Last weekend David and I were invited to Savannah Film Festival to take part in a panel after a screening of Lights Out. We came to Savannah very late on Friday and stayed until Monday so we had the entire weekend to experience the town. We were both very excited to be there!
I brought my camera and took so many photos of this beautiful place. I kinda fell in love with Savannah and want to live there now...
Anyways! Let's take a look at our Saturday and the start of Sunday, shall we?
Because of the time difference we missed the hotel breakfast due to sleeping. No problem! Savannah had so many awesome breakfast places that we wanted to try out so we set out for one of them, located just a couple minutes walk from the hotel.
Goose Feathers! Here you can see David looking confused as a waiter came and gestured to me that he wanted to take my camera. He wanted to take a photo of us, but David for some reason thought he wanted to steal my camera and asked nicely first.
The photos strangers take with your camera, ey? Out of focus, and the strangest compositions. It's like he couldn't fit anything in the frame. I think it's perfect anyways!
He also told us the story of how he was on his way to live in LA, 20 years ago, but he stopped in Savannah to visit an uncle and then he fell in love with the town and never made it to LA. He still hasn't been there. Love stories like that! And I TOTALLY get him. Savannah is so beautiful!
We saw dressed up dogs everywhere, and after maybe the seventh dog in costume walked by us we figured this might be more than a coincidence. A sign informed us that it was "Wagoween" in Savannah and all the shops gave out treats for dressed up dogs. Doggie Halloween!!! SO much awesomeness!
A fireman and a pilot!
Supergirl and Superman!
And then David met the strangest dog. A pig! You can see his photo here
I was in Dream House Heaven. I think I said "I want this house" for every other building we walked by.
I mean. This might be my favorite.
Or THIS!! Look at that light!
The weather was just perfect. A bit crisp, but still fairly warm. Fresh air and beautiful slanted sun rays through trees. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
After walking around a couple of hours we went to Leopold´s for ice cream. The girl behind the counter was a fan of ours, and said she and her mother was going to the Lights Out screening on Sunday. It makes us so happy and surprised when people recognize us.
We took our ice-cream and walked to one of Savannah´s 22 squares, and sat down on a bench for some people watching.
With the ice-cream long gone, we continued our exploring of Savannah.
Most magical street crossing I've ever seen.
Spanish moss. Love Spanish moss.
Creates the most moody atmosphere.
Always a fan of rough back alley aesthetics.
Then we found the Forsyth Park.
After this we walked back to our hotel room to rest for an hour or so.
And then evening came! And we had made reservations at a restaurant. So we walked there (oh, how lovely it is to be able to walk places in a town! Stupid LA with all the traffic and crazy distances).
David was handsome.
I had a glass of wine.
After a delicious dinner at B Matthew´s Eatery
we took the route down to the river on our way back to the hotel.
We stayed at the beautiful Marshall House.
And then it was a new day! We were on our way to a waffle café that I had read about online.
Love this clump of buildings and angles.
Walked through parks with huge trees above our heads....
Passed many cute houses and streets...
...and picturesque horse carriages.
Before we reached...
Such a cute little place!
We both took the Peach Cobbler Waffle. So tasty!
Husband looking all handsome and cute.
And then we took an Uber to the Bonaventure Cemetery. But that's for another post.
Prepare for photo bonanza.
