Day 7: Old Savannah and New Smyrna

Well how can I tell you about our day? We had planned to drive through the night so we could be to FL by morning, but after driving a few hours we decided it’d be best to just sleep.

Once we started driving again in the morning we realized we could be in Savannah just after noon, so we decided to take a pit stop in Old Savannah for lunch. I’d been there 11 years ago and loved it so I’d been talking it up to Tawny and thankfully when we pulled into town she fell in love with it too!

The cobblestone streets on the river with colorful storefronts were a beautiful sight for sore eyes. Up and down the riverwalk, we settled on a place called ‘Spanky’s’ for lunch. It was recommended by two locals, and we would now recommend it too. :). It had great pizza and burgers…..and you must try the potato things….forgetting the name, but they were GOOD. Tawny bought some flowers that an old man made out of palm leaves. It was cute.

We then headed towards our FL destination of New Smyrna Beach, where my brother Tyler and my friend Sue both live! When we pulled into town, we met my brother and picked up some Chinese take-out with Sue. She then took us to a house she’d gotten us for the week, which is literally ON the beach! Walking out onto our huge balcony overlooking the Atlantic coast, a full moon glistened off of the crashing waves below while a light breeze wrapped us in welcome. Need I expound on how I felt at that moment? 😉

This house has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 large decks, a cabana with a swing, a billiards room and a hot tub out in the freshest of air. This is SUCH a blessing for us. We are definitely grateful, even more so when you say your evening prayers by the light if the moon. Amen.

(ESV) Psalms 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

Psalms 139:9-10 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.
