Day 5 found us waking up in Savannah, Georgia. We actually had rooms just down the hallway, but were able to get adjoining rooms for the nights after that. The rooms were nice and again this hotel had complimentary breakfast and a pool. It also had a coin operated laundry room for guests, which was used often by us.
Back to the hotel for the kiddos to swim and relax before the next full day.
Day 6 was full of adventures. After reading through some of our material from the visitor's center, we decided on a few things that we all really wanted to do. The first stop was to be the Tybee Lighthouse on Tybee Island. It was sprinkling again this day, but at least we were able to be inside.
The lighthouse ended up being one of our children's favorite stops. It was worth our time. We were all getting hungry, so we set out to find a kid friendly restaurant. We were suggested a couple places from the volunteer at the lighthouse, so Casie checked out reviews of those places. We were actually in the parking lot of one of them, but after seeing the prices, we decided to try something else. She found another restaurant that was located on our way off of the island, so we decided to give that one a try.
Coco's was a typical restaurant on the water. Located along the canal, it was brightly colored and decorated with tropical/fish decor. We were greeted and seated in an empty restaurant and by a waitress who was not happy that we were there. There were a few people in the bar area, but in the actual restaurant area, we were the only ones in there. It was nice for our large group, but it caused us to wonder why our waitress was a little short with us upon realizing that there were 9 children and 4 adults. After getting seated we decided that we needed to leave one of our Almond Joy candy bars with her, because she clearly needed a little joy added to her life.
So, we were all full and left the restaurant. Not having any other plans we decided to stop at this little parking lot that had a trail that lead to the water. We thought we would just check it out for a short bit.
After that stop I suggested a state park that wasn't too far away. So, we headed that direction. It was later so the nature center was closed, but we were able to walk on one of the trails, which is where we learned some interesting facts about the spanish moss trees. The children enjoyed the walk too, looking out for snakes, birds, seeing more fiddler crabs, seeing hermit crabs and their tracks, and just enjoying a lovely walk.
