Spring Break 2011

Last year for Spring Break we took a road trip down to North Carolina and had so much fun we decided to do it again and this time we made it all the way to Savannah, GA. On the way down we stopped in Virginia to visit cousins Sandy and Rob and their two little ones, Cory and Kyle. Roxy came along as far as Virginia and then spent the middle of the week with Sandy and Rob's two basset hounds (romping around their 10 acres of land) and then we picked her up on the way back north.

We ended up spending two nights in Savannah, a night in Charleston and a night in Hilton Head. We enjoyed some great southern food and wonderful weather in the high 70's most of the trip. Here are a few photos from along the way.

Here's a fountain in Savannah dyed green for St. Patrick's day.

Another fountain in one of Savannah's many squares.A sight along the waterfront.

This is what you do in Myrtle Beach - mini golf.
Here's where you hang out when not mini-golfing - the beach.

This is along the waterfront in Charleston, SC, we even saw dolphins right off this pier!
This was our one alligator sighting. It was at a historic plantation outside Charleston.
More wildlife at the plantation.
Here I am having a good time on Hilton Head Island.
Here are a couple scenes from a fascinating place right outside Savannah, the Bonaventure Cemetery.


  1. For us people in your "past"...since you KNOW we're still near freezing at night, rain records breaking, hale ev other day, trees up here barely beginning to bloom.... I read this post as, "YOU are SHOWING OFF." (and I would too.....if I could) Sounds like a fabulous spring trip. Perfect.
