There are times in life when events and circumstances appear to conspire against us; this past Valentine's Day was just such an occasion. My wife and I have been married for 24 years and had been intent on celebrating our 24th together in a nice weekend alone. Unfortunately in January her father fell ill requiring her to travel to SC to be with him. Three weeks later with our anniversary rapidly approaching it became obvious to both of us that we would not be together this year. The first time in our long time together; "It was the worst of times..."
The following weekend I flew to SC to drive home to Tampa with my wife, she was down and feeling melancholy. Dad had stabilized and was doing better, but there was a long road to travel. I had arranged for a stop over in Savannah, I felt at least a single night in a nice B&B would be brief respite from the stress and strain of recent weeks. My travel agent had recommended the Amethyst Inn. With no real expectations I hoped for the best.
We were so pleased when we arrived, Jane was wonderful, welcoming us into her home and making us feel like we were part of her family. The room was beautiful and perfect for us. We stayed in the Magnolia suite and it was cozy yet comfortable with a full bath providing plenty of privacy. Jane and Rocky helped us find a restaurant and gave us perfect directions to the river. Normally we would have planned an entire weekend around a trip like this, but with commitments at home and a tight schedule we only had one night at our disposal. It was a wonderful evening though made all the better by Jane & Rocky.
Sunday morning breakfast was fantastic with Jane serving a wonderful quiche and her pecan praline french toast... I would suggest insisting she make this if you visit!! We had intended an early start, but so enjoyed chatting with Jane & Rocky we didn't head for home till late morning.
Jane, Rocky & the Amethyst Inn created an opportunity for us to leave our troubles at door, even if only for one night; and for that brief time... "it was the best of times..."
