Day 2 in Savannah

After getting a good night sleep at the Inn, our pre-ordered breakfast was delivered to our room and set up on the balcony for us to enjoy.  It was the perfect way to start the morning…beautiful views, great weather and delicious food.

When breakfast was over, we packed up our stuff and went on a sightseeing ride along the water.  Next time, I want to go back when I have more time to relax and hang out down there.  It is a a very interesting place with lots to see and would be really good for people watching.

Then it was off to meet up with my friend, Michelle…the one that gave us the carriage ride the night before.  Her house had been destroyed in Hurricane Matthew. We created a go fund me account for her to raise a decent amount of money to help them make it through the hardship.  We took a ride out to her house to see the damage.  While we were there, her son found one of his favorite toys and it was really sad that he couldn’t take it with him.  The fiberglass insulation had contaminated almost everything they owned.

 

We sadly said goodbye to Michelle and headed to Savannah Harley Davidson to drop the bike off for the holidays.  They stored it for us and did some much needed maintenance on it.

I know these posts are late being posted and this one is short, but I hope you enjoy them anyway.

 

Savannah

After spending the two days in Charleston, we headed to Savannah.  We took a scenic route, driving past many of the beautiful plantations.  We didn’t go into one but did drive around and take some cool pictures.

Along the way we came across an old military base, turned regional airport, with a very cool memorial so we stopped to check it out.  We almost missed it, but I’m glad that we didn’t.  It is Low Country Regional Airport and it is located just off of I-95 in Walterboro, SC.   It is where the Tuskegee Airmen trained….It was very interesting and I’m glad that we stopped.

We continued on our way and made it to Savannah.  We booked a room at The Keyhoe House.  It is the oldest house in Savannah and I highly recommend staying there.  The service was great and the rooms and balconies are amazing.

Kirk enjoyed the fact that you had to step through a giant window go get to the balcony.

Once we got settled in our room and enjoyed the delicious happy hour we went on a fun and romantic carriage ride through the historic district.  It just so happens that one of my best friends from high school, that I hadn’t seen in years, was a carriage driver.  She hooked us up with a great night.

After the carriage ride we headed to dinner at The Olde Pink House.  It was a very cool old historic house that had been turned into a restaurant.  The food was really good.

When we finished dinner, the waiter told us about the bar in the basement.  It was full of ghost stories and a very unique vibe.

When we were done exploring for the night we hopped on a pedi-cab and headed back to our room.  We finished off our bottle of wine from dinner on the ride (because you can do that in Savannah) and slept like babies in the comfy bed. It was a great day!
