Winter has certainly taken its toll in one form or another. If the rain hasn’t drowned out our sanity, the ice and snow have certainly chipped away at our resolve. What’s needed is a temporary respite… a break if you will! Where to you ask …. well someplace much warmer and sunnier… Savannah!
As I have posted before there are several rituals upon our arrival in Savannah that we must experience. Starting with the all-you-eat can brunch at Pirates House on East Broad Street. When you have to catch an early flight out of DC breakfast is not always option. The okra, collard greens, mac & cheese and fried chicken are absolutely delicious.
After lunch it’s time to walk along River Street, and first stop was into Byrd’s Cookies as “salted caramel” wafted through the air. Once over the threshold you realize the shop is a cookie fanatics dream with a variety of benne wafers, cheddar crisp and baskets filled with treats.
Did I mention our mini-vacation was to experience the taste of the South so, we started by stocking up on baked goods and sweet treats!!!
