If you happen to drive between Savannah and
Charleston, I highly recommend a stop in Bluffton, SC
if you like fresh oysters. The local ones from the
Chechessie (SP?) river are second to none, including
Appalachicola Bay, FL, which I used to think were the
best in the world. You can either pick some up at
local roadside seafood markets or ask in a restaurant
although Bluffton is a bit short on those. If you
stop in Beaufort or visit Hilton Head, inquire as to
the origin of the oysters. Settle for nothing else.
And Beaufort is a very interesting place. I highly
recommend the horse drawn carriage tours. A good 3
hours and very informative. Absolutely wonderful
she-crab soup at Bistro Dejong, dinner only.
In Savannah, the tour buses are good but this is truly
a walking town in the historic area. Fascinating
history and architecture. And all the squares are
absolutely wonderful, each with its own statue or
monument. If you like good ole' Southern cooking like
Momma used to make, there is an excellent restaurant
Lady &Sons, but be prepared to stand in line and no
reservations. Enjoy Savannah and the Low Country.
