I don’t know why but Mississippi has always been somewhere I’ve wanted to visit. It could have been the scenes imagined from reading Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn as a child – or perhaps the more modern Grisham novels providing fodder for my imagination of a genteel southern setting.
This is the story of a fantastic 8 day week!
Our week started on Monday with St Patrick’s Day in Savannah, Georgia. For the last several weeks, our numerous friends in Savannah have been touting their celebrations as the second biggest in the country so we were excited to revisit a city that we enjoyed, catch up with friends we had made and let our hair down for a day.
I’m not sure if I completely agree that Savannah’s celebrations are larger than Chicago or Boston – but the spirit in the city was definitely festive, despite it being a miserable and rainy day. An ongoing joke at Remember Forever is my control over the weather, however after it rained on the St Patrick’s Day parade (just two weeks after raining all through New Orleans Mardi-Gras) I am starting to doubt my abilities.
When I left you last week, the mood was pretty grim. I’ve received quite a few “hang in there” emails over the last week and I do appreciate everyone’s encouragement.
Jacksonville made it very easy for us to gain some perspective and a little bit of positivity for two very good reasons. The first was, we had made some wonderful friends while swimming with the dolphins in Tortola (British Virgin Islands) a year and a half ago – and they live in Jacksonville. The second reason is that Jacksonville is less than an hour from Historic St Augustine. If you haven’t heard of St Augustine, this is probably one of the most photographic destinations on the planet. St Augustine has a pirate ship.
