As we headed further and further south that day, the weather kept getting warmer and warmer! Wohoo! By the time we parked in Savannah, we got to change into shorts and t-shirts.
And we were just about ready for a sweet tea...

...at Paula Deen's restaurant!
Yep, I couldn't believe we got in, but we enjoyed a wonderful meal at The Lady & Sons.
I guess the key is to go for lunch at like 2:30 in the afternoon on a week day. We walked right in!
Although they do recommend ordering the buffet meal, that way you can try everything, Daniel and I just wanted a quick lunch. I order the Lady's Choice Salad and Daniel had what's called the Bag Lady, your choice of half sandwich, soup and salad. (Of course you know he chose a bbq sandwich!)

Visiting the "House of Deen", really inspired me to get back into cooking. And cooking simple, staple things. Like, I could make fresh lemonade or sweet tea to drink, rather than buying a pre-made tea or mixing up a Crystal Lite.
I could just buy those cookies at the grocery store, or wouldn't a homemade pie or cheesecake taste way better..?
There's just something special about making your own food.
Here are the recipes for the sweet tea and homemade lemonade we had at The Lady & Sons.
After lunch, we headed toward the famous Savannah River Street.
I was captivated by the old buildings and cobblestone pathways.
On the other side of this (above) photo was the Savannah River. So when you walked around, you had buildings and storefronts on one side, and the riverview on the other!
We spotted this cute, touristy ferry!
Although we spent only but 3 or 4 hours in Savannah, I still really enjoyed my time there.
Savannah is a beautiful city with lots of parks and green spaces. It (like Charleston) has that port city feel, filled with rich history.
The people are friendly and the food is delicious!
