While driving down the highway, we got a call about showing the house at 10:30 today. Great…let’s sell the house while we’re in Florida. I know Nancy and I would be thrilled. Later in the day, we got another call saying they wanted to come back and see the house again this afternoon. That’s two couples that have come back at least two times. Our time is coming!!!
Back to vacation!! We got through Charleston, SC before rush hour got too bad. It was still dark. Just south of Charleston, we stopped at Burger King to use the bathroom and buy a couple cups of coffee. It was the worst coffee we’ve had in years. I think it was brewed yesterday or maybe last year ;o((
Nancy was driving the Pleasureway Van and I followed her in the Tahoe. We talked occasionally on the walkies, but for the most part it was a quiet and uneventful trip.
We have to take two vehicles because the van can’t hold all our toys. Our Tahoe carries the bikes, kayak and all the gear associated with them…helmets, life jackets, pumps, paddles, etc. Throw in all our hiking equipment and now the Tahoe is full;o)) It takes both vehicles to carry everything needed for a month long trip of fun in the sun!!
We arrived at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in Brunswick, Georgia
just before lunch time.
It is a nice campground, about 100 sites.
All the sites have full hook-ups
with cable TV and on site WIFI that works really well.
It is a little pricey at $36 per night but
we were happy to have a great site for our first night of vacation.
In addition, we got site 13… Nancy’s favorite number.
We’re off to a good start!!
We left home so early because we thought we might be able to put the kayak in this afternoon. This campground has a lake and also has a dock and boat launch on the South Brunswick River. Well, as you will see, the lake is a little low and we were told that the River has very strong tides and can be a problem. So, we decided to play it safe and instead went for a nice leisurely walk.
Not sure what type of duck these are.
I could not get a better shot even with my zoom.
These Muscovy (I think) Ducks were just they opposite.
We crossed the bridge and walked to the other side of the lake.
You can see our site from there.
Next, we walked through the campground to the other side
along the South Brunswick River.
View across the Salt Marsh.
After enjoying our time on the dock by the river,
we decided to try and find the only geocache in the park.
We followed the start of a mountain bike path and
There it is in the underbrush!!
With the afternoon temps in the mid 60’s and sunny,
it was a great start to our vacation.
Tomorrow we will travel about 200 miles to
Silver River State Park near Ocala, Florida.
We plan to meet RV-Dreams friends, Sherry and David,
to do a little kayaking, hiking, geocaching, laughing
ice cream eating ;o))
