We left for camp on December 27, eager to have a week of just doing little to nothing at all, for the exception of winding down 2013 and welcoming in the new year.
Every trip we take is a preview of life after retirement, and this one was just wonderful.
In the previous post I outlined the truth of how hectic it can be just to take this show on the road – and while that hasn’t changed, more of the truth is this: we had a great, great time.
We found this great county-owned and maintained park a few weekends before our camping trip.
Located near Brunswick, Jekyll Island and St. Simons, Ga., it’s really a beautiful park.
Soooo we are minding our own beeswax when we see this:
Manatees! Right whales!
Oh. We were so stinkin’ excited!
And lo and behold, this guy swam by:
It was a dolphin – or a porpoise- we didn’t get close enough to know. But whatever it was, we were just delighted to see it.
And we saw this guy too:
Isn’t he just majestic? There were other pelicans and seagulls (see pix above) but this one was a loner and seemed to watch out for the others from a safe distance.
And then some “family” shots of us and the pups.
At the end of the day we enjoyed seeing Baby Beluga all lit up for the night.
Along with the fire, it was doggone neat looking. I think we’re going to like this just fine.
Thanks for stopping in and God bless.
