Instead of spewing my annoyance for all the garbage I’m mired in today, I’m going to write my report on “What I Did on My Summer Vacation”.
It was the kids’ first vacation, so they were excited and really and truly had a good time. I’m the worst about going on vacation because it stresses me out. I’m a planner, and it annoys me when my greatest laid plans go awry. One thing I did discover is that I can still parallel park like a CHAMP and I should carry a compass with me no matter where I go. I’m easily turned around and can walk for blocks before realizing it. Niiiice.
The pictures I posted earlier were spot on, except the master bedroom did have a king sized bed, not some shitty queen sized bed for ants. Having 4 bedrooms is crazy pants. The full kitchen came in handy for not eating out for every meal and there is seriously so. much. room. for. activities. The best part for me was the little steps to get into the bed. I’m short and after long, hot days of walking my bum knee was pretty much worthless. PRO TIP: Don’t eat chocolate covered pretzels in your vacation bed. Or any bed for that matter:
Much like my last vacation to Savannah, I couldn’t get a dolphin picture to save my life. This was the best I could do:
We went with Captain Mike’s this time and saved so much money. Lower cost and better tour than the one you can get on River Street. We followed shrimping boats, so the dolphin were plentiful and happy–we even saw babies! JUMPING DOLPHIN BABIES OMG. Everyone seems to love the restaurant that’s at the dock, but we went on a shitty day. As in our waitress was awful (didn’t put our order in, so three tables that were seated after we got food before we did), and the cook was awful (how do you not know how to cook seafood when your restaurant is right on the ocean?)
One nerdy little place that I love is the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. That’s where I bought my copy of Tough Boris last time and this time we picked up a copy of Stories of Mermaids, amongst other goodies. The best pictures of the kids were taken there:
The Pirates’ House was by far the best dining we had on our trip. It was good food at inflated touristy prices. Everywhere else was inflated touristy pricing and mediocre food. AND, believe it or not, they had PIRATES:
Oh, and the manager in the gift shop recognized my old school Penny Arcade shirt, so +1 for him. We did other touristy things, but I didn’t get a chance to hit the Moon River Brewery and I had no desire to got over to Paula Deen’s (good food but pricey and annoying hot outdoor waiting). Oh, and I forgot to share this:
