10 Questions About…


Snow in Virginia?! But melted before the Carolinas by Ann Treacy

Do you know why Northerners make crazy road trip plans in March? For the weather – so imagine our shock and awe when we woke in Richmond to snow. It was beautiful – especially since we also woke up in a poshy posh resort – but it was still snow. Apparently they had closed the schools in the area. Big travel advisories – although it was really only a couple of sloppy wet inches.

So we kept on trucking!

Onto North Carolina – which is turns out is a very pretty state. We had lunch in Fayetteville at a place called Circa 1800. The food was very good – the ambience a little strange. It was a hair fancier than we needed – although usually we can rise to that kind of occasion. What we didn’t need at lunch was a bar patron who had maybe had a little too much wine. In the end, he cursed the manager as he was escorted out the door. (Cursed as in – a hex on your family, not just the two word curses most of us could come up with.)

Lily is doing research on Dr Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X, so it was kind of interesting to put their lives in perspective as we toured various areas. Also she was smart enough to ask Grandpa questions about what he remembered from being a kid and Grandpa talked about his first trips south.

From North Carolina we headed to South Carolina. From South Carolina to Georgia.

We spent the night in Savannah. We ended up taking a wrong turn and drove through a less picturesque part of Savannah. The houses were very small – and I was amazed at how close they were to the street. But eventually we found the hotel – which was a very nice place kinda far out of town. We walked around Savannah a little bit. We saw Paula Deen’s restaurant. Lily was very excited to eat there – until she saw the food. Not a ton to offer a budding vegetarian. But we found out that he brother had a restaurant on Tybee Island. So we ate out there. It was dark so I’m sure we missed the best part of heading out there – the view – but the place was kinda fun.

States visited: VA, NC, SC, GA

Paula Deen’s is all about the fried chicken and cheesy biscuits. Better luck finding seafood at Bubba’s place? Tybee Island — so jealous! You know that’s one of our very favorite vacation spots. Quiz word for the day: “brackish” – this describes the water around Tybee and Savannah.

Have another great day you road warriors!

The seafood at Bubba’s was great. And we talked about you guys while we were there. Really as we sat down I said – shoot we should have called Jan for a recommendation. But sometimes I’m not so sharp on the road.

I’m going to fit brackish into conversation twice this week!
