Day 25 ~ Juliette, Georgia

Day 25 ~ In which #KiwiChickInUSA gets a taste of Fried Green Tomatoes

Another hot, humid day today as we drove from Forsyth, Georgia down some beautiful country roads to the tiny town of Juliette, where one of my favourite movies ‘Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe’ was partially shot. If you’ve read my latest book, KISSING THE BRIDE, you may spot a FGT reference in it. 😉

We have been to Juliette and eaten at the cafe before, back on our 2009 road trip with our kids, so it was lovely to come back again. We did indeed eat more fried green tomatoes, but instead of the very relaxed pace we experienced last time the cafe was packed. Understandable being a summer weekend I guess, but kind of a bummer as I was hoping to sit and enjoy the atmosphere one last time.

Still love this place in 2016

And I loved it when we first visited in 2009.

After lunch we wandered through the tiny touristy antique shops and smiled in delight at the gorgeous Georgian drawl.

We’re spending the night in Atlanta (and we also checked out a couple more Walking Dead locations, but I’ll leave that for tomorrow’s post) and for the first time in a while the temperature has dropped with the rain and it’s actually very pleasant.
