Monday, took off with a friend, Stacey, to Savannah Georgia for the week. Troy had been out of town for the past few weeks and thought I should get-a-way before summer happened upon us. I had always wanted to see Savannah, I'm not really sure as to why Savannah, but I have never been to the Southern States and it's just one of those places down south I thought that I would like to wander around. First stop, food, we were starving after starting our flight at 6am! We ate some yummy pot pies and quiche at the Pie Society, very British shop.

We headed out on foot to explore the square mile of ground that seems to make up Historic Savannah. We walked through a lot of parks, one of which was this cool cemetery.
Wednesday, May 27
We toured another house, the only one we were able to take photographs of. The fountain is the Parisian fountain at Forsyth Park.
Thursday, May 28
We took the car out and about. We drove out to this popular destination to photograph the spanish moss growing on the trees. I always thought the spanish moss grew in the swamp lands, but no it grows on lots of trees all around Savannah.

We had signed up for a Southern Low Country cooking class, so we took the car out again. On our way I wanted to stop at this cemetery. It's a mile and a half long! I saw an angel on a brochure that was supposed to be at this cemetery that reminded me of the Weeping Angels on Dr Who. So I wanted to get a picture to send to Morgan. We just didn't have enough time to even get through half the cemetery in our car before class, so I never saw the one I was looking for, but what an amazing cemetery. Loved all the fenced plots for families to be buried together.
I don't have any pictures but our class was great and all the food was super yummy. First time that I ever had fried green tomatoes, grits and this yummy shrimp sauce they eat over the grits and delicious biscuits. Would definately do that class again.
After our cooking class/lunch we headed out to the outlets to do a little shopping and also ended up watching a movie.
Then Saturday we headed home.
