Oh, Savannah

Our road trip is over. *sigh*

*another sigh*

I was truly heartbroken to be leaving Savannah. I am in love with that city…well, maybe not the whole city since I didn’t see all of it, but certainly the Historic District. My brain is so crammed full of Savannah History and Civil War facts that it literally gives me brain cramps when asked a question. That could be dehydration though. Ya’ll I am so tired. We walked and walked and walked. Then we walked some more. Our bed and breakfast, which was lovely by the way, was at the south end of the Historic District. While it put us only one block from Forsyth Park, it put us firmly 6-10 blocks away from anything to eat or drink. Since we did stay at a B&B and not a hotel we did not have the luxury of a refrigerator. Therefore, we had to walk when we were hungry or thirsty. The only saving grace was that we could get ice in the main house ( the B&B was a series of 5 “brownstone” style townhomes ), and there was a soda machine tucked away in the maintenance room. Mostly we drank ice water cause like I said we were dehydrated and it was Holy-Baby-Jesus-Hot. Now, I’m born and bred in the South. South Florida to be specific, so humdity and I are aquainted with each other. There is a reason Mama owns a Straightening Iron, just sayin’. That being said, I am not the type of person who is usually out and about, walking around in the heat. I’m more of a “go from the air conditioned house to the air conditioned car to the air conditioned location of choice” kinda girl. Not to say that I don’t go outside, I do, it’s just that I’m not particularly inclined to do it for hours at a time.

We saw and did so many things that I’m not thinking I can get it all in to one post, so what I think I’ll do is break this up into a few posts. Heck, I might be able to ride for a week on it. You guys are gonna be sick of Savannah before I’m done, I bet. Humor me, ok? I was thinking about ya’ll while I was there and there are some things that I knew were definitely going in the blog. My poor husband had to humor me as well when he heard for the umpteenth time, “I’m putting that in the blog!”

We had a wonderful time and like I mentioned before, I am sad that it’s over. I surprised myself by taking less than 100 pictures. I normally take more than that on any given day at the beach! Some of them didn’t turn out and are slightly blurry but I’m leaving them in anyway…cause I can. I’m going to try to figure out how to put them in a slideshow for ya’ll, but if that doesn’t happen I’ll just do a picture post. I may do both so that I can add commentary. Give me a little time to collect my thoughts and I’ll get them all posted.

Just think, I leave for my girl’s cruise in less than a month. Ya’ll will probably be hearing about that trip till Christmas, I’m sure.
