Vacation Time

We spent the last week on VACATION - St. Simons and Savannah GA - hot but relaxing.
In Savannah "H" found what had to be the steepest staircase on the face of the earth.
Moss covered trees line Bay street.
Our hotel was just around the corner from "Paula Deens" place. Getting to eat a meal here is an almost full time job. They begin a Priority Seating System at 9:30am each morning. Not a reservation but a time to show up again for a meal. We decided to eat at "Moon River Brewing Company" instead no line, air conditioning and Russian Imperial Porter beer.
It seems like every vacation we end some place with a pier and at no time during these many years of walking on vacation piers have I ever seen anyone ever catch a damn fish.
We rented bikes on St. Simon's one afternoon and during our ride we came across where apparently the power lines had grown through a tree. Being in South what do Southeners do but cut the tree away from the wires and leave the little nubs still attached to the wire.
St Simon's lighthouse
And more moss......

Savannah is a really cool place. And I did manage to eat at Paula Deen's place (Lady and Sons). Best cheese grits evah!

You're lucky if we had managed to stay for a few more days we would have had a meal there. They have installed a misting system trying to keep the folks waiting in line cool.
We did manage to pick up a few items at the gift shop.
