Taking a nap on the way there.
When we were on the riverboat, the guide told us about how many of the stones you see in the streets and buildings are ancient, and that they were originally ballast stones. I find this so interesting! The following paragraph is an excerpt from here.
"The origin of these stones is also unusual: they were transported from afar as ballast in the holds of sailing ships arriving in Savannah. Ships coming with little or no load would take on stones as ballast, and they would dump those stones as they took on loads in Savannah. These stones, probably from Africa or the Caribbean, were valuable building resources, because the sources of solid rock nearest Savannah are many miles inland across the sandy Coastal Plain."
These are the hardest streets to walk on! No two stones are the same.
Down on River St. things get a lot smoother, but the cars still bumped along.

We had the boys names written in wire and this guy has the nicest hand writing skills. You can click here to see an old photo I found on the web where you can sort of see his work.
Trying some organic candies Aunt Grace sent us.
"I'm not sleepy mama!"
We can't wait to go back!
