The Golden Isles of Georgia

One last stop in Georgia, then we’ll be heading into the sunshine state for the winter.  For our final exploration in the peach state, we ended up near the Golden Isles of Georgia.  On the southern end of Georgia’s scenic coastline is a collection of barrier islands.  With their history, natural beauty and huge variety of recreational opportunities, St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Little St. Simons, Sea Island and the mainland port of Brunswick make up the Golden Isles.  The area is surrounded by expansive golden marshes, miles of sandy beaches, breathtaking views, maritime forests and generations-old oak trees draped with spanish moss.

Back to nature while checking out Savannah, GA

We were so looking forward to the next destination, our home base near Savannah, GA. And we were not disappointed as we settled in at Fort McAllister State Historic Park, less than an hour’s drive from the city.  The weather forecast for the next few days said cloudy, a little rain and maybe some wind.  We hoped for better,  but didn’t mind too much since our site #11, (check out our header) was just what we were looking for, after being in too many crowded campgrounds lately.  This park was nestled among giant live oaks and beautiful salt marshes on Savage Island.  Since it’s off-season we had practically the whole place to ourselves, and the weather actually turned out much nicer than predicted.  Yeah!

What do you think they’re doing?

When you’re hanging out close to nature and wildlife, you are bound to see amazing, amusing and fascinating things that wildlife do naturally.  For instance, we’re not sure what these Northern Mockingbirds were doing just before they flew away – maybe some kind of mating dance?  Steve tried hopping around in front of me, and I wanted to fly away too!  Watching them closely made us think they must be daring each other to cross the line or perhaps flirting or maybe just dancing to our delight.  What do you think?

Have you ever been locked out of your RV?

Have you?

We had exactly that unpleasant experience recently.  It was late in the afternoon on the day we were under a tornado watch, and the winds were already picking up.  We were busy stowing anything that might get blown away, and Steve had the barbecue going to get our chicken cooked (no storm will come between Steve and his trusty Weber!).
