Romantic getaway

Patsy and I just returned from our romantic getaway to Savannah, GA in early celebration of our 13th anniversary and had an amazing time. I know it sounds like so much cheese but these times away with my wife are so wonderful and get better the longer we are married.

Anyway in the way of highlights Patsy and I arrived Thursday evening and it was raining but it let up and we went down to the river front and ate at a Greek restaurant and tried some new food. We are always looking to try new food both gourmet and exotic and down home!

We stayed both nights at the Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn. Not everyone appreciates history, but we are big fans of all eras and this was a colonial era home. We stayed in the parlor room and had a great big four-poster bed an a stone fire-place. We loved it, except for the eggs and grits for breakfast the second day. OK so we don't love all food!

On Friday we we went to Lady and Sons for lunch. We got in line at about 8:45 in the morning to put our name in and we were in plenty of time. We did not see Paula Deen or her kids but we did see her husband Michael walk by. We really didn't care to see them we just wanted to eat there. Very good food especially the bread and the dessert. Patsy had a great meatloaf sandwich too.

After lunch we went on a trolley tour of Savannah and then toured an old home. After that we went back to the B and B for a nap. That evening we went out to Tybee Island and walked the beach and then went to a restaurant called the Crab Shack. It was hilarious with live gators and basket lights and live oaks growing out of the decks. Check out their website here. We had a wonderful boiled platter of shrimp, crab legs, lobster claws, crayfish, corn of the cob, oysters, sausage and potatoes.

The next day we had breakfast and walked around a Park for awhile. Savannah has tons of small parks or squares with fountains and live oaks, crape myrtle trees and magnolias all with Spanish moss on them. Then we drove home to find that our sitter Heather (and Pastor Paul helped too) had our house and kids in wonderful shape.
