  1. Looking at the picture I now have Gordon Lightfoot’s “Spanish Moss” running through my head. Savanah is on my list of places I hope to visit next spring.
    I know the kids missed you! I’m guessing they all piled into bed with you last night.

  2. Savannah is a beautiful city. Your observation is right, only two classes–rich and poor and no in between. It’s a great place to visit in cool weather, but terrible in the summer with all the humidity.
    Tybee is a great place. My niece got married on the beach at the lighthouse. It was a beautiful scene, but some type of little gnat about ate all of us up. We looked like a bunch of monkeys scratching. My niece never did scratch, I don’t know how she exercised so much self-control.
    Did you at at Paula Deen’s place? The wedding reception was there, but wasn’t impressed with the food. Just curious if you did eat there and how you would rate the food.
    I heard the traffic on I-75N south of Atlanta (Jodeco Road) was terrible yesterday. Hope you didn’t get caught in that mess.

  5. Savannah? Gah. I am from Savannah. I cannot believe you did not consult a person you’ve never met and don’t know a thing about before heading to Savannah. Sheesh. I could have totally given you the lowdown on where to stay and what to do. Think how glorious the weekend would have been if you had been constantly following the directions of a complete stranger.

  6. Glad you got to see the dolphins, June.
    Seeing them always makes me smile even after living in FL for 16 yrs and having seen 1,224,567,888,239 of them.
    It never gets old.

  7. I was in Savannah years and years ago because my grandparents had a horrible car accident on their way from Florida to New York. So my mother, my wackadoo aunt and I had to go down there for six weeks. I remember everything being named “Oglethorp This” and “Oglethorp That” and I remember my mother, who had thick hair (and it was the summertime) complaining that “Mother of God, with this humidity, my hair hasn’t been dry since we got here.”
    My grandmother, who whacked her noggin in the accident, then suffered from dementia but had no problem remembering filthy limericks and singing them at the top of her lungs.
    Ah, Savannah. Good times.

  10. My husband kayaked in the ocean off Tybee and the dolphins kept bumping his boat! We stayed in an ocean front house and from the balcony could see them every morning! So glad you went. Yay for seeing dolphins!!

  14. Hope the weekend trip went a long way in bolstering you and Marvin. I am resisting calling him Muffin. That’s your name for him but oh, I love it.

  15. Loves me some Savannah. Did you happen to check out Tybee Island which is just outside Savannah? Hoping it was just horrible traffic that is making you hate everything and not Muffin & The Weekend. Here’s to team Gardens!

  18. I had nothing more interesting to do on the internets this weekend, no hilarious BBP to read, so I looked up stuff on Flickr. And saw this! Which reminded me of you, and your preference for grandmotherly home decor. And it’s part of a whole group (pool?) of contributors called Granny Chic. Which is actually kind of fun. Don’t you wish I’d get to the photo link already?

    My husband and I drove through Savannah on the way home from our honeymoon (five years ago this week!) and thought it was a beautiful town, but because there we could find no available parking we decided to go back and visit another day. Hasn’t happened yet. I hate road trips. That’s not true. I hate road trips when there are other people on the road.

  19. I have always wanted to go to Savannah and now I can (maybe) hear how you liked it. I DEFINITELY want to hear the ride home story…on another day, of course!

  20. Dear Jenn who is being brave:
     
    I stayed at the River something, on the river. Which was loud. The river wasnt loud, it was just loud in our room because it was a-hanging over the restaurants and bars and such. Pretty place, tho. Also too, is there no middle class in Savannah? That is the impression I got. You were either able to afford a beautiful historic home or you lived in the projects.

  21. hi. i’ve been stalking…er following your blog for awhile now but have yet to comment. i hatehatehate that you came to savannah and didn’t announce it (because really…no privacy for you). i currently reside in (a suburb of) the mossy city and could’ve toured you all around. we could’ve been real life best friends rather than the ones i pretend we are. 🙂
    also, who loves parentheses today? (this girl)
    p.s. if i find out that you stayed at the marriott riverside i will kill myself as i spent a good portion of saturday night there.

  22. Despite the trip home, I hope the weekend away was good for your couple-ishness. That’s most important. You might want to step away from the firearms for now though. 🙂
