First up: Savannah, Georgia. Boy was it chilly! Our thin-blooded baby dills weren't quite prepared for such temperatures and windchill.
We walked along the riverfront, popping in and out of shops, mostly to warm up before continuing our journey, but we did purchase some really thin cashew brittle that was scrumptious, [this coming from someone who doesn't like brittle.]
The kids enjoyed the s t e e P steps the most. I enjoyed the old stones and flourishing moss on the steep steps.
Then we came across this stained glass wall of HONEY! Isn't it beautiful? All those shades of amber from different types of flowers.
We had a honey buffet, and tucked under our arm to bring home some local Savannah Tupelo honey, although we are always tempted by Acacia honey, which is the smoothest golden goodness you'll ever find. I also grabbed some mint julep chapstick which has even replaced my Burt's Bees. I know.
Such an actress. You know which one I'm talking about.
We left Savannah to join the cousins in North Carolina! This was our welcome come Christmas Eve morning:
[not from the cousins, of course.] Thankfully, nothing was stolen, not even the GPS, sitting right there on the seat. So, off we went to visit the firehouse with a slew of cousins.
