Sweet Savannah, The Rest of the Weekend

I am sorry for the large paragraph....Blogger wasn't cooperating with my spacing today! Arrr...

Saturday we woke up ready to go and shop! Well at least I did...Our hotel was in a great location and we were able to walk most everywhere. We walked and shopped our way through Savannah...what cute shops they have there! I wish I had an unlimited budget because I could have bought quite a few things, but I resisted!

What a cute sign...

Paula and Company :) We didn't eat here, but did eat at her brother's restaurant, Uncle Bubba's Oyster House.Jacqueline :)Amy really wanted to be a ship Captain at Uncle Bubba's.
Great food and it's right on the marsh...beautiful view. It is a little way out of town, but worth the short drive.
After lunch we drove out to Tybee Island because we thought it was going to be a quite, quaint, little island that we had seen in Southern Living....wrong! To our surprise very commercialized with big hotels and resorts. We described it as the Myrtle Beach of Georgia....I think I might have turned into a beach snob after going to Fripp and the other quite SC sea islands for so long. Needless to say we turned around and made our way back to the hotel just in time before a afternoon thunderstorm rolled in, which was accompanied bt a nice cool nap for the 4 of us.
Saturday night, we ate dinner at a cute place called Sapphire Grill ( Oops! I forgot to take a picture) and we were all still full from lunch, so we got appetizers. I got crab cakes and a Caesar's salad....the perfect amount of food and very yummy. A trolley ghost tour followed dinner, it was interesting to hear about all the stories from the old buildings in Savannah. I learned that if you live in a house that is haunted it is actually worth more. (There is your fun fact for the day.) After the ghost tour we headed to find a place to hang out for the evening. The restaurant/bar of the Bohemian Hotel ( i think) is where we ended up and I enjoyed this Savannah Sweet Tea...very good!
And we ran into a sorority sister at her Bachelorette weekend. What a small world! See you in July Ashley!The girls :)
Much later in the evening...
Sunday morning we woke up, packed up, checked out, and headed to brunch at this cute joint...
And said goodbye :(What a wonderful weekend with 4 of my favorite ladies! We ate well, laughed a lot, and had a good time catching up. Love y'all! Let's not wait this long to do it again!
