Last Day in Savannah

Sunday was our last day in Savannah.  We went to brunch at 700 Drayton located inside the Mansion on Forsyth Park...


We each had the exact same thing... Peach Pecan French Toast with Bourbon Vanilla Custard and Extra Crispy Applewood Bacon

oh, and of course a side of grits to share

Here is the outside of the Mansion on Forsyth Park

The inside isn't what you would expect at all.  It is all very modern, but the mixing of the styles is really pretty.  I would love to stay there sometime!

After breakfast, we walked across to Forsyth Park and the fountain



Then we walked over to the Mercer-Williams House to buy tour tickets so that we could be sure and get in on the first tour of the day.  After we had tickets, we walked back to the hotel to finish packing and check out.  Here are some random, but I think neat, photos from our walk...



After checking out of the hotel, we drove back over to the Mercer House for our tour.  If you read, then you may know this as "the house" from "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil".

The bottom room on the left is the study where Jim Williams shot Danny Hansford.  If you don't read, but have seent he movie, then that is the same room where Kevin Spacey shot Jude Law.

After our tour, as we were walking back to the car, I looked through an iron gate into a private backyard, and this is what I saw...

I promptly marched back to their front door and asked if I could move in!  Just kidding, but I really did want to!

And that my friends, was my Girls Trip 2009!
