I'm an Army brat, so we moved around quite a bit in my early years, but I grew-up/was raised in Sleepy Hollow, NY, once my Dad retired. Don't let me being a 'yankee' fool you, though, I have a serious love for most things southern; Savannah quickly stole my heart!
|Spanish Moss, yes, please!|
How perfect that I received the magazine in the mail as we were deciding where to take our trip?! It was a sign, I'm sure.
What a beautiful Inn, I love the old architecture; the 16 bay veranda on the front... which has been there since the beginning... stunning!

|A quick view of our room, which looks amazingly similar to my bedroom at home,|
same color paint, white bedding, dark mahogany furniture. *swoon*
|The view overlooking River St and the Savannah River from E Bay St.|
We walked to the end of E Bay to have dinner at The Pirates' House Restaurant. Fun atmosphere and great food... worth the walk, though, it really wasn't too far. There's so much haunted history in Savannah as well, and to think that we ate dinner where many a Pirate frequented from the mid-1700's on, was really something.
After dinner we walked down to River St., full of shoppes and pubs. My favorite is always the Savannah Candy Kitchen, where they make homemade candy all day long! Yummy!!! Since it was Easter weekend when we were there, this is where we picked up our girls' Easter basket... lucky girls. *Wink*
This next photo may look familiar as I left a sneak peek of it on my previous post when I made my Commitment to Blogging:
|The sun setting on E Bay St., |
along with the iron lined walkways over River St. alleys,
really make for great photo ops.
|Ahhh, River St., gotta love that cobble stone road!|
|Watch your step!|
Then it was time for more walking... and pictures!
|I love the handmade iron gates!|
|Jones St. voted 'Most Picturesque Street in America' |
several years in a row, by Southern Living Magazine.
|I just adore these homes!|
|It's not Savannah without a secret garden, and Jasmine lined walls!|
Thanks for joining me on this little trip this morning... be sure to come back tomorrow for my Sewing Machine review and a sweet little summertime surprise!
