My Sissy is coming to visit for a week! I am so excited. I cannot wait to show her why we love Savannah so much.
OK...this is not why we love Savannah so much. The weather for the month of January was...cold! We shouldn't complain. There isn't a couple of feet of snow, but some warmer temps would be welcome. We woke up to frozen plants in the courtyard.
Waving Girl. I love her story.
Alix Baptiste. It was still there this year...either we have weird taste or no one thought it worth the price. This year, we offered him what we could afford and were prepared to leave it for another year, but he surprised us by saying "It's yours!" It depicts the women vendors at the market in Haiti who have not made a lot of sales that day. Because of this they are down in the dumps and have resorted to gossiping. I love the colours, and their necks and their expressions.
Huxsie Scott. She has such an amazing voice.
Savannah Theatre group!
Huey's with two fisted margaritas. Thanks, Sissy!
And one of our many low country meals, this one at Sisters of the New South. The most amazing, moist fried chicken, collard greens, mac and cheese and cornbread. This was their lunch special, which I think was $5.99.
Now I had been avoiding Paula Deen's because I thought it was too touristy. But we were in the City Market and hankering for a biscuit so we went in. I have to say, it was excellent! Good food, good prices and all-you-can eat biscuits and flapjacks (hoecakes?). I don't know which these were, but they were delicious.
Clary's which looked a little like tar. It probably tasted good, but she was having a bit of trouble getting past the colour. The biscuit was good though!
