Six Weeks Five Days

In six weeks and five days Dave and I will be on vacation. Our last vacation was seven years ago and it was our honeymoon so we are long overdue.

If you read my post a few days ago you know that after reading last months bookclub book my desire to visit Savannah was re-ignited. Earlier this week I did some major research and found a hotel 10 minutes from the Historic District for a very reasonable price. I calculated the amount of gas that would be spent if we were to take Dave's Explorer, and then I put together an itinary for the days we would be there. Once I had evertything calculated I went to Dave and gave him the rundown. I think he was a little surprised at what all we could do for the cost.

Even though Savannah Georgia is not on the top of Dave's list of places to visit he put in his request for the week of July 19th thru the 25th off and it was approved today. I have been fighting sinus issues all week so I left work at lunch time and when I got home I made our hotel reservation and then I booked a few of the tours we wanted to do. On our list is:

- Trolley Tour of the Historic District
- Savannah Civil War Walk
- Ghost & Gravestones Tour
- Tybee Island Lighthouse
- Captain Dereks Dolphin Adventure
- Bonaventure Cemetery
- Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
- Forsyth Park Fountain
- The Waving Girl Statue
- Wormsloe Historic
- Mercer Williams House (House used in Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil)
- Owen-Thomas House
- The Pirate House Resturant
- The Lady and Sons Resturant (Paula Deans)

I am sooooo excited about everything I have planned. Dave and I both enjoy American History so I think the Civil War Walk is going to be really fun. Dave and I are also HUGE fans of the SciFi networks show Ghost Hunters so when I read that the Ghost and Gravestones tour is the only Haunted tour that takes you into the Sorrel Weed House that Ghost Hunters visited and confirmed to be haunted I knew it was the tour for us. Now anyone that knows me knows how much I love Paula Dean which means there is no way I could go to Savannah and not eat at her resturant The Lady and Sons.

Now I just have to make it through the next six weeks, I just hope it goes as fast as the past six have gone.
