Travels in the South

Thank you my friends for returning to our series of Travels in the South.  Today we are highlighting some odds and ends of our visit with Fozziemom and Fozziedad.   During their visit, they and mom/dad went to Tybee Island, Georgia.

Of course Tybee Island is maybe 15-20 miles from Savannah.  And Savannah has the River Street where there are LOADS of stores.  You know ladies – they like to shop.

This is one store in the picture with Fozziemom.  Do you notice anything on her head?  Besides the hat… keep going up.  She was wearing her crown like the princess she is – snorts with piggy laughter.  Mom saw the tiara in the store and had to put it on Fozziemom’s head.  Cute huh?  I think personally that every woman should have their crown that they secretly wear around the house when no one is looking… my mom does – but don’t tell her I said that okay.

And of course during their time in Tybee Island, they were making a movie.  This one is called Baywatch and it has Dwayne Johnson in it – you know the Rock.  And of course, he is kind to the eyes and mom and Fozziemom say he was groovy.  Shaking my piggy head.  I don’t get it.

But one night when everyone came back from dinner, guess who was sleeping in Fozziemom’s bed?  You got it – THE ROCK.  We were amazed too and couldn’t believe it.  Or maybe he was there because Fozziemom kept trying to track him down to throw herself at him?  Anyway, she found him in her bed and slept with him!!  Mom said she would have been smiling too if she found the Rock in her bed.  I wonder why she’s never that excited to find me in her bed?  Confused I am.

And of course, trust me.  We can’t leave the island without visiting the Tybee Island lighthouse.  The Tybee Island lighthouse was established in 1961 and the light is maintained by the Coast Guard.   The lighthouse has 178 stairs to get to the observation deck with the light.

Everyone went to the Tybee Island lighthouse and while mom/dad observed from the bottom, Fozziemom and Fozziedad got brave and walked to the top – all 178 stairs.
