Today I'm sharing Project Life 2017, Week 11. I am excited beyond words that I have followed through with this project...taken enough pictures to either put together a 1- or 2-page spread, and kept track of our week through note taking and putting words to journal cards or on to photos.
This week was packed full of goodness. Melanie and the kids visited for a very short overnighter but man, so good. Jeff and I enjoyed an exciting Charlie Daniels Band concert. We met my brother Rich for lunch in Jacksonville, we visited the Catty Shack Rescue Sanctuary, and of course, the food!
I used the journal prompt I WANT TO REMEMBER as my starting off point for each journal spot. Everything I want to remember about the week. Our surrogate family, Melanie and the kids (Mark was missing - he had a temporary duty) drove into Charleston for spring break and then stopped into Savannah to see us. It. has. been. so. long. The Charlie Daniels Band concert was at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville. Jeff has been singing a couple of Charlie Daniels' songs as long as I've known him. He even was instrumental in getting the boys hooked. The band put on a really good show and Charlie Daniels still can play the fiddle.
The food. The Metro Diner, a Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives episode highlighted this breakfast spot and the food did not disappoint. Rich took us to Burrito Gallery. Jeff just had some nachos but I had a salad with Bleu Cheese and a Tarragon dressing. The combination spoke volumes to my taste buds.
And then there was V Pizzeria. Oh my! A-mazing pizza! This place rivals our Savannah own, Vinnie Van Go Go's easily.
Each night before turning in we threw open the sliding glass door and leaned out onto the balcony overlooking the St John's River with breathtaking night time view only to wake up each morning to watch the sun come up and partake of a morning time view of pink, orange and red hues on bridge and horizon. Beautiful.
This place, the Catty Shack Wildlife Rescue Sanctuary, was another highlight of our short weekend trip. They give an informative and engaging tour of the sanctuary, why they are there, what they do, and all the real life statistics on big cats and the gorgeous catty's they've rescued and care for.
