Lunch is served family style at large tables set for 10 people. There were at least 20 bowls of southern comfort food on the table. We had meatloaf, fried chicken, roast with potatoes and carrots, green beans, mac and cheese, baked beans, cole slaw, cabbage, collard greens, rutabagas, Lima beans, black eyed peas, white rice, red rice with sausage, beets, cucumbers, squash, sweet potatoes, cornbread stuffing, biscuits, cornbread, and sweet tea.
You sit at your table, eat as much as you want, take your dirty dishes to the kitchen and then pay
After lunch I did a little shopping and then we hit the road to Augusta to see Josh and his girlfriend, Shannon. Along the way we took a detour through Statesboro to see Georgia Southern University. It was a very nice campus! The football stadium is under renovation as GSU has moved up to play Division 1 football. Another stadium checked off the list!
Dinner was at a place on Broad Street in August called The Pizza Joint. The food was great, but the company was even better. We had not seen Josh since March. He looks fantastic, the best shape of his life. He told us since tuition reimbursement has been reinstated by the government, he's going to start an online program through Oregon State University to major in Fisheries and Wildlife Science. When his enlistment is up he can finish the degree in Georgia and hopefully get a job with the DNR. We are excited for him to get back to school. Now I'm counting the days until we see him again in September when Jake has a football game at Reinhardt University just north of Atlanta.
We are on our way back to Savannah now, and will head south to St. Augustine tomorrow!
