BRAVE THE RED FRIDAY. We all know what that means! Everyone donned themselves with our very red, BRAVE THE RED T-shirts produced by Nine Line, a veteran owned and operated company.
The Sons of the American Revolution gave us a lesson on the history and development of the Flag.
They had the attention of everyone in their seats. Who knew?!
First stop out and about today was Byrd’s Cookie Factory.
After suiting up for the tour, we were approved to enter the facilities, but NOT take photos. Sorry.
Once we toured the factory, we visited their cookie bar for samples.
Byrd’s cookies are famous for their very small round cookies, sold by the pound – in all kinds of exotic flavors, like key lime or pink lemonade - which you will find in stores, gift shops and even on airplanes.
What an interesting gift shop! After bagging up all our purchases, we were on our way to lunch at Corleone’s.
Their chandeliers were most interesting.
Now it’s time to walk off those Byrd’s cookies and lunch. So downtown we went to shop and take a carriage ride.
Our ride around town took us past many of the sites we have already seen. I think our driver was a bit frustrated hoping to tell us about places to go and things to see and we had already done them! RiVoli Rallies is the BEST! One of the most notable places we saw was Debi’s Restaurant, the diner where Jenny worked in “Forest Gump.”
We finished our day at River Street for shopping and a dinner cruise.
Dinner consisted of prime rib, fish pork, shrimp and grits, squash, vegetable medley, salad and I’m sure I missed some things. After dinner there was dancing
And out on the deck, there is Kay and Linda shenanigans going on.
While dancing was going on INSIDE the ship on the dance floor, Krazy Kay was giving dance lessons OUTSIDE on the deck.
Once Krazy Kay found out she was entertaining everyone INSIDE the ship, she took a bow.
She certainly was born to entertain!
To top the evening off were fireworks.
There is nothing better than a night topped off with fireworks!
