Savannah

My husband and I are not spontaneous people. Not even in college when we had zero responsibilities. But something about the fact that: A) there were no signs in the labor department and B) we never managed to take a babymoon, got the ball rolling for a last minute trip to Savannah on Sunday.



I probably wouldn't advise others to attempt such a trip at 37 weeks pregnant, but I figured walking would only help get this babe moving in the right direction. You know, with gravity and everything. My giant, swollen feet are now paying the price but it was such a perfect day, I don't even mind.

True to form, our first stop was somewhere to eat. We had never been to Savannah so with Ruby in tow we walked down the riverfront and settled on Tubby's Seafood for its perfect 2nd floor outdoor terrace.



Ruby thoroughly enjoyed her view of the street and our food was delicious. Fried green tomato BLT with hush puppies? Yes, please.


How fun are these walkways to the front door?!



We wandered around the Bay Street, Broughton Street (passing up Leopold's Ice Cream on account of the absurdly long line), Forsyth Park and the City Market. We also stopped by the Old Pink House for a picture.




Savannah reminds me a lot of Charleston with its massive Southern homes, charming old buildings, and delicious food. Though with what seemed to be an open carry law I'm pretty sure it would be a great time with a margarita and sans a baby in my belly.



I wish we had more time to explore (and eat again) but it was the perfect day trip before we become a family of three + a pup!

I hope you all had a great long weekend!

  10. I am super jealous of your trip to Savannah. I lived there for 3 years when I went to SCAD. Savannah is such a beautiful city, but a lot of walking is required.

  11. Gorgeous Pictures! When we went in July, it was too humid to get any good photos! My lens would just fog up from the air conditioning to the humidity outside! So I'm sure now is the perfect time to go!!! Love this city! :))

  14. I looove Savannah- the open container law is only for the historic district. We did a carriage ride at night, and was told a bunch of ghost stories that were kind of neat. By that point in the evening, Leopold's was EMPTY, it was the perfect time to go! -Dorrie @ Bear Den Plantation

  15. What a fun trip! So glad you guys were able to go. I've only been like one time, can you believe that? The time I went we ate at Paula Deen's restaurant. Talk about Southern food. Hopefully all that walking got Rowan moving!

  16. Savannah is one of my favorite cities, and I agree it is very similar to Charleston. Forsyth Park is probably my favorite park. The last time I was there we hit up Paula Deen's restaurant and OMG it was so good...but I think I ate like 5 lbs of butter...ha!
