Savannah Hospitality

The three B's would like to humbly thank Sherry and Joel for their gracious and patient hospitality!

We spent a solid week in their company, inhabiting their home and taking over the washer and dryer, and we are so very thankful for everything. If we had to get a leak, getting one in Savannah seems to have been the best place to discover it thanks to Sherry and Joel. We got to explore downtown Savannah, walk and shop on River St., visit family and extended family, and had a great time!

On Saturday when the girls walked around downtown we ate lunch at the The Gryphon, a tearoom that's truly a gem. It seemed to have been an apothecary at some point, because the stained glass above the bar is of mortars and pestles and the wall near the restroom has still-working and still-labeled wooden drawers. The ambiance is truly lovely, from its unique chandelier that diffuses soft, cheery (and slightly rosey) light, to the tiled tables and couture-decorated plates. If you're in town with your girlfriends, this is the place to go for a yummy lunch or to take a break from the heat of the day. Make sure you ask what the iced tea flavor of the day is--guaranteed to be delicious and refreshing!

The beauty of Savannah always overwhelms me just a bit. The Spanish moss spilling over the limbs of magestic live oaks, the intricate wrought iron work, the historic town homes and, of course, the stately squares marching their way from end to end of downtown. It's such a romantic and friendly city, and I hope to come back again soon. This is only my second time visiting Savannah, and I think I'm falling in love.
