Savannah, by boat, is a considerable side trip off the ICW, so on our road trip back to St. Augustine after Thanksgiving, we decided to have a look at this southern city by land.
I wondered, could Savannah compete with Charleston for my affection?
While Charleston is a grand, pampered lady, who will serve you a mint julep on the veranda ...
Savannah, in a well-loved housedress, will sit down at the kitchen table with you and share some homemade biscuits and redeye gravy.
She's grit and grits, the wealthy and the homeless piled in together. She likes good old southern food, she has an ear for music and an eye for art -- and I love her too.
