The girls asked to go to this small aquarium on the campus of the University of Georgia’s marine education center. It was small, but focused on the local habitat. It was beautifully maintained and featured a touch tank.
The grounds had several natural trails.
It was a lovely way to experience Georgia’s wetlands, but bring your big spray. The mosquitoes feasted on us.

I ate my way up and down the East Coast. I don’t have a bucket list of things to do, mine contains things to eat.
We were meandering through downtown Savannah and the morning was hot and I was hungry.
I’m always hungry.
In the vicinity of Savannah College of Art and Design, I noticed this ice cream shop and soda fountain.
It didn’t open until 11, and it was 10:45. People were lining up outside.
By the time we ate our ice cream, the line was out the door and every table was full.
On the way back from Savannah to our motel the other night, we discovered a wildlife sanctuary.
We started driving through and a tree was down so we only made in half way before we had to turn around.
And for our gator:
While in Savannah, we took the girls for Japanese since they both love sushi. It was an all-you-could-eat restaurant, which meant every time you finished something you could order another dish.
My daughter ordered so much sushi and appetizers that she forgot to order an entree. And she tried to teach her companion to use chopsticks. She wasn’t a good teacher.
They had a large variety of bubble tea. Gayle got strawberry. I got melon. It was our 16-year-old’s first bubble tea. She didn’t like or dislike it.
Personally I love tapioca in every form.
We arrived in Savannah about 4 pm last night and checked into The Inn at Mulberry Grove. The prettiest motel I’ve ever seen.
For less than $50/night, I finally got a decent cup of coffee.
But I digress…
Last night we went downtown and ended up getting New York pizza got dinner at Vinnie Van GoGos. Wonderful artsy pun. I had a local blonde beer: Tybee Isle Blonde.
And then we visited the River Street area and bought sundresses and met a man who made palm roses.
