Beaching and Fine Dining…

That encompassed a large majority of our vacation.


I completed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, a great book once you plow through the wordy beginning.  It hooked me enough to start The Girl Who Played with Fire.


I broke out my sun dresses for dinners.  Sisterly love!

Another tree!  Shocking!


Celebrating Mom and Dad’s Birthdays at the Crazy Crab.  Best birthday cake ice cream EVER!  Glad my family is in favor of passing food around the table to share.


Dinner in Savannah at Belford’s of Savannah.


I didn’t take a picture of it, but I do have to share my appetizer with you…

Creamy Brie cheese baked in puff pastry. Served with sliced French bread,
our house made blueberry sauce and Savannah Bee Co. honeycomb

It was to. die. for.  One of the greatest combinations of food every.


We got our last fill of sea food while dining on the water at the Old Oyster Factory.  Best hush puppies every.


One big happy family!



Good night and good bye Hilton Head Island.  You served us well.

What’s your favorite food combination?

Day 2 was a hot but lovely day in the quirky town of Savannah, GA.  Lots of walking and rehydrating in the heat and humidity.  However, the charm of the city made it all worth it.


A splurge on a latte Frappuccino from Starbucks kept me cool while I strolled through Forsyth Park.  It was delicious beyond words.  I used to drink them a couple times a week in college.  Had to cut back for obvious reasons since then.  But it makes them so much more tasty when I do splurge!  Yay for vacation.


While strolling around the historic downtown Steve and I took pictures of trees.  Did you know I’m obsessed with trees?  I have a whole folder devoted to just my tree pictures.  I always find a unique tree while I’m traveling and hopefully some day will get around to printing them and find a wall to devote to them in my home.  Someday being a key part of the sentence.  Winking smile


These pretty pink trees were everywhere.  They gave me pangs of wanting to live in a warmer climate where tropical things can exist.  Then I remember that I get whiney when I’m hot.  Ha!


Last stop of our touring day was Lady and Sons, Paula Deen’s restaurant.  Really I would have just gone for the corn cakes with maple syrup, on the bottom of my plate below.  I had shrimp and grits too, which was good, but probably would have been just as good if not better from other southern restaurants.  It was a rowdy good time though.  And our waiter was from the same county in PA as us!  NoteIt’s a small world after all…Note


Do you have a special thing you like to photograph when you travel?  Lamp posts, flowers, mailboxes…
