Went to Savannah and worked my way down the coast last week. Got into The Lady & Sons (Paula Deen’s place, above) at 11:30 without a wait, which surprised me. Going on a weekday is the way to go. Paula nor her sons were there, but that wasn’t a surprise. I wanted Mom to meet Paula, because they’d have gotten on famously. They could’ve been separated at birth, doncha know. Mom was with me in spirit, though, as always. I only managed a couple of days in Savannah, and would really like to spend more time there.
Other highlights were Brunswick and Darien. There’s some stuff I didn’t get to (Sapelo Island and Cumberland Island), that’ll have to wait for another trip. Took over 1500 photos, visited 88 NRHP sites, 10 National Historic Landmarks and a couple of National Monuments, so a success all-round. Wish I didn’t have to get new tires, but that’s just my luck, I guess.
