I’m in Savannah!

I got to the airport around 8am this morning and got to the gate just as the A-group was boarding. I joined the line and got an aisle seat towards the front of the plane. The flight was fine; I just read/dozed the whole time.

When I got to the Jacksonville airport, I picked up my rental car and drove the 2 hours to Savannah, GA. When I got to Savannah, it was about 1pm. I followed the signs to the historic distric, so that I could do a little sight seeing before work tomorrow.

Savannah is a beautiful city! The buildings are old and there are trees/plants everywhere. It’s hard to explain, but there are lots of tiny parks in the middle of traffic circles. They’re practically on every block. There weren’t many cars either, so it was very peaceful. I found a parking space and explored for a while.

A guy that I work with grew up here and he told me to go to Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room. I had the address, but when I found the place, it looked like someone’s house. I even walked by it to see if it was a restaurant – I don’t see how it could be. I definitely wasn’t going to go to the door, so oh well. I’ll have to tell him that I couldn’t find the right place or something. Ryan had a good point – maybe it’s his parents’ house or something, haha! Or I’m just stupid and wasn’t looking in the correct place.

So I spent about 2 hours driving/walking around the city. I was starting to get really hungry and thirsty, so I decided to go to my hotel. It is right near the Savannah airport, which is funny since I flew into Jacksonville. This hotel is super nice. My room is huge and it’s like a suite. There’s a room with a couch, a comfy chair, a desk, a huge TV, a refridgerator, and a microwave. In the bedroom, there’s a king size bed, some cute lamps, a nice closet. The bathroom area is large too, with a nice marble counter/sink. I’m glad it seems good, since I’ll be here for 6 nights!

When I got settled, I headed out to find food. Down the street is a Walmart and a Ruby Tuesdays. I got a few things at Walmart and then got food To Go at Ruby Tuesdays.

Now I’m just chilling in my room watching TV. I have to be at the office at 9am tomorrow; hopefully it’ll go well!
