Our Weekend in Savannah

Scoops & Waff
Jeff and I managed to take off this weekend to visit our best buddies, Matt & Katie in Savannah, GA. Matt began his masters program at the Savannah College of Art & Design this fall, and we’ve been missing the two of them like crazy! Matt, Jeff, and I, had gone to high school and college together, been roommates, traveled together, and grown up together. Then Matt fell in love with Katie-J, and now we get to be her good friend too, we are lucky. We are seriously #blessed to have such special friendships in our life. We said goodbye to them 10 weeks ago, and have missed the crap out of them, we needed to get to Georgia!

Thanks to my parents, and the boys’ Uncle Beak for making this possible for us! Those guys went above and beyond, taking shifts to watch our kids, so that we could go hang hard in the south lands. We left first thing Friday morning and got back late last night, and we crammed everything we could into our 48 hours down south, y’allzerz.

Look! They have an ocean down there, and we got to hang out at it for an entire afternoon! This is Tybee beach also known as Tytebee Beach.

In Savannah, it is not against the law to walk around with your cocktail (aka “walk-tail”) on the streets, we did this a lot. Savannanites love frozen beverages, something that I don’t have a lot of experience with. I thought midwesterners were the ones who liked to drink the most, but these Georgians took it to a whole new level, making frozen grain alcohol drinks, and dispensing them in a to-go cup. Just, “Woah”, Savannah.

There was some crazy brackish tidal currents happening at an inlet near the beach, this is where we saw dolphins swimming just yards away, it was supper cool.

Savannah loves pastel.

Hugest cargo boat going out to sea.

This is Matt & Katie, they are the best, and we already miss them so. We can’t wait to go visit again!

    Awesome! We went to Savannah and Tybee for a friend’s wedding a couple years ago. Unfortunately, rain cut our beach time short, though we did see some waves and a whole lot of people dressed up like pirates. We loved exploring the town (including a genuinely disturbing “haunted Savannah” tour; so Gothic.) While the quaint feel and history of the town is obviously such an important part of Savannah’s identify, I think that the presence of SAIC provides a valuable, forward-looking counterbalance. Such a different vibe from the upper midwest.

      Hey Claire,

      I really wanted to go on a haunted ghost tour or a hearse tour, or something spooky like that, it looked so fun. I would have loved to have more time in Savannah to learn about the town’s history, it’s such a pretty place.
