Day 83 – Savannah, GA

Savannah was not on my list of places to stop, mostly because I had been there 3 years before. But I wanted to meet a cousin for lunch, and it worked better to stay a night rather than head to Atlanta. When I think of Savannah, I think of a walkable place with tons of parks and trees – also a place where carrying a drink to go is commonplace.

I got to town on a Friday, found a reasonable parking spot and met my cousin for lunch at the Public Kitchen. We chatted and got to know each other a bit. She’s a talented artist and I’m excited to see where her skills take her in life (you can find her work at We found another place for a cheap beer and that was dog friendly for another beer and more conversation. It was fun to get to know her. For the rest of our afternoon, Jasper and I found Moon River Brewing Company to relax for a bit and read. And finished the day off at the Treylor Park for these great pancake tacos.

Walking around reminded me so much of the time I was there before. I was in the area for training, and was able to partake in their Slow Ride bar tour, make new friends, and visit the Olde Pink Restaurant. It’s amazing how a place so small can pack in so many bars and restaurants, and yet feel like it has a strong sense of history and a culture all its own.
