We spent yesterday exploring Savannah. After taking the ferry boat across the Savannah River to the other side, we bought tickets for a 90 minute trolley tour.
The tour took us around Savannah and the tour guide/bus driver told us all about the city and it’s history.
There are 22 squares in Savannah and I felt the need to take pictures of most of them. Not an easy feat when the bus is moving.
I really liked the Spanish Moss than hung from all the trees. It had almost a creepy feeling to it, especially at night, but it was cool.
We drove by Paula Dean’s restaurant. I feel like my cholesterol jumped just looking at it.
After the tour, we had lunch on River Street and then parted ways with my mom and Marty who were attending a wedding. Jason and spent the evening exploring River Street and City Market. Jason really wanted to try the Chatham Artillery Punch, which is basically a bunch of liquors mixed with champagne. I got a Bloody Mary.
You are allowed to walk around with your drinks if they are in plastic cups under 16 oz, so that’s just what we did. We went into a bunch of stores and art galleries in City Market.
Then I made the really stupid decision of wanting sushi for dinner. Honestly, I wanted pizza from a pizza place that we kept walking by, but I was trying to be healthier and we ended up with crappy sushi that made my stomach hurt. Lesson learned.
We called it a night sometime around 10 or 11 and went back to our room, woke up the this morning, dropped my mom and Marty at the airport and drove back to Atlanta. A very short trip, but it was fun.
