The temps are rising, the sun is shining!
Savannah's heating up, and it feels good.
Guess where we went for lunch today?
That's right, Savannah Tea Room!
Mindy and her mom, Darlene, plus Karen, Kendall and me...with everyone recuperating from the rigors of March travel in the south and the unexpected storm that closed Atlanta to all departing flights, I think we coped pretty well, in spite of our various stages of jet lag, sleep deprivation and limping, gimping sore muscles.
We met at the tea room around noon-ish, ordered a nice bottle of champagne to celebrate our various arrivals through the thick and thin of winter travel, and we toasted ourselves and each other for being the fearless and courageous travelers that we are proving to be!
After lunch, we went separate ways...some went shopping for more rings and jewelry, like Mindy and Darlene. Another walked along the streets of Savannah with a very welcome to-go cup of Bailey's and a little coffee for sustenance, like Kendall. Still others drove home past the lovely and fated Williams Mercer House overlooking the lush Monterey Square, like Karen and I did.
A late dinner at our apartment gave us a chance to visit and catch up on each others' lives. After enjoying heaping plates of fresh bread and creamy brie, we dug into a delicious meal of salad and chicken and many sweets afterwards for the inevitable dessert. Bailey's with a touch of coffee helped the digestion along and Mindy was finally talked into modeling her beautiful fan!
Geoff called to say, "Hi!", and we made arrangements for the Caddy tour for Mindy and Darlene, Rose and Lou for Thursday. I want to see his newly-restored historic home overlooking Forsyth Park...there's never a wrong time to look at gorgeous real estate for me, and this guy knows how to create the very best of beautiful restorations! You can check out his newest creations on the website for their new venture, Savannah Dream Homes.
It's late, the candles have been snuffed out and the stars are bright in the Savannahian night sky.
Time for sleep...tomorrow's another lovely day in this city of the south.
