Day 9 Jan 14
Today was a trip into Savannah – the weather had soured a bit and we only made a half-hearted attempt to walk the river-front, old-town, shopping district -- and no attempt at all to walk the famous 10,000-step Factor’s Walk. We did that all last year on New Year’s Eve and you can look back in my blog for December, 2017, to view pictures! We ate lunch at a crab shack that we had enjoyed on New Year's Eve, and then headed back to our campsite, arriving by 2:30.
Day 10 Jan 15
We headed out today to view the Georgia Sea Turtle Center rescue facility – it was closed! Nothing to do with partial government shut-down -- they are doing some special remodeling and closed for 2 weeks!
We had not yet walked the Great Dunes Beach, so we headed that way. As I’ve said before, we are not big beach lovers, but we do like a chance to walk along a beach when the conditions are right. It was a little chilly at 50 degrees, but it was quiet, not too windy, and not crowded. There is no doubting that the salt air is invigorating!
We also stopped by Poteets Fish Market again to pick up several pounds of shrimp for the freezer, and two (Caribbean) lobster tails. We’ll take them home to enjoy with family!
Mid-afternoon we got a message from Caleb saying that another large snow storm was to sweep through Van Wert on Saturday and Sunday. When we looked on the computer for a bit more detail, it appeared that it could begin as early as Friday afternoon with some icy/mix precipitation.
Things on Jekyll Island have crawled into slow gear as far as sight-seeing opportunities go, and the weather is not warm enough to just sit idly outside the camper for long periods. With all that in mind, we decided to prepare to leave for home tomorrow and Tom is out winterizing the camper – a job he can do in one hour flat.
So, this effectively brings our winter retreat to an end, and I am going to give myself the additional treat of not adding any more to the blog! Sometimes, it gets to be a burden! This last post should see us arrive at home on Wednesday afternoon!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2018 25' Airstream Serenity with Salsa interior and front twin beds., and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
