{branching out}

I like new. New sites. New places. New challenges. New experiences. New knowledge. New lessons. New paths. New keeps things from getting old.

This was our third trip to Savannah. While we love the beach and the historic district, we wanted to see some things this time that we hadn’t seen before. Something new. We talked with our hotel concierge for some ideas, and she told us about the Savannah Wildlife Center.

We hiked the trails through the Spanish moss covered trees and strolled the boardwalks through the marshes. We observed the natural flora and fauna, including alligators, bald eagles, bobcats, and wolves. And I decided that I have to have a sparkleberry tree. Just because I love the name of it.

I lovelovelove the marshland in Savannah. Maybe even more than the beach. Maybe.

I just noticed that Alex is carrying Jessie’s camera in these photos. That girl can get him to do anything!

Since we were so close to the beach and we had some time to kill before our Ghost Tour, we drove over to Tybee Island. But because we were branching out, we didn’t head for the beaches, but instead explored the local art shops and colorful alleys. I came really close to buying some windchimes made out of Grey Goose bottles (OMG!), but Morgan assures me she can make me one instead.

There’s something about garage doors that I just adore. And I am so getting a coconut topper for my bike. Ya’know, cuz I ride it all the time.

The best thing about Savannah? Cocktails to go!

As the sun set and the day ended, we grabbed dinner in a hole-in-the-wall pizza joint and watched the city lights come to life. Then we headed back into town to catch a ride on a hearse. How often do you get to say that?

Here’s to searching for new things in life. And finding them. And to-go cups. Cheers!
