My plan for Wednesday was to visit a state park and another
plantation.  I woke up, took a walk, ate
breakfast and just didn’t feel like going out. 
So, I hung around the campground. 
I figured I’d go Thursday.  
Thursday brought with it a day full of rain!!! 
Plan “B” commenced!  I broke down
camp and headed to the mall for a long over-do pedicure!   It was
still early and most store gates were down, so I toured the mall
leisurely.  Just about 10:00, I happened
by an interesting place called “Nuts About Savannah” where a gentleman was
opening the gates and said hello.  I
asked if he had chai and with his affirmative response, I told him I’d be back
in a little bit…giving him a chance to get going!  I returned about 15 minutes later receiving a
full and cheerful welcome.  My visit
turned into a great Bright Spot
First, Phillip remembered my inquiry and told his wife Dolores.  She was ready for me!  As I went to check out, we struck up a
conversation and when I told her about my journey, she said she had many wonderful things in her life to share.  She and Phillip were
recently married, her son Jonathan just got married and her daughter Amber was
recently engaged!!!  Amber also serves in
the US Navy…thank you, Amber!
Dolores shared about her and Phillip’s intention for the
store to be a place for socializing and relaxation and that would offer people
healthy snack options and eclectic gift ideas. 
In my opinion, they are a big success. 
As we continued to chat, she revealed a beautiful plan of hers to write
a book entitled, “I’m Perfect Because I Choose to Be”.   How
cool is that?  Dolores, I look forward to reading your book!
     I caught a movie…The 2nd Best Marigold Hotel and
it was really good!  Afterwards, I had an
early dinner and went back to the campground around 5:30 and spent the evening
reading and listening to the rain.  All
of the sudden, about 9:00, I remembered that I had prepaid online tickets to
see 2 bluegrass bands in Savannah for….5:30PM!!!!!   What a bummer!  It was the first day of their annual music
festival!  Oh, well, maybe next year.
