Shelley: What was your favourite part of Savannah? Was it the day time tour?

Or watching the stars walk the red carpet on opening night at the 2013 Savannah’s Film Festival?

No idea who who this is. Anyone???

And…. to be honest, I have no idea who this is. But he looks famous. Anyone??? Never mind, I looked him up, he’s Bruce Dern.  (2013 Savannah Film Festival)

Shelley Smith from "Honey did you see that?" :)

And of course, famous blogger, Shelley, from “Honey Did You See That?  🙂

Or the “GHOST TALK GHOST WALK SAVANNAH WALKING TOUR?”

The Hampton Lillybridge House is still haunted to this day.

The Hampton Lillybridge House is still haunted to this day. Apparently one of the ghosts is a little boy who loves to play practical jokes, like flushing the toilet when you’re not quite finished. Oh! Ha! Ha! Ha???  (Historic Savannah, Georgia)

This restaurant used to be an old Irish boarding house. Many women who have used the restroom claim to have heard a woman sobbing.

More haint blue paint to keep the spirits out. What if the spirit was already in the house before the door and shutters were painted??

Can you spot the energy orbs on this old brickwork? It's OK. Neither can I.

Can you see the energy orbs emanating from this old brick wall?  Thank goodness neither can I. (Historic Savannah, Georgia)

Can you see the face above the railing? What about the figure on the door? Oh boy.

John near the end of the tour.

John, near the end of the tour.

John: I’m not sure. Definitely not “The Haunted Tour.” In fact you need to delete those pictures.

Shelley: Not going to happen.

John: Didn’t you hear what “Whimpy Jan” (our Tour Guide) said? “If you take a picture of a ghost, it will follow you. Forever.”

Shelley: Oh for God’s sake. She was just trying to scare us. What we need to do is tell each other scary ghost stories before we go to sleep. Maybe then we’ll actually see one of those ghosts we learned about.

John: Absolutely not.

Shelley: Are you saying, “No” because you don’t know any?

John: Of course I do. But it’s time for bed.

Shelley: Because if you don’t know any, you can always build on one of the ghost stories that Jan shared with us. Why don’t you make up a new story about one of the transitional ghosts from the William Kehoe House?

John: No. I’m not doing that.

Shelley: Matt and Andrew (Our sons) would.

John: Matt and Andrew wouldn’t have gone on the tour. They see ghosts in their bedrooms even now. And they’re in their 20’s.

Shelley: Ashly (My daughter-in-law) would have.

John: Ash is not here.

Shelley: Amanda? (Ash’s sister)

John: You just don’t know when to quit, do you?

Shelley: Ahhhhh. Now I get it. You actually believe in ghosts, don’t you?

John: Of course I do. I also believe we should leave them alone. And so should you.

Shelley: But, I want to see one. I have an idea. I’ll tell Ghost Stories and you just listen.

John: No. I have an even better idea, I’ll let you keep the pictures if you agree to drop this.

Shelley: Are you serious?…  Are you that scared?… Oh my God. You are that scared.  Fine. Good night.

John: Thank you. Come on. Give us a kiss good night.

Shelley and John: Mwahhhh. Love you.

3:00 AM….

Shelley: Huh? HONEY! DID YOU HEAR THAT?

  1. I *love* Savannah! I was a flute teacher in my former (that is, non-Norwegian) life; when I lived near Atlanta, the School Music festivals were held in Savannah every year. Loved touring around, but I never made it on the ghost tour!

    And Jeremy Irons. Drool. I’d consider that photo op worth a thousand smiles – and risk a ghost waking me at 3 am! 😉

    • Apparently it was nothing. 🙂 We stayed in the parking lot of an information centre in Savannah. The night was filled with sirens, cars racing around… Also very scary! Promise to not bring, but can’t speak for the boys!

  2. You make everything sound fun and full of intrigue on this trip! I like your sense of humor, the way you use marriage, age and every little irritating thing about men, to make it all sound both funny and yet, endearing. Your love for your hubby shines through!

    • Oh you guys. There was a family with us who were on their third Ghost tour. I didn’t know that Victoria has those. Bet you a cooked meal at Xmas that you can’t get Andrew on one. Hey, good luck with that turkey. 🙂

  4. Hey Shelley. Great post — I’m so glad you mentioned going to Savannah. Since I’m about to start a sort of ghost story with the Savannah setting, Do you mind if I re-blog this?

    As another prelude to the next incarnation of “The Three Ingredients” I’m reblogging a post from the amazing Shelley at “Honey Did You See That?” She mentioned having gone with a ghost tour in Savannah. How could I resist reblogging that fabulous post?

  6. Great post! Thanks to Teagan for sending us here. It sounds like great fun. If you have a chance watch ‘Nebraska’. Bruce Dern is fantastic in it.

    • Thanks so much for dropping by. We started to watch “Nebraska” but was so awful to watch how his family treated him, we turned it off. Others have said it gets better. Might have to have another go.

  7. A loonnnnnnggggg time ago, we thought about buying a house in Savannah. The smell from the paper mill drove us away. So we decided to live in San Francisco, instead. There are other smells here, though, but we’ve been here 18 years, so we must have gotten used to them. Very entertaining tour. Charleston is interesting, too.

    • Ohhhh all those ghosts you could have made friends with. I don’t remember any awful smells, maybe the mill shut down? Love San Francisco. We took the wrong bridge in and ended up downtown dragging our RV behind us. You should have seen everyones’ faces. Wayyy too funny. We did a tour of Charleston too. Also such an interesting city. Am missing being on the road!
