Savannah On My Mind

I have been obsessed with the idea of visiting Savannah since I first saw the Clint Eastwood helmed movie Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil based on the non-fiction book by John Berendt. So when my husband and I were trying to decide how to celebrate my 40th birthday and our 15th wedding anniversary this July, I suggested that we go for a long weekend to Savannah. We’d heard from friends of its storied beauty and romantic ambiance, and with the pre-civil war architecture so exquisitely highlighted in Eastwood’s movie, we both figured it would be a great place to get away. As Northerners who usually spend our vacations on the West Coast, we hadn’t anticipated the heat wave that would strike while we were in the South. All in all, it was a great trip, and despite being soaked with sweat by noon every day, the sights alone were worth it with the food being the icing on the cake. We will most definitely be back, as we were unable to see everything we wanted to in the short time we were there. It’s just that we will go during the Spring or Fall months. Word to the wise!
