sweeter than... (savannah, ga)

a Georgia peach. Walking through Savannah, I felt like I was in a movie, in a dream, and I loved every second of it. It was beautiful and my hosts were absolutely amazing. In total, I think I wandered for 12 hours through its historic streets of Southern charm... and I have the photographs to prove it. Enjoy:
[Thursday afternoon walks]
[Coffee break]
[Spinach salad too]
[Graduate school?]

[Green refreshment]
[Friday house tours]

[Boutique shopping]
[Art gallery exploration]
[Riverfront stroll]
[Barney butter & flatbread snack]
[honoring Girl Scout roots]
[Gourmet Southern dinner at 700 Drayton]

[Merlot & Cab Sauv blend, House salad]
[Pan Seared Atlantic Scallops, hickory smoked tomato grits, wild mushrooms, asparagus ragout]
[Downtown for the night with CouchSurfing host & friends]
Honestly, I did not want to leave. I wouldn't mind moving back some day; perhaps to live in that green and red house above? Surrounded by old homes, clothing boutiques, art galleries,  and antique shops? Hm, it's a thought :). Time to explore Montgomery and then make my way over to New Orleans. Ciao for now!
