The title of this post seems to be the phrase down here in the South. Well, at least in Savannah! Also, everyone keeps calling me Maam. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?? Do I look like a Maam to you?? Ugh……….so depressing…….
Anyways, J was mean and made me drive half of the 4 hours it took us to get from Charlotte to Savannah.
Haha, I’m just kidding. Well, about the mean part, not about the making me drive part!
Once again, I think I did pretty darn good job picking our hotel…..
Beautiful, no? I swear the whole city is this beautiful!
Our room wasn’t quite ready yet so we immediately set out looking for a place to eat. The hotel recommended a diner that had been featured in the movie, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, called Clary’s.
As soon as we sat down we knew this wasn’t really the place for us. It was total old school, heavy diner food. But we felt rude getting up to leave after we had already sat down so we toughed it out. Not what I was hoping for our first day in Savannah, but oh well – we didn’t let it ruin our day!
Once our bellies were full of heavy food, we checked into the hotel and headed out to tour the city. We needed to walk that food off!! So we walked towards the River, and ran into this:
Lady & Sons!!!!!!!!! I heart Ms. Paula Deen!
I have read that the wait to get into this place is ridic. There wasn’t much of a line yet since we passed by in between lunch and dinner. But they even have misters set up outside to cool off the people waiting and complimentary ice water. J stole some water on our walk by since we were both seriously melting from the heat.
Right next to the restaurant is Paula Deen’s store. You know we had to go in.
The store is nothing special, basically just a tourist trap. It was fun to look around but we didn’t buy anything.
We walked down to River Street for some more touristy (yes, that’s a word) viewing.
It’s the cutest street (on the river, of course). Check out the trolley tracks!
Of course we had to stop into the old fashioned candy store!
It was so hot out we rolled with the ice cream instead of candy.
It’s vacation, right??
The ice cream ended up being our dinner, as we never really got hungry again after that heavy lunch from Clary’s (and the ice cream!). It all evens out in the end, I guess.
Yesterday was a long, HOT day. I have more pictures to show you from our walk around the city, but those will have to wait until the next post. Besides, I need something to keep you coming back for more, right?? Haha.
Do you get called Maam or Sir?? Do you mind as much as I do?
