Savannah Trip

The Cotton Exchange - what a cool building!

Our Girl Scouts

Chloe in one of the beautiful squares - I don't remember which one.

The girls modeling hats @home What a fabulous store! The owner was so friendly and gracious. I need to go back after I've robbed a bank. I would need lots of cash for all the things I wanted. At The Paris Market & Brocante (the picture below) I would need some of that cash, too. Beautiful things, wonderful ambience.

We recently went to Savannah, Georgia with our Girl Scout troop. There's only two girls in this senior troop, my daughter and the leader's daughter. Fortunately, the leader is one of my best friends and I love hanging out with her! The four of us stayed at the Marriott Courtyard, compliments of Lori's friend Pat. It was a fabulous room, within walking distance of the Girl Scout Headquarters and also of the Birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder. We enjoyed touring the GS sites and also did a GS "scavenger hunt" all over the city. We visited beautiful cathedrals, most of the town squares and the river front walk.

The first night we took a walking ghost tour, conducted by a wonderful guide, Gail, from Discover Savannah Walking ( It was very interesting, as she really knew her history and the area.

We also got a chance to visit @Home and The Paris Market & Brocante. I could have spent hours shopping in either place. We refreshed ourselves with tasty treats at Leopold's Ice Cream. Don't miss it - the best!

I've never walked so much in my life - literally 8 hours solid one day. My legs were done for. Next time, I'll opt for the pedi cabs and tour buses. But we had a great time and I can't wait to go back.
