Tales from the Road: Savannah, Georgia ~ Day Two

Yesterday we decided to tackle the tire issue first thing, get that out of the way and off our minds.  After several phone calls, Chip was able to find a tire shop that carried the right size, about 25 minutes from our campsite.  Before heading out, I threw a quick dinner into the crockpot, Kale and Cannellini Bean Soup from Robin Robertson.

Tire ordered, we continued on with our plans.  We stopped at the local Whole Foods store for bread & a few other essentials, swear I have never seen such a pretty market!

Not only do they have a separate "parlor" (adults only as alcohol is served)..

But they also provide several electric car chargers, how cool is that?

It was a dreary, drizzly day, not optimal for outdoor dining but after seeing this beautiful outdoor patio at the Starland Cafe, I couldn't bear to sit indoors.

My Thai Tomato Soup with Tomato & Guacamole Panini was as delicious as it looked! What a lovely lunch, and Mother Nature was kind enough to hold off on the rain so we could enjoy the view.

These houses are so pretty, but I wonder at the limited amount of parking! I guess if you live here you'd better only have one car!

After lunch we decided to visit one of Savannah's most famous historical sites, the Bonaventure Cemetery.  What a lovely, serene place, I wouldn't mind this being final resting place!

We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing at the campsite, enjoyed soup and yummy bread for dinner, then headed back into town for a show at the Savannah Theatre.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Savannah Live production, would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Today will be relatively quiet, plan to putter around the camp site while Chip installs the new tow dolly tires. I think a long walk with Loki is definitely in order.

Have a wonderful day,

Michele
