I crossed state lines last Friday for a quick day trip to Savannah, Georgia. After parking illegally (unknowingly), we made our way down a steep staircase and onto River street. It was about 11am, the sky was clear, the wind was chilly but a step out of the shade revealed the warmth of the sun. We perused the typical souvenir shops and it took everything in me not to buy a box of pralines! Thankfully, free samples are a thing.*wink face emoji.
Our main objective was to take pictures for Emily's photography class. It was really cool to help someone else out with their camera. I consider myself a student of all things, so having the chance to explain something I'm passionate about felt really really good. It was the kind of role reversal that evoked pride and purpose.
We ate at Butterhead Greens Cafe on Bull St. and mostly window shopped on Broughton street. We spotted SCAD students walking in and out of University buildings and wondered how inspiring it would be to be an art student in a city with so much character!
Once our bellies were full and our SD cards loaded, we settled back into the car and made the trip back down south. It was a great day and an even greater break from the usual.
