Upon leaving Atlanta on Tuesday morning, we headed down to Savannah. We could have come back up through Charlotte, but the Democratic National Convention was going on and we wanted to avoid the traffic.

My impressions of Savannah, GA – it’s pretty and flat.

There are a great many trees draped with Spanish moss forming picturesque tunnels for you to drive through.

Very, very flat. Lots of marshland.

Lots and lots.

That’s about it. If you’re interested in ghosts or Civil War history or graveyard tours (which feature both) you would probably get more out of the city, but a quick drive around was all it took for me.

There’s also this, which is apparently how mortgage companies advertise in Georgia.

We did have dinner at a Mexican restaurant where MD told me I had to go take a picture of the sink.

It’s sad that this was the most excitement we saw all day, besides getting lost.

While getting lost, we did find a neat little cupcake place, which we visited the next day after hitting a thrift store.


More cupcakes.

MD had a Hummingbird, which was hummingbird cake (if you don’t know what that is, I feel sorry for you) with cream cheese icing, and I had a White Chocolate Raspberry Frappe. The icing was too sweet and there was too much of it, but the cakes were good.

After Savannah, we headed to Charleston!

Which involved even more flatness.
