I am far from settled, but I own a home. I hate driving, but dig road trips, especially if they involve a low rider Buick. My life is full of chances and opportunities to see what life is like elsewhere, but I’m just as content sitting on my couch sipping on my local flavor. I enjoy noise, and the banter of a city, but I also enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods or the sounds of the ocean. I am noticing that more and more, I need it to be quiet, and lucky for me, you can find that anywhere.
Regardless of where I am, I treasure crossing the state line of Georgia, my home state. Even if I’m not visiting family, being in Georgia brings a sense of calm over me and more and more, I’ve learned that I need that. I may never live there again (or maybe I will), but I now know that I will always be coming home, in one sense or the other. For me, nothing will be able to replace Georgia and lately, I’ve really been taking advantage of Savannah, Georgia, where I have visited four times in the last year.
Here are a few of my favorite things about Savannah:
Savannah Bee Company:
If you enjoy honey in your tea or using it as a replacement for sugar in your baking, this is THE honey to buy! It’s pure, and being able to support a local company each time I visit Savannah is a total plus. If you get the chance to visit the store, you get to sample any honey that you want, and try other products. They also have a wine line.
Tybee Island Beach
Savannah Belles Ferry
I love that you can take this ferry for free up and down the Savannah River without any gimmicks, tour guides yammering on and on, nor any folks looking for tips for their latest creation. It’s just an upscale water taxi!
Walking Historic River Street
I’m not really a shopper, but I’m a sucker for the peanut butter fudge at The Candy Company. If your lucky, the indoor candy window will be open, and the cooker will give you a warm praline sample right out of the oven-it’s amazing! In between the honey and candy stores, I love walking along the riverside with sun shining on my face.
I’m not really into the ship’s mission per se, but I am a peacemaker and I believe in the principles of a truly peaceful life. I dig the boat and it’s a welcoming site for me each time I visit Savannah.
