I finally got to visit Savannah Ga. during Labor day weekend. Ever since I moved to the south (almost 10 years ago!) I’ve wanted to go to Savannah. The first city I lived in the South was Albany, Ga. (pronounced al-beanie, by the locals – yeah, that’s what I thought too. ha, ha!) Albany happened to be the hometown of a REALLY good cook, Paula Deen. I learned to make really good (but not good for you), fat laden, southern foods and treats from Ms. Deen. Mmmm, yummy. When I found out she had a restaurant in Savannah I just knew I had to visit someday. Unfortunately, during this trip I did not make it to her restaurant so I guess I’ll be making a second trip there sometime! It helps that my little sister’s husband is stationed at Ft. Stewart. I’ll just have to visit my sister more often.
We did get to: swim in the Atlantic at Tybee Island beach (gorgeous), see some neat historical forts (Ft. McAllister and Ft.Pulaski,) walk down River St., and see the animals at Oatland Island Wildlife Center.
I’m glad there is still lots left to see for our future visits to the area. In the mean time I’ll keep dreaming of some Gooey Buttercake (you can’t go wrong with any of the flavors.)
