Tour de Coop
We had such a great time riding the trolley around Savannah all afternoon, visiting six different backyard chicken coops. One of them was even on our block, so we got to wave to our house as we went by.
A side perk of visiting the chicken coops was getting to admire several lovely gardens.
The tour started at Southern Pine Company, which reclaims materials from tearing down houses and buildings then reuses them to restore and build other structures. We had a lot of fun wandering through their huge warehouse full of all kinds of interesting "junk."
All in all, it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. They had chicken trivia games on the trolley, with raffle tickets and prizes being passed out. All the kids won something. Then when we returned to Southern Pine we actually won a raffle for a lovely, wonderful, unfiltered bottle of non-kosher olive oil. I was so happy! I was so sad. :( I'm sure we'll find someone who will cherish as much as we would have, could we have used it. :)
That's all for now!
