High Tea at the Gryphon in Savannah

Well, today I got to enjoy high tea in Savannah.  It was such a treat!  I highly recommend this tea room, the Gryphon.  It's an old pharmacy, that's been converted into a tea room, run by SCAD(Savannah College of Art and Design).  The great part of this story, is that I met this complete stranger, retired lady this past weekend, who was just visiting on vacation and she invited me to go for high tea with her in Savannah.  I jumped at the opportunity to go, since I hadn't been there yet, and I don't have any girlfriends here, since I am new to the area.
So, it was lovely.  My new friend, was super nice and told me all about her travels around the world.  She is one brave lady!  I admire her bravery for traveling alone to places she desires to go.  I love meeting new people, all friends were once strangers!


  1. That sounds like a great day and what an amazing tea room-those trays of treats look yummy! And how cool to be invited to tea by a well traveled stranger....I'll bet she had good stories.

  2. Thanks, we'll have to go, when you guys come down here. Yes, she was interesting, she went to Russia, so I wanted to hear about that. She said, there's a good tea room in Oregon. You'll have to look for one there.
