Pacific Coast Mama Heads South - part 2

My Flip camera footage turned out to be too bumpy so instead I'm loading clips. The quality isn't fantastic but hopefully the images will translate.

All in all I had about four hours in Savannah. Not enough time to capture all the great sights. Hopefully, I'll be back soon.

If you need a bit more southern exposure check out Entre Nous. Written by a west-coast-gal-gone-southern with a focus on Savannah design news and more.

Pacific Coast Mama Heads South

Just back from a week in South Carolina and Georgia. Those Southern Gals have all the style.

We stayed on Hilton Head Island where the ocean was a crazy 84 degrees, the weather beyond balmy, and the skies mostly blue save a thunderstorm or two. A one day excursion into Savannah turned out to be just what the design doctor ordered. I'll load a video in the next day or two but in the meantime here are a few shops worth visiting if you have a chance.
