We left for Georgia on Friday, May 15th. Wayne, my parents, and I drove and my brother and sister-in-law were flying. We left right after work and stopped in Chattanooga, TN. I think the travel the first night bothered me more than any other day. I worried about being in the car too long or if we hit a big bump...this got better...I had PLENTY of time to get better at it. The following day we made it to Savannah, Georgia. We stayed there until we could pick Ben and Court up at the airport then we went to visit some family. From there we headed to our final destination, Tybee Island, Georgia. We stayed in the "Key Lime Parrot" cottage. I'm sure to most it is way to colorful but it was perfect for me...I love a bright house. Now it rained most of the way from home to Georgia and for the most part it never stopped while we were there. Not to mention the fact that it was about 55 or 60 degrees for the first few days. We definitely didn't pack for the correct weather. The funny part is that when we talked to everyone back in Indy they told us how beautiful it was... 80 and sunny. UGHHH! We went to Georgia for that weather. One traveler that we met on a trolley in Savannah said "hey, a bad day of vacation is still better than a good day at work". I totally agree!!!! We had a great time despite the weather. We played lots of games, still managed to get to the beach between rainstorms, and ate at some great restaurants. Here's a link to pictures from the trip.
