Every now and then when I go on vacation, I tend to act like a tourist…
A few years ago…actually maybe about 8 or 9 years ago, we took a trip down to Savannah, GA.
On this trip, we stayed with friends who owned a house on a golf course on Skidaway Island (just outside the city).
Right before our trip, I read the book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. Since the novel took place in Savannah, I felt like I really knew the city after reading the book.
For some reason, I don’t have a picture of Mercer House though! (The house from the book.) You would think I would have remembered to photograph the house!
Anyway, I had to do all the touristy things…
Sit in some of the town squares.
Take a guided tour to all the historical homes…
Pose in front of the candy store on River St.
And eat lunch at Paula Deen’s restaurant, The Lady and Sons. (This was their old location. They have moved since then.)
And of course I had to meet Paula, ham it up for a picture and have her sign a cookbook!
Then I ended the weekend taking photos of all the famous statues.
And that is how I acted like a tourist in Savannah!
