Here's a Throwback Thursday to the time when we visited the famed Red Fort in Delhi, at the perfect time of the day: magic hour....aka sunset and just imaging the Mughal emperors of India living here...
Here I am capturing the shot below for Instagram:
Definitely at the top of my list of places to visit in Savannah was the Wormsloe Plantation. That visual of the famous Forrest Gump road lined with live oak trees and hanging Spanish moss was forever emprinted on my mind and on a drizzly morning it looked exactly how I imagined....
The drive (I wanted to walk) down the live oak road is about 1.5 miles, with nothing but Spanish moss above and gravel beneath and it's completely magicial.
Once at the end of the road, there's a small museum with artifacts that were unearthed at the plantation. Then it's a short walk to the tabby (material used to build the structure) ruins...There are a few nature trails and look-out points along the way, as well as a pile of "tabby" material, now worn down to the ground.
To imagine the plantation the way it once must have been...
The Palomar is a Kimpton boutique hotel with the one in Chicago located in the heart of downtown. The Magnificent mile is a stone's throw away, as is the famed Billy Goat Tavern and Millenium Park. Everything you want to see is just around the corner. It was the perfect location to be for Rebecca Minkoff's #RMRoadtrip at Nordstrom.
Luxurious, contemporary and ecclectic in design with wonderful service and attention to detail, like the animal print bathrobes, perfect for wearing to the rooftop pool (also can I have those at home please?)
An addendum to this post is: The Changing of the Guard and Not Being Able to See the Changing of the Guard.
Thus photographs of what I was able to see.
