Georgia on my mind...!
Have heard back from my editor on Rye and Maddy's story and I've still got a bit of work to do - but not nearly as much as I had feared, so it's all good.
Am going to leap into those revs now so I don't miss yet another deadline (trying to be a good girl with those for a while), but thought I'd leave you with some piccies from my travels.
Highlights included the gentile elegance of Savannah in the rain, the hauntingly beautiful Sapelo island where we got a tour from the great-granddaughter of a former slave, the idyllic Open Gates B&B in the small town of Darien (Shrimp and Grits for breakfast, yum) and my mini-facial from local beautician Patty, Georgia's many mile-long beaches, and sunset over the swamp (complete with alligators and primeval scenery). Plus all the soul food, southern cooking and Mexican I could eat (and that was quite a lot, unfortunately!!)
Should add that I had a fabulous three-hour lunch with my fellow Modern Heat author Kimberly Lang in Georgia's Rome (as opposed to Italy's Rome!) but we nattered so much we forgot to take a picture (duh!).
Anyway, if you're ever in the mood for taking a trip down the open road with Otis Redding playing on the radio and sea, sand, swamp and soul food on the menu this is the State to do it in.
