Road Trip - Day 26 Savannah, Georgia - Washington, D.C.

Day 26 - January 26th  Savannah, Georgia - Washington, D.C.


Another day on the road with little to report. The drive took us an hour longer because we stopped in a couple of places on the way. 

It was great to have the time to shoot the breeze together - recalling some of the funniest and/or moving times in our life together over the last 22 years; basking in the appreciation of all those people who continue to enrich our lives - our families and friends; and making plans on how we can further help and support our wonderful team members to enjoy even more successes on their journey towards freedom. These conversations were interspersed with some great music from the 60's and 70's - in particular - the Carpenters. One song seems to encapsulate how we are feeling: 'Sing'. We belted out the words, which made us feel even more joy! Here are the lyrics, for those of you who remember it (and those who don't):

                                                                    "Sing"
Sing, sing a song
Sing out loud
Sing out strong
Sing of good things not bad
Sing of happy not sad.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

Sing, sing a song
Let the world sing along
Sing of love there could be
Sing for you and for me.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

Here's the link to the song on Youtube:   SING    If you listen to it, maybe you can picture us joining in!

When you are traveling on I-95 N in South Carolina, you can't possibly miss the 100 or so signs advertising 'South of the Border'!

We are living proof that billboards work because we found that we just HAD to stop to see what it was all about - tucked on the border between the two Carolinas. Though a bit tacky for us, there was an interesting Reptile Lagoon which featured some of our recent friends - pythons, alligators, and crocodiles. They were interesting and fun to see - especially as there were barriers between them and us!!! 




The view that accompanied us for most of the way (double lane, skirted by trees) began to change when we saw suggestions of snow when we hit North Carolina.



So, now we know we are heading towards home!  We arrived in Maryland (just 20 minutes or so away from Washington D.C. on the subway line) to see some impressive mounds of snow - probably about 2 inches in height, so we were very lucky with the weather while driving, thank goodness. 

We are spending the next two days visiting the sites of the American capital, which will round off the historical parts of our tour.
