The bridge

We start driving Saturday morning day of the wedding and we are about 5 hours away.  My sister-in-law is getting married, and she's the type that loves to be the center of attention but will never admit that she loves it because it ruins her image.  So we get to Bridezilla's wedding about 3 hours early and there's nothing to do. So we go try to find a campsite, because we're poor and it's cheap.  We find out that it's an RV campsite, but you can set up a tent amongst the RV's.  Not quite what we were expecting but it was the best we had.  So we set up the tent on the grassiest part, and amongst the ant hills and we get done about an hour before the wedding. We were hot, sweaty, and running a touch late so we split hoping the tent wouldn't blow away.

The wedding was on the beach, blah blah blah.

We get back around 10 pm after all the activities and it's dark. I didn't realize just how many roots were sticking up from the ground until I tripped and sprained my ankle.  We didn't realize that it was Harley week in Savannah, we were greeted with a woman and her husband warning us not to leave anything outside our tent, because the monster will take it.   We find out about 15 minutes later it was a huge racoon, apparently haunting the camp ground for years.  I realized, too, about 10 minutes into talking to these new friens of ours that my feet itch like CRAZY!!! I stood on an ant hill and they were pissed.

  I probably had 25 ant bites the ones between the toes were the worst.  It was hot, muggy, humid.... kill me.  I tried to sleep but it was awful, between the heat and the ants I was up all night.  boo.

Eventually when the sun got high enough to justify waking people up I did, I didn't want to be alone in my misery.  We cooked some breakfast, mmm pancakes with peanut butter and syrup. 

River Street here we come!!   Pretty much I just wanted to see the candy shop, it was every bit as exciting as I remember.  I love candy, a sweet tooth from hell.  God would truly hate me if I ever got diabetes.  There were pralines, and taffy, rock candy, and caramels.  Every candy you could think of, they had.  It was beautiful.  We saw some sights, and Washington's guns.  Ya know after reading this, I'm a fat kid.   That's ok, I like what I like.  The sights were neat but in all honesty I was tired I don't remember much of them.  Anywho... we got home, and that's that.
