Places to Go (Vacation) - Savannah, GA, Part III - Oatland Island Wildlife Center. The Second Stop on Our Roadtrip of the South.


On our last day in Savannah, we braved the 90+ degree heat and spent the morning at Oatland Island Wildlife Center. I must say, this place was pretty awesome. A trail meanders through the property, which includes a boardwalk through wetlands, interspersed along the trail are various animal habitats. We saw alligators, deer, wolves, a fox, a (sleeping) cougar, a crane, bison, and various birds. So beautiful. The kids loved running on the shaded paths and trying to find lizards. Dan and I loved the beautiful scenery, especially the spanish moss everywhere. The entire loop is quite long (I think the visitors' center guide told us it was about 1.5 miles), but luckily the shade (and water bottles) kept us going. Plus, we all were pretty excited about the lack of crowds. The kids fell asleep as soon as we we got back on the road, which made the 2.5 hour drive perfect for us adults. NEXT (and final) STOP, CHARLESTON, SC!!


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!! TODAY IS T'S 2 YEAR BIRTHDAY, which just seems crazy, but in a good way. They really do grow up so fast.


*My post on making sunprints is in a contest, please click here to vote for me!!!


*Truths for mature humans. Funny.

*Lovely paintings.

*Is it a magazine or a collection of wall prints? I love this idea, I want a copy.

*I guess we need to learn to embrace the heat.

*If you live in the DC area and aren't busy busy this Sunday, a flash mob is scheduled at 1:30 in Old Town Alexandria, Waterfront and Marina near Torpedo Factory (in front of the eating hall)

More Info:
This is for Melanie Wiggins and Molly Norrbom's senior project at H-B Woodlawn! We are having a flash mob (surprise choreographed dance party) on the Waterfront and would love for you to join us! The song is "Bang on the Drum All Day" by Todd Rundgren (to practice - link to the video here and use the first minute). The video explains the dance steps and timing.

Invite everyone you know and everyone you don't know, too - friends, neighbors, family, etc. Come a little bit early so you can casually wander around and blend in with the crowd.

At 1:30 the music will start playing and Melanie will begin dancing awkwardly by herself. Then a few others (you know who you are) will join in. When the singer says "everybody" and starts singing, everyone else should jump in! When the song ends (after about a minute) we will nonchalantly blend back in with the crowd.

So I didn't intend to dress T and Dan like twins, but I'm so glad that it worked out that way. Yay fate!!
