We made an overnight stop in Savannah Georgia on our way to South Carolina last Sunday. We didn't cover much ground, but what we did see was worth it!
If you can read the tiny print, there is a photo of the plaque that states where the first herbal pharmacy in America was built - Amazing piece of history!
We splurged on a treat and ate lunch at The Pirates House a few blocks from the waterfront. It's been open since 1753 and once served members of ships that would come into town. We chose the buffet of southern food items. I really must learn how to make the flat green beans with pepper. I can't get enough of them!
We had an amazing week. Sushi and pedicures for the mama's, a shopping trip for new clothes for my girls and a date night with the 4 adults at the golf club. - all gifts given to us from the Whitehouse's. A true blessing and delight. We are so humbled and thankful for how God uses others to meet our needs and bless us.
My favorite spot was the oldest cemetery in South Carolina. All the graveyards downtown are on various church grounds, which means the churches are very old as well. I love this idea of history being placed promentley in view, showing respect to many who came before us.
There is also a plaque that tells us of a man (Josiah Flagg) who was the first native born American to make dentistry his life's work - AND the first to carry American dental work to a foreign land!
I was very blessed this week. Blessed to reconnect with a friend I didn't know when, of if, I would ever see again. And blessed because she chose to spoil me this week with lots of love and generosity. I'm thankful to God for the many gifts and blessings He gives us on this trip. Friendships, experiences and needs met.
Till next week,
