Crossing the bridge into downtown.
Allie's favorite store front. It's an under-the-sea theme.
We also went to the Savannah Bee Company, a local honey shop.
A colleague of mine recommended we go here and I'm so glad she did. We had a great time trying various honey flavors and exploring the store.
Gorgeous bottled honey
Our hotel in Savannah was a fantastic find. The Mansion at Forsyth Park is located in the historic district and truly one of a kind.
Original mansion portion, now the hotel restaurant
We love this place! The hotel is a restored Victorian mansion that now boasts modern luxury and a fabulous spa and art collection.
Me and Allie, among the art, making faces and eating complimentary cookies. LOL.
The guest rooms are seriously fab. Allie FLIPPED OUT when we walked in. Ha! She has never really stayed in a really unique, boutique hotel so it was fun to watch her reactions. :)
Goofing off :)
View of Forsyth Park from our room.
Before dinner we explored some of the hotel and hung out in the fabulous hotel room. :)
Loungin' in the chaise lounge.
Zach making Allie laugh. (This happens constantly by the way. :))
For dinner we got reservations at Lady & Sons, Paula Dean's infamous restaurant.
I've been to Savannah a few times, but never managed to eat here. This restaurant is a Savannah institution and I'm thrilled we got to check this place off our bucket list. :)
While waiting for our table we explored the Paula Dean gift shop.
We ended up eating on the 3rd floor of the restaurant. Yes, we had to take an elevator to our table. Crazy!
All of us ended up getting the buffet so we could try an assortment of dishes.
The meal started out with two breads (thank you Jesus!). One was a corn pancake, the other a biscuit. Naturally, both were lathered in butter.
Can you tell he's excited?
I love lemonade. And this is officially the best lemonade ever.
We definitely slept well after such a filling dinner and were up and at 'em Wednesday morning for our next adventure - Cumberland Island!
