All right, I have no delusions that you want to hear/read/see every single thing we did on our trip, so I’ll wrap up the rest of our time (excluding a brief review of our motel which will come later) in Savannah in this post.
After strolling the shops for the afternoon, Jordan got to pick our next move. We went to try out an old speak-easy. The drink list was fun; I’d maybe only tried one item on it. I went with a Creme Brulee Imperial Stout (Souther Tier). It was delicious, but I cannot imagine any person wanting two, considering how sweet it was.
We headed over to Six Pence, where we had some supper. It was your standard good pub food. I was craving a Reuben sandwich, so I ordered one sans corned beef. The waitress suggested I ask for a grilled cheese with sauerkraut, which saved me three dollars. Good service.
We headed back to Broughton to try Leopold’s Ice Cream Parlor. Honestly, I still do not understand why there is always a line outside this place. I am guessing I need to google its history to understand it. The ice cream was good, though.
Ice cream cones were eaten on the way to the pick up for our Ghost Tour. Savannah is known for being one of the best Ghost Tour cities in the country, so I had high expectations for our tour. It was fun to see the city at night, and I did pick up some interesting historical facts that I would not have otherwise, but I was expecting a bit more from our tour. (In our guide’s defense, we were stuck with some slightly disruptive drunk ladies for most of the tour…boo). I did get one slightly strange photo from our tour.
Not sure why the exposure happened that way, but I doubt it was supernatural…Although our Ghost Tour was a bit of a let down, that did not ruin our overall feelings about our trip.
We had a great time. Savannah is meant for those who love snapping photos. It is romantic, quirky, yet laid back. It has plenty of places to find quality food. If you think Dixie cannot win over your affections, try a weekend trip to Savannah (just don’t go in the summer, or wear heels on cobblestone streets).
**And two random pictures here. The first is for the Forrest Gump fans among the blog readers. Here is Jordan waiting for a bus in the same square as Forrest. (Chippewa Square)
And my dear sister, Shannon, this one is for you. If you look closely, you can see that the pink elephant used to be wearing a pair of glasses, but they have been cut off.
