River Street and Bashful

07 Nov


 No trip to Savannah can be complete without taking a stroll down River Street.  It was a beautiful day, a little overcast but the weather was perfect. It didn’t start to sprinkle until we were in Albert starting back to Tybee Island – it was that marvelous!

Of course, Bashful came along this date to check out some of his ancestors in the cobblestones up and down the street.  Can you believe Albert, mom’s Smart car, made it down these bumpy roads – let alone it made it all the way to Savannah and Tybee Island – snorts.  But Albert was a trooper and we are discussing my little Bashful now – snorts.


B20131027-182254.jpgashful looked up the road and then again back down the road. It was a hard decision to decide which way to go – there’s just so much to see, places to eat and things to shop for.  Knowing mom/dad like I do, I just *know* the first place they went to was River Street Sweets located at 13 East River Street.  They just grinned when I asked and said they weren’t telling.  It’s okay.  I already know.  

And of course, we all know that none of the delicious pralines, bear claws or pecan brittle made its way back to me.  Of course not.  Knowing mom/dad they took it back to the motel like it was a box of gold and threatened everyone with bodily harm if they even glanced at that magical box of deliciousness.  And once in the hotel room, they probably attacked that poor defenseless little box like it was Christmas snarfing down every delectable bite.  I know my humans… not that Bashful told me anything of the kind.  Rolls piggy eyes.  And of course, no pictures because then there would be witnesses.

So after all of the window shopping up and down River Street, they got hungry – go figure.  There’s a place that they love to go to called Fiddler’s Crab House located at 131 West River Street.  It is definitely on the list of places to visit every trip.  Mom and dad like to eat downstairs in the bar area – the upstairs is the restaurant.


Of course they had Bashful with them who we all know is extremely under-aged to be in fine bar, there are age limits.  But mom, Mrs. I’ll-talk-you’re-ear-off-and-get-to-you-know, immediately struck up a conversation with the ever so charismatic bartender, Nolan.  He allowed the little rock to enter and partake in a great time.  And let me tell you, they had the best of time here with Nolan.  In fact, Nolan and Bashful hit it off right from the start.  And you know conversation just *had* to revolve around me – the bestest southern little piggy you could ever meet in the south 🙂

I’m sorry to say that mom/dad didn’t take pictures of the delicious food.  Shame on them for getting all excited, cutting up with Nolan and getting my Bashful into further delinquency – snorts.  (The food was out of this world!  If you are ever in Savannah, you must come here to get the buffalo shrimp.  It is the best anywhere in town!… so says mom/dad.  Again I wouldn’t know… no piggy bag for Bacon – nope.  None).


But before Bashful, mom and dad could leave, they had to have at least one photo opportunity.  Nolan was just the guy to help out with the suggested ‘bar’ photo.  Do you get it??

Whoever thought that Bashful would have such a sweet and innocent name and turned into such a hardcore rock? snorts.

Now’s the time to give Mr. Nolan a proper shout out.  Nolan, if you are reading this and I hope you are – you were greatest this day.  You brought such entertainment to mom/dad and most of all to Bashful.  The food was delicious and your service was outstanding.  Mom and dad can’t wait to come and see you again in the very near future. And hey psst – how about a piggy bag for the oinker?

      Snorts – mom/dad are the same way. They attacked those bear claws like they weren’t going to be making anymore ever. It was kind of a funny scene of destruction. But hey, I guess I kind of do the same thing with the foods I like the most. <> snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh most definitely you should have a piggy bag next visit. I’m surprised that Bashful didn’t make sure your parents brought something back for you…..some friend HE is!!! 😦

      Well, they did bring me back all of the pictures and stories and they might have – shuffles hooves – brought me back a little stuffed turtle. They didn’t *totally* forget about me. But they did forget about me with food and a piggy bag 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

      Mom/dad highly recommend this place. Eat in the bar and ask for Nolan. Tell him that Bacon sent you. He will fix you up and treat you right my friend! XOXO – Bacon

    Looks like a few drinks were served “on the rocks”…. 😉

    BTW, I finally saw a car that looked just like Albert the other day! One can’t help but giggle at it, but I bet it would be fun to drive…

      Just imagine this little oinker in the back part looking out the window when you saw it 🙂 Mommy absolutely loves it and says it is one of her all time favorite cars which daddy finds amazing. You see, daddy couldn’t believe it when mommy traded in her *sports car* for it – snorts. I think he cried a little bit that day – snorts.
      Look at the drinks again my friend and think of George Thorogood. 🙂 My mommy, she is the creative thinker.
      XOXO – Bacon

        LOL, I’m not up on my potent potables, so it didn’t hit me at the time, but I know what song the picture is referring to now!

        So next Friday come, I didn’t pay the rent
        And out the door I went!

    We love hardcore Bashful! Too funny. It sounds like a most memorable trip and a great place to visit. Next time you make SURE he remembers you too Bacon.

      I know, right?! Mom/dad should surely think of me next time and bring me back something in a piggy bag to eat. And you know what? When they were on the island, they found out that there are actually TWO piggies there that people have that live in homes. I’m thinking mommy needs to touch out to these people and make friends. That way, next time I can visit with them while mom/dad are at the beach. What do you think? XOXO – Bacon

    A stuffed turtle!? wow. Sheila is very partial to a glass of beer, not any beer mind you, maybe next time they can save a thimble full for you.. Now do you wear a coat in the winter? I am wondering if i should make Sheila a coat.. c

      Snorts – I’m backwards. Since I stay inside, I tend to shed in the winter time. I get a full coat in the summer. I know – I’m backwards. It’s because I’ve adjusted to the inside of the Hotel Thompson. I’ve never had beer. I had some grape Koolaid one time… maybe I need to ask mommy if I can have some. Bashful gets to drink. Why can’t I, right? XOXO – Bacon

      I know! He has a way of finagling in with some good company and having an awesome time… especially for someone who in under age to be in a bar! Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Looks like Bashful’s visits to Easy and Stuart have turned him into a hardcore drinker!!
    I hope you at least got some treats for not getting a piggy bag

      Snorts – I know, right? He’s got such a calm and serene little name to turn into a kind of pebble who likes to have a lot of fun! He did get kind of tossed that night at the bar. The next morning, he couldn’t even lift his head. It was a hoot watching him stagger around – well that’s what mommy said – snorts. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
