We made it back from the big road trip! Last week, Joel and I packed the CRV with bikes and snacks and drove down to Savannah, GA, for an old friend's wedding! We hit the road bright and early so we would have time to check out the city befor wedding stuff started. LOVED this city!
We stayed at the Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn which we quickly noticed was a bit of an older crowd, but that is our kinda style. It's right on Chatham Square in the Historic District.
our suite was on Taylor Street
The really cool thing about this bnb is that they have the option of a "Manager's Choice". You pay a lower rate but don't get to choose your room. The idea is that you could end up in a standard room or get bumped into a nicer room if the standard gets booked. Works well if you are just traveling with two people! Well we lucked out! We ended up in a suite with a king size bed, a living room, and back patio on the floor level! Had our own front door with a hallway for the bikes!
The breakfast was good too! They offered a healthy option every day with homemade granola and yogurt! Yum! I clearly have only good things to say about this place!
We managed to get a run around the city in during our stay and rode our bikes around too! Savannah is so bike friendly! Our old school bikes fit right in!
Saturday night was Melissa's wedding. It was beautiful!! She got married (to Erik) under a tree on Green Square that was off the beaten path. Very intimate and personalized ceremony with reception to follow and Cha Bella! The reception was a block from the ceremony on their outdoor patio (so cute). The food was delicious!! We managed to get this photo at the reception.
we were being cheesy on the swing but it actually turned out rather cute
After the reception, we hit the town with our new friends, Megan and Shane. (We didn't actually manage to get any pictures of all of us but I think the professional photographer did. Hopefully I can post a few of those later on.) On the walk back from River Street, a cat managed to follow us. And by follow, I mean Joel coaxed him the whole walk back. The cat would look both ways and cross the street with us...clearly an urban cat. He had a collar on so we called the owner when we got back to the bnb. The voicemail starts of with "if you are calling about the cat". Turns out, he is an outdoor cat and roams the historic district. Cool little guy. Wish I would have taken a picture of Joel with his new buddy.
Sunday we checked out early and met the newlyweds and the other guests in Forsythe Park for a farewell picnic after a nap in the sunshine. We wished the happy couple a nice honeymoon and headed off to the second part of our road trip...Charleston, SC! More on that tomorrow :)
