We spent Sunday evening, all of Monday and then most of Tuesday walking. On Tuesday morning, we did check out of the hotel (after breakfast and a visit to the fitness center) and drove to Bonaventure Cemetery. After a quick-ish visit around the cemetery, we drove to Tybee Island. I have an entire post about how we kept everything relatively cheap, but I’ll at least mention that we took food for lunches (for when we were traveling during lunchtime) and ate sandwiches at the pavilion on Tybee Island.
When we were leaving, we found a lighthouse, and took some photos before escaping the heat of Georgia to drive down to the heat of Florida.
(I forgot to mention last week that we went to a place called Wet Willie’s for drinks. We happened upon this place to discover they served my favorites – daiquiris. We were thankfully within walking distance (we left my car in the garage for 48 hours. It was awesome.) The drinks were incredible, and we hit up the place twice. I could go for a daiquiri right now, in fact.)
We arrived in Jacksonville around 3:00 on Tuesday afternoon, and within 10 minutes, we were in the pool. The temperatures kept reaching 100 or more, and we were miserable in that heat.
I think one of the funniest things from that day was when the husband realized that we have nephews. My stepsister has two sons, and I had never met the youngest one – now 9-years-old – until this week. The boys are 14 and 9, and were a lot of fun to hang around. There was a lot of swimming on Tuesday and then a drive over to the Navy base so we could walk on the beach.
