I turned 30 today! Instead of gifts this year, I wanted an experience. So, while our children were at school, my husband took me to Savannah to explore River Street. We’ve lived close to Savannah for almost five years now, but we’ve only been to Forsyth Park once in 2018, and I went on a Savannah River Boat Cruise for a bachelorette party in 2017. But, other than that and in passing, we’ve never actually explored this gorgeous, historic city.
First, we went to the Cracker Barrel for breakfast. I love their French toast!
After breakfast, we parked on Rossiter Place and viewed a couple of the sites before descending to River Street.
After viewing these two out of many sites on Rossiter Place, we started walking toward the cobbled slope descent of East Broad Street toward East River Street. The trees were gorgeous along the way!
We crossed over from East River Street and walked the entire length of River Street.
We stopped at one shop toward the end of River Street, Black Rifle Coffee Company. We had heard of them before (on Joe Rogan’s podcast, I think). They’re “a SOF veteran-owned coffee company, serving premium coffee and culture to people who love America.” This particular chain was about 90% Nine Line clothing, 9% café, and 1% what we were expecting – coffee. They didn’t have the particular ground coffee that I wanted to try, Murdered Out, so we didn’t buy anything. Plus, we both got a bad vibe from them due to their poor customer service. But, I would give them a second chance, maybe when the owner (and his service dog, a friendly German Shepherd) is not there too busy “flirting” with his employees.
On the way back, the river seemed to beckon me to its edge, so we crossed over and meandered along the boardwalk.
Later, back at home, my husband surprised me with a beautiful chocolate ganache cake (my favorite!) and a money tree for my “crazy plant lady” plant collection! Both were from Publix.
Despite the overcast, rainy weather (which is actually my favorite type of weather), we had such a fun adventure today! Overall, my 30th birthday was a great start to this new decade in my life!
