Summer Adventures pt deux - Savannah, Georgia

I was just there for a weekend which was perfect. Savannah's biggest claim to fame is the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" (I'm on page 2) which sat on the best seller list for about 4 years. But it's a beautiful place. Very charming and picturesque with big old oak trees and spanish moss. Old historic buildings with wrought iron railings and court yards. Houses that stay in peoples' families for generations.

This is the courtyard of the famous Mercer house- that's central to the book.

We stayed at the River Inn beside the river- and enjoyed beautiful views of the water
and of ships passing in the night. (literally)

We also went to the beach which was an unexpected treat. I love the ocean so much- and spent about 4 hours playing in the water.

This is us our first night- just out bar hopping.

We also went to karaoke where Rose belted out some classics and we made some new friends.
