is just a stone's throw. :) Glad you're home safe & sound. I look forward to hearing about your travels!

The Beer Bottle Roll would be a great name for a road trip story. Sounds like you had so much fun. Tell us all about your escapades.

So glad you made it home safely, Pat, and that you had so much fun. I agree with Linda: The Beer Bottle Roll would be a great story! Can't wait to read your next post and hopefully see pics. Also, I love the new look of your blog :)

Oh, those shenanigan-escaping items made me laugh. So glad you had fun, Pat!
