New York City, Washington DC, Savannah, Georgia.

Heidi and I had been talking for years about going to Savannah, Georgia. I had also never been to Washington D.C., so we figured we’d couple that with my new favorite American city, New York and take a couple of weeks spring break. I had lost touch with my friend Lee from North Carolina, so I thought maybe we would drive from DC down to Savannah an stop in to see him. Turns out, he and Tiffany had moved to Manhattan. Hmmm. That works!
April fools day, 2008, we flew into JFK, grabbed the sky train and the subway to Manhattan. Just like real New Yorkers, except they usually take cabs…
Our hotel was in Murray Hill, just a couple of blocks from the Chrysler Building.
This is a pretty lousy photo, but I gotta say I was pretty stoked to go to my favorite camera store!
Had to stop by the west village to visit our friend Rosanna. No photos of her, though. Boo.
Grand Central Station is a must-stop.
This intersection was very close to our hotel…
Heidi had heard of this pickle shop, so we ventured down to the east village to check it out. Those big containers are all full of different types of pickles.
We met Lee and Tiffany, but for some reason didn’t take any pictures. Weird. But it was really great to reconnect after maybe a decade. Super cool people!
We did get good advice from them- visit Coney Island. Although it was cold and pretty deserted, we had a great time.
Can’t pass up on a Nathan’s hot dog!
Back to Grand Central Station to meet Randy and Chris for dinner. They had moved to Connecticut and took a 60 minute train down to meet us. Had a great time. Still no photos of them. Weird.
The next day we were off to Washington D.C. We stayed in the Hotel Rouge- a great Kimpton hotel. Our room was huge and very cozy!
After a LONG day of walking and sightseeing, our room was great!
After freezing our butts off as tourists, arriving in Savannah was a warm welcome!
That’s our hotel!
The alligators were out in force at the Savannah Harbor golf course. I played it a week before the Champion’s Tournament. It was great! I was the first one out in the morning.
We did a home and garden tour- Heidi loved it.
…to the top!
