South for the Winter

As I mentioned before, we just returned from spending about a week roadtripping down south for some R & R and enjoying slightly warmer temperatures than Chicago has to offer this time of year. We ended up leaving town a few days early to avoid Snowpocalypse 2011, which actually worked out well for spending an unscheduled day exploring Louisville and much shorter driving days going south. We got to stop by Pearl Fryar’s Topiary Garden (which I wrote about a few weeks back), and also the Button King Museum, a charming little roadside showcase of the work of a man who basically just loves covered things in buttons. We spent the majority of our trip in Savannah and on Tybee Island, Georgia, where we walked on the beach, visited historical sites and basically had the run of the place– nobody really visits in February, which meant singing as many karaoke songs in a row as we wanted and private tours. Awesome.

Below are a few photos from the trip–

Overall, it was a great trip for catching up with some old friends, eating grits and checking out roadside oddities. And really, what more can you ask for?
