Where I stayed
Skidaway Island State Park

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

We made the short 100 mile drive from Jekyll Island to Skidaway Island State Park ( yet, another barrier island! ) , set up and headed out the the Crab Shack on Tybee Island.  ( which is....you guessed it, another barrier island.)  If I am being honest with myself and you the whole reason for our return visit to this area is because of the Crab Shack.  It may be a bit on the touristy side, something we tend to avoid, but it is a very unique dining experience!  I will let the pictures and their web-site do the talking....
http://www.thecrabshack.com/  It is always fun when someplace you have visited before remains as you remember it, too often this is not the case!

Now that we have the Crab Shack out of our system it was time for some sightseeing.  We spent a very enjoyable day in Savannah.  Starting off with a trolley tour of the historic district followed by a leisurely stroll through the same area.  This city was laid out by General Oglethorpe, seems this guy was all over this part of the country.  It was laid out in a series of equal sized squares which contained dozens of parks. Sixteen of these parks still remain and give the historic district a very different feel from other cities dating  to this time. 

We also spent a very nice day in the nearby town of Pooler taking in the sights at the Mighty 8th Air Force Museum.  If you are a fan of military history this museum should be placed on your not to be missed list!  We didn't  visit last time we were here and I can only assume that it is because it hadn't been built yet  - it is not like me to miss a military museum!   Rather than sharing with you the fascinating history of this group I will just share a link to the museum:  http://mightyeighth.org/

We had one last day at Skidaway Island State Park and Ken used it to go golfing.  When he had finished he picked me up and we headed back to Savannah for one last wander around the historic district, really the best way to take in the sites!   Savannah with all it's history and charm really is a special place and one that we will certainly be visiting again in the future!
