I have been meaning to blog about my trip to Savannah with Mom for a while, but haven’t managed to get it written, but it is time! Right after school let out for summer, Mom and I took a trip to Savannah, GA for a few days. Mom wanted to get a feel for the city that will be the site of my wedding before the big day, and of course I was more than happy to show her around.
Mom and I drove down on a Saturday and stayed through Wednesday. We stayed at the extended stay Marriott on Bay Street. Location was fabulous as we were just up from River Street — on of my favorite streets in all Savannah. Saturday night we ate at Lizzy’s (fabulous food and drinks) and took it easy. Tropical storm Beryl was threatening to make landfall in Savannah early in the week, so we decided to hit the beach and see where our ceremony would take place before we got hit with rain on Sunday. We lucked out with our location in that it is on the south side of Tybee Island down from the pier. I was starting to really get excited when we found our location and were walking on the beach! 4 more months.
After we walked around a bit on Tybee Island and saw the pier, we headed towards the Crab Shack for lunch. We really lucked out in that we got a corner table near the water under the tree. Perfect area to enjoy a yummy lunch!
Monday we were expecting Tropical Storm Beryl to make landfall, so we decided to do the Savannah Trolley tour to give Mom a sense of the city. I love doing trolley type tours as you learn so much about the rich history of the city. I also hear about all the various places I want to stop and see more of!
After the tour we had lunch at the Boar’s Head. This was a neat restaurant in that one — the food was delicious and two — the place was made from the ship masts of ships that came through the port. We sat near a window and watched a couple of ships come into the port as well as leave the port. It was a neat lunch!
Tuesday the rain finally came. I took Mom to Savannah Station so she could see where the reception would take place. We didn’t do much else that day due to the rain. We did though find a new cafe called Kayak Kafe that is amazing!! I so wish we had one of those here as I would frequent it often. We both had tacos that came on corn tortillas that may have been the best tortillas I have ever eaten. If you are in Savannah, I highly recommend this place!
We took it easy Tuesday afternoon and revisited River Street during a break in the rain. The trip was a great time of bonding between Mom and I. She helped me try out new places to recommend to the guests while they are in Savannah. She was also full of great ideas for the wedding weekend. I had so much fun having a girls trip just with mom.
Thanks Mom for a fabulous girls vacation! Love you!!
