Savannah--Shopping & Eating (Day 2)

When we finally awoke from our slumber, we (I) decided today would be a good day for shopping. We were going to meet up with our friends out on Tybee Island a little later so we only had a couple of hours to get it all in. I decided to take the car into town so we could see more of the sweet city. Oooooof! When we walked outside, we were all glad for that decision! The humidity was out in full force! How fortunate to have one day of dry heat anyway.

We parked on Broughton Street W. and started walking. First we found a little hippie shop which we enjoyed strolling through.

Nourish was a soap store. Mmmmm. The cuz and I got some delightful salt rubs.

I was so excited to come upon the Savannah Bee Company.

I have seen their products around Fairhope, but finding the actual store was a bonus!

Their displays were beautiful. And they even had a testing "bar." Of course, I partook in that. I loved the Tupelo and Sourwood the most.

Then we strolled on and hit The Paris Market and Brocante, as everyone suggested. Oh my. I was like a kid in a candy shop! Literally!

As you can see, the displays were gorgeous. I loved everything, could afford none. Ka-ching!

Of all the thousands of pieces, I had my eye on this extra large framed print. (I call myself LuLu at times in private). I didn't even dare to look at the price.

And this little black bird tray? Oh, I fell in love with it, but I walked away. A plastic tray $175? Walk away LuLu. I did.

We walked out the door and took a wrong turn right into Lady & Sons restaurant. How strange is that? I had not planned on eating here, was going to high-tale it on up to Soho South. But the kids were hungry so we walked up and got a table right away. What are the odds?

They start you out with a cheese biscuit and a ho cake. I was quite happy with that.

The iced tea was served with lemon and a sprig of mint. Fa fa fa.

I ordered the meatloaf samich. Mmmmmm. It was perfect in every way.

The cuz ordered the grilled cheese.

And the kid got the crabcake.

We ended the delightful meal with a piece of chocolate pie that was buttery rich. Soooooo good! Honestly, I was quite pleased with the place. Since we hadn't planned on eating here and there was no wait, it was good. Would I wait in line? Nope. I don't do lines, thank you very much.

After lunch, we went back down Broughton and hit @home. Another suggestion. There was a sale going on here which I admit to taking advantage of.

It made me think of so many of you out there in blogland. I know the ones who are squelling right now. I can hear you!

Evening 2 to be continued later!

You are so lucky to have gotten into Lady N Sons... We tried last year TWICE and couldn't get in at all.

Looks like another wonderful day in Savannah.

I want to travel with you. Shop with you. Eat with you. You do it the best and I'm lovin' it! I'm glad "Lady" was good -- I like Paula and I'd like to think her restaurant was up to snuff! Sounds like it was!

Oh Ro, you make me want to return there! I love the moss hanging from the trees. I love everything about that place! And wow...you got to eat at Paula's restaurant. How exciting!

Your pics are wonderful.
