Meet Innkeepers, Susie and Stuart

Stuart and I are Southern born and bred.  We learned Southern hospitality from our parents, grandparents and neighbors, not by reading Gone with the Wind.

We do not reinvent southern food since it doesn’t need to be reinvented with exotic ingredients.  We speak fluent Southern and know when to use fixin’.  These were some of my mother’s favorite expressions, “For Crying out Loud”,  even “Goodness gracious”. A real Southerner says “Everybody” not everyone, or someone.  It’s a Southern thing.

I’m just having fun before going to the parade.  Now, I’m fixin’ to go watch the parade [Mardi Gras Parade on Tybee Island].
