Hilton Head Vacation Day 3

Tuesday started out very early. We got up at 7:00, got ready, and were out the door by 8:00. We had to be in Savannah by 9:30 am, to get in line at Paula Deen's, the Lady and Sons restaurant. You have to be in line at 9:30, to get a reservation for lunch or dinner. We got there at 9:15, and I quickly got in line. There were only about 75 other people in line, so I knew it wouldn't be a problem getting a reservation. We were able to get a 11:00 reservation, which was perfect. We had about an hour to walk around Savannah, so we walked down by the river, and then around down town near the restaurant. We were back in front of the restaurant at 10:45, and our name was called pretty quickly after that. For lunch, they have a buffet, or you can order a entree. We each got the buffet, and everything on it was delicious: Fried chicken, baked chicken, collard greens, green beans, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, rice and gravy, yams! For dessert we had a choice of banana pudding, gooey butter cake, or peach cobbler. I chose the gooey butter cake and Andrew got the banana pudding. Both were amazing! After lunch we went into the gift shop, and Paula Deen's son Jamie was there! He was such a nice guy, and so down to earth. It was such a treat to be able to meet him. We left Savannah right after that, and prayed that the rain would hold off, so we could spend some time at the pool when we got back. Well, the weather was perfect for most of the afternoon, except for a 30 minutes period where it rained. But the sun came back out, and we stayed at the pool till almost 6:00. After several hours at the pool, we were both ready to eat again. (Have you noticed that food is the main event of each day?) Dinner was at another local restaurant, Roast Fish and Cornbread. We had about a 45 minute wait, and again, should have waited till about 8:00 before we showed up. Dinner was very good. Andrew got the fish tacos and I got a Sweet Bird Sub (Turkey). For dessert we got a tropical parfait. It was fresh fruit with whipped coconut milk. YUMMY!! Again, I would highly recommend this place.
Here are some other pictures from today:

We had a great day, but looking forward to doing nothing the rest of the week.
