Hi all, long time no blog! Yea, sorry about that. There’s been so much going on that, yet again, my poor blog got neglected. I’m going to play catch-up, but it might take a few posts to do that. So here we go.
I left off at “America’s favorite rest stop,” South of the Border, which was right at the SC/NC border. So where did we head after that? The Deep South towns of Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA. And how would I describe these classic southern cities? In one word, charming.
Charleston was surprising, because not only did you have that southern flavor, but it also seemed to have a great artsy feel, as well as a fun nightlife. We found a fun beer bar called “Closed for Business” that was jumpin’ even on a weekday.
Of course, I loved the color this old city had to offer, and I had to go shooting on a street called “Rainbow Row,” which was lined with classic southern houses in every color under the sun. This was totally a place we’d like to go back to and hang out for a longer period of time.
And then there’s Savannah. This city was a bit more touristy (ok well a LOT more touristy) but was great to visit for the complete “southern experience.” We walked River Street and explored the marketplace, which held both your generic gift shops AND some unique art galleries. AND I must add, that while we were parked in Savannah, we DID watch the flick, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” (This was a prerequisite, I learned )
