“If you’re on holiday,” a British announcer says, “the only place to stay is Holiday Inn. And not just any Holiday Inn- the Holiday Inn Express. You might have to go down an exit, but it will be worth it! We’re conveniently located right off the exit. The only thing that should hinder your speedy arrival in your room is the fact that it’s located right in the middle of about eighteen other hotels. That’s right! And if you miss the entrance to the hotel, don’t worry! There isn’t any other entrance, but you’ll be able to spend a few minutes traveling a scenic route while you find somewhere to turn around.”
After traversing River Street and not only window-shopping but actually buying something from a candy store, we visited a small park-like area where Spanish moss covered the trees. Gorgeous!
I spent my time in the car ride from Savannah to our grandparent’s apartment working on a short story I had promised a few friends. This time, an Airhead was my incentive to get a lot done. Delicious! I didn’t get much done, but I did get past a huge hurdle in the plot. It should be easier for me to get some done next time. : )
When we finally got past the Florida state line, it was already about 6:30. We met our grandparents at a really yummy pizza place. (By the way, never try to watch a movie you’ve never seen before that you’ve wanted to see at a restaurant. Especially if it’s, say, Journey to the Center of the Earth and has an amazingly complicated plot line. There was no sound! So Arwen and I were watching it and we were like, “Oh, I think that was a good thing. See? They’re smiling! Uh, oh. That wasn’t good. What’s his name? It’s something with a long A or O in it. What is that guy’s relation to the little guy? How old is the girl? What’s going on?!” Just trust me on this one- it’s not a good idea.) Now we’re at our hotel room and everyone is watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives– one of Arwen’s favorite Food Network shows.
See you tomorrow!
