We decided to scoot away for a few days in May, and returned to one of our favorite places, Blythe Island, near Brunswick, Ga.
It’s a little county-owned rustic campground with a lake, ample camp sites and a picturesque dock overlooking the deep water.
We were so happy our new camping friends were able to join us here! Donna and Benny are just awesome. We met on our last trip to Tybee Island and I was so hoping they would be able to come on this trip! It makes camping even better when you have buddies to hang out with.
This camp is quiet and tranquil, and a place where locals come to launch their boats.
I took this group of photos on our first day, as I’m clearly fascinated with how this guy got his boat into the water!
Later that evening, the four of us went to what MUST be the most out-of-the-way seafood restaurant known to man. It was about 30 miles away at a little known marina. We’ve been here only twice in 16 years because it’s over an hour from home.
This restaurant / marina needs about $1.5 million spruce up. It was sad to see that it’s really gone downhill.
Once we got back, Ninja Man (aka Driver) put his big screen (aka sheet) up and watched the NFL draft. He streamed it from our Dish Network at home via his iPad, via a projector. I’m forever impressed with his talents.
We camped from Wednesday until Sunday- just enough to miss home but also just enough to wish we never had to leave!
Ninja Man hosted a movie night and our friends brought Avatar. Oh my goodness this movie was so vibrant after dark on the outdoor “screen”.
Before we left home we picked up our organic FarmBag and we had quite a selection of veggies to grill.
Here’s what I did: wash, chop, season, butter and wrap.
After a lot of fun with our friends and long relaxing days (I took a zillion naps) it was time to pull in the slides. And yes, that is our trash on the hood of the truck. If we put it on the back we are 99% certain to forget it. This has been proven many times.
All in all, it was a great trip with sweet friends and easy days. Oh, and my previous post about the “Truth”- well, Travel Day was SOOO much better going and coming this time. Maybe, just maybe we are getting the hang of this thing.
Thanks for visiting and God bless.
