Mike and I were in desperate need of a vacation and decided to skip town for a few days.  We didn't do any research on the location (besides the hotel) and had no real plans.  This is unusual for me since I like to have everything planned...and then some back up plans.  Our only real agenda items were layout, walk on the beach, golf, spa and SLEEP!

As soon as Thursday morning rolled around, we were ready to turn off our blackberries and hit the road.  We got to Savannah, drove around for a little bit and then checked into our hotel.  The sweet hotel staff upgraded us to an amazing 3 room suite on the river- it was gorgeous.  I told Mike we should call some friends to join us because I didn't want to waste all the space.  That idea was quickly shot down.  We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing at the pool and enjoying the sunshine.  

 The hotel is directly across the river from downtown Savannah.  They have a cute little ferry that takes you back and forth every 10 minutes which was really convenient.  We got ready for dinner and hoped on the ferry.  Again, we didn't have a "plan" as to where we were going for dinner- NOT like me at all!  We walked all around downtown for a while looking at menus and just enjoying not having a set agenda.  The only negative for me...seeing everyone walk around with open containers.  You can walk around the whole city with any type of drink and I was so jealous of all the delicious drinks.

We finally settled on a great restaurant with a perfect table on their patio.  HIGHLY recommend Belford's for anyone going to Savannah soon.
Friday we headed to Tybee Island for a morning walk on the beach.  We took our time, talked and strolled the beach for almost 2 hours-glorious!
The rest of the day was spent laying out by the pool and doing nothing.  We headed to dinner that evening but it was just okay...nothing I would highly recommend.
 Saturday morning we woke up, worked out and headed our separate ways.  Mike had a morning tee time at the resort golf course and I made my way to the resort spa.  After my treatments were over, I considered going back in for a few more...I did not want to leave!  I headed back out to the pool and spent the afternoon laying out and reading.
Saturday night was my favorite dinner night.  Mike made us a reservation at Vic's on the River and it was delicious.  I wanted to put my face in my shrimp and grits but decided that wouldn't be appropriate.
We had a great rest of the evening just walking around the city and then hanging out by the river.

When Sunday rolled around, I was in a state of depression.  I wanted to stay on vacation and not return to the rat race.  But alas, we got in the car and headed back home.  We had such a great time, we decided to try and squeeze in another quick vacation before Anderson arrives.  We'll see when we can work that out.  Regardless, we are so thankful for some quality time together because we know like will change dramatically in less than 9 weeks.
