So this week I’ve been in Savannah getting some training for work. I’ve got to admit that it’s been a pleasant departure from the habitual grind and a nice reprieve before I’m inundated with work. It’s been quite some time since I’ve visited Savannah; in fact, I hardly remember the last time I visited–on a field trip in Elementary School. The historic downtown area is beautiful and singularized by countless quaint little squares. Each of the squares (while sharing many of the same attributes) seems wholly remarkable.

This evening I wandered down to River Street and walked along the boardwalk overlooking the river. Along this charming little artery, there are a bevy of different shops and restaurants representing everything from the mundane to the striking. From upscale chains and small-town dives, the boardwalk seems to have it all, and amazingly enough, this is but one of many such streets like this in Savannah. As I aimlessly meandered about, my attention was caught by a rather interesting fountain. Since I had my camera, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to snap away.

Before I made it to Savannah, I was told that I absolutely must eat at Paula Dean’s restaurant “Lady and Sons” which is famous for it’s deliciously unhealthy cuisine. How could I ignore such a recommendation? I have to say, after taking that advice for dinner, it’s every bit as good as described. However, if you’re not a fan of fried food or heavy cream typical of Southern cooking, you need not apply. I ordered the Seafood combo, but from the looks of the place, the most popular entree had to be the buffet. From the biscuits to the soup to the sublimely moist shrimps, scallops, and oysters, I left without the smallest pang of hunger.

I’ve still got one and a half days here in Savannah, and I’m just hoping that I’ll have the time and energy to soak up as much as the city as humanly possible. My only worry is that I’ll end up looking a bit like jolly ol’ Santa, and i don’t think that’s a look that suits me particularly well.
