Sultry, Sexy Savannah...Wine, Wine, Wine...

This was a perfect day in Savannah...the sun shining, a cool breeze blowing and a burbling fountain in the courtyard to keep me company while I read and daydreamed and thought about what is going on in my life right now.

This morning, most of our group went to The Mansion for a cooking class with Chef Darren. I missed the class because my ankle is killing me today. What a pain in the...well, in the leg, I guess...not to be able to walk through the park and stop for a glass of wine in the cafes. Still, an afternoon spent lollygagging in the courtyard of this lovely historic house with a good book and a few cups of Gunpowder Green Tea made it a perfectly acceptable afternoon for me!

Later on, Leslie, Kendall, Rose and Lou came down and sat with me in the sunshine and we had a great conversation about Savannah and the wonderful things about this city. We were also joined by a local woman who owns a gardening and landscaping firm. She had been asked to take a look at the yard and decide if she wanted to take it on as a landscaping project.

Tonight, everyone is off to Molly McPherson's Pub for dinner and then out into the dark of night to go on a Haunted Pub Crawl!

Here are a few photos for you to enjoy...

Rules For Living In Savannah
57. Don't believe everything the downtown tour guides tell you.
The Confederacy, for example, did not win the Civil War.

Wonderful to see the photos of everyone and to reminisce about the gtg last year. How I wish I could be there with you all. The days since everyone's arrival sound wonderful. So glad the weather has turned warm. Feel better Brenda. Thank you for blogging.

Sounds like you are having great time, Brenda. Sorry about your ankle.

Thanks for the memories!! :)

Nancy,
Damn ankle! I hope it goes away before I leave, because I want to walk through the park, walk down Bull Street, window shopping my way downtown...at least once before I leave for home!

Thanks, Barb!
I appreciate knowing that you and my other friends read what I write.

It has been a fantastic time, and I cannot believe I only have a couple of days left...:-(

Eden,
We have had a wonderful time! As you can tell from the posts on the message board on Slowtrav, we are truly enjoying every single moment.

Jerry,
We are!
You remember last year, so you know what we've been up to and where we've been going, what we've been eating and drinking!

Candi!
Thanks for your comments...we are having the best time and the weather came on board for us, giving us sunshine and starlight, so all is well in the land of azaleas and Southern charm!

Kathy,
It's a gorgeous seductive city, Savannah is!
We've been charmed once again by her magical ambience. It has as much to do with the people we've been meeting as it does with the places we've been seeing.
Just lovely!

girasole,
I decided I would enjoy what has been placed before me while I'm here, and I also decided not to whine about my little issue with my mobility. I thought to myself, "Rather than complaining about the one place that hurts, why not focus on the far greater area of my body that does NOT hurt!"

Leslie,
You are so totally welcome!
I so enjoyed spending time with you...the flowers you left for me are gorgeous and I promise to change their water every single day. I'll pass them on to Karen when I leave.:-)
