Our first fun stop on the trip was Savannah, Georgia. We didn’t plan on visiting Savannah, but we were pretty hungry at the time we were driving by it, so we had Mr. Garmin route us to “Cafe Ambrosia”.
It’s right across the street from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
I had their “Baguette Blanche”. A delicious turkey sandwich, filled with grilled mushrooms & onions, herb cream cheese & pesto. My Mom had the “Honey Chicken Salad Croissant”. Which was made up of chicken breast, walnuts, celery, red flame grapes and a delectable sweet honey mayonnaise.
After lunch, we strolled down the street with our smoothies. I had Peach/Raspberry, and Mom had Peach/Mango. We stopped at “The Paris Market”, a couple of blocks down from Cafe Ambrosia.
I remembered that Country Living had featured their shop a while back, and was anxious to see what was inside. The window displays were beautiful…
Don’t you just love the picket fence covered in old book pages?
Makes me want to cover something with them too!
I didn’t take any photos of the shops main floor, but I couldn’t resist snapping some downstairs. Just look at this place…
These green bins drove me wild!
It conjures up images of a Tuscany…breezes bending their way around tall, straight cypresses…olives darkening with oil…grapes ripening on vines. Hazy slopes dotted with colorful distant hill towns. (sigh) I really need to take a trip there some day.
I think I may have to re-do my linen press, to make it look more like it. 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow with more photos of Savannah. It was my favorite city we visited on the whole trip, and I can’t wait to bring Kevin back there in the Fall.
Oh! And thank you so much to everyone who left me Birthday comments last Friday! You guys are the sweetest! 🙂
