We were in South Carolina and we were going to my dad's cousin George's house. We were driving and the road turned to sand. We got to the driveway so we went down it. There was a hill, 9% grade, filled with potholes. So we went slowly and made our way down the hill. We got parked and ate supper. The next day, George's daughter Eliora got back mid afternoon from school. When she got back we turned on the hose and put it on the trampoline, and jumped on the trampoline.
At night, we played card games. Me and Eliora caught a lizard and made a habitat for it. After three nights, we left, but the hill was a lot harder going up than down. But we made it!
When we went to Savannah it was St Patrick's day weekend. So the first thing we did was we went to up to the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. That was really cool. The ship museum had lots of models of all the ships. Then we walked up to the harbor and saw the US Coast Guard tall ship the Eagle. The harbor was really crowded because there was a big party for St. Patty's Day. Then we left the harbor and walked around the city and got some lunch.
Then we walked back to the harbor and watched the tall ship leave. First they got a tugboat to turn them around, then they opened the sails and went upriver. But before that happened, a container ship came downriver and slowed the Eagle's leaving. There are lots more pictures here.
Then we walked across town and went to a book store. We looked for Nathaniel Bowditch's book of General Navigation. Then we walked back and went home.
