This morning we packed up our belongings and headed to the car. Our goal was to make it to Savannah, Georgia with enough time to explore the city and take a swim in the hotel pool. The ride was less than four hours which seemed like a breeze compared to yesterday. We stopped once for gas and another for a restroom/ stretch break.
While we drove, I called an appliance store in Israel and spoke with a nice salesman about all the appliances we are planning to purchase within the next month. I provided our measurements and what we were looking for, and he sent me a whatsapp with pictures of his recommended appliances. Although the salesman spoke English, it was still hard to understand through his accent. The conversation made me a little nervous about our forthcoming lives in a new country.
After we checked into to a our new hotel and got settled in, we took a walk to the water front near our hotel. The area is filled with cute restaurants and souvenir shops. We enjoyed walking along the water, seeing the boats and experiencing a new city. It was very hot and humid, so we stopped for some ice cream on our way back to the hotel.
A quick change into bathing suits, and we were off to the pool. The kids had fun swimming and cooling off, although it did start drizzling a few minutes into our swim. Dinner, showers and bed as usual. Tomorrow we plan to drive all the way to our final destination.
