Savannah: Through Signs and Shadows

The Flamingos were on their way! We kept pinching ourselves to realize we were actually together on a girls' trip and our sweet husbands were home with all the sweet kidlets. (Thank you soooooo much for watching over the home front while we played!!)

We were SO excited to see this happy sign.


Our matching pink & orange polka dotted flamingo tote bags were a sign that The Girls were living it up in...


Savannah, Georgia

We dined the first evening in a beautifully maintained historic home. Since we were all decked out in, of course, pink, they sat us in their pink room.

During our trolley tour, we stopped to have lunch. I saw this sign on the corner and had to take a picture. Maybe "Red Fish, Blue Fish" was not in their budget , but I couldn't help but think of Dr. Suess anyway.

We waited in line for over an hour to eat lunch here. More on that soon!

About 7 hours later, it was time to eat supper here at Paula Deen's restaurant. Yes, food was a priority of this trip, as well it should be.

We drove across the bridge just to say we went to South Carolina.


See? Here are our shadows in South Carolina. We wanted to drive out to Hilton Head, but did not have time. So many fun things to do, it's hard to fit it all in.

Tybee Island was a quaint, laid back beach town. We toured the historic Tybee Island Lighthouse grounds and restored buildings. It is always interesting to capture glimpses into the past, isn't it?

We played on the beach for a bit and collected some shells.

Of course we had to leave our mark on the beach. Well, at least until high tide.

Life is like a box of chocolates, or so they say, so we ate a Hershey's kiss in Chippewa Square. This is the site where Forrest Gump sat on a bench and talked with his mother in the movie. The bench was just a prop though, there is only a cement wall there.

Our shadows took in the sights of colonial cemetery. It really is a beautiful old cemetery dating back to colonial and civil war times. Visiting Savannah, a town so rich in Southern history, has ignited a desire to read more about the Civil War.

Our last meal was in City Market at a restaurant called Belford's. You guessed it, more food! Soon after we went on our ghost tour. Boo!

Yes, there is still more to tell...even with a few face pictures instead of just feet, signs and shadows...promise!
