Savannah

Okay can you stand one more post about our vacation? LOL The kids all left yesterday and my sweetie and I have a few days until we head back to Cincy. We have enjoyed our time here in Hilton Head and are having grandbaby withdrawal. The place seems so quiet without the grandbabies here. I hope that when we come next year that little Cameron can come also, then I'l have all three grandbabies at the beach with us. Anyway before they all left we made a side trip to Savannah. Savannah is a gorgeous old south city, with Spanish Moss trees everywhere. It was raining when we got there so I didn't take many photos. I am not sure what this building is there but I thought it was cool with the gold dome. The flag was flying half mast for 9/11.
There are all kinds of candy shops along the River Walk area and Maddie was enthralled with this display. We got a bunch of cinnamon coated pecans. Oh man, those things are so addicting and so good, they were gone really fast. LOL
Here's the River Walk area. It's a series of shops and restaurants. Paula Deen's restaurant, The Lady and Sons is right up the street and we tried to get in but everyone was just too hungry to wait. That was probably a good thing considering the amount of food I have eaten on this trip.
Savannah also has a number of parks all over the city. They call them squares and Maddie had a blast chasing the pigeons all over the place. The pigeons finally got smart and moved to the other side of the square. LOL
Anyway I am sorry I haven't been around to visit everyone as much as I like too but will catch up with ya'll(see I am talking southern) when I return next week. The next few days I am just going to relax with my sweetie and enjoy this time we have been blessed with. I hope everyone is well and safe and is having a good weekend!

Sugah, there's nothin' a-tall wrong with talkin' southern around these here parts. I'm so glad you're enjoying the vacation. Savannah IS a great place to visit; just don't try getting near the place on St. Patrick's Day. Whewee....

Ya'll come back now, ya hear? :)

This looks like the best vacation ever.
That sky looks pretty menacing.
