Day 8 Jan 13
Late morning we decided we better get out and do something – thus a drive to the mainland for grocery shopping and lunch. Today was supposed to see the temperature go back up in the 70’s although there was a 10% chance of rain in the morning and there were some slight sprinkles. It wasn’t a very exciting trip, but it accomplished the goals, and we were back in the early afternoon.
It was beautiful sitting out in the 70-degree-sunshine: we sorted pine needles, read, and enjoyed the outdoors, until we couldn’t stand the little biting gnats .
Looking for a good walk in the afternoon we headed back to the historic district to stroll the paths in front of the mansions of “the richest, most inaccessible club in the world” – the Jekyll Island Club. Club members included men such as J.P. Morgan, Joseph Pulitzer, William K. Vanderbilt, and Marshal Field! The homes are now owned by the state of Georgia and a large restoration of “Millionaires’ Village” is in progress.
Dinner was shrimp and lamb chops on the grill. Tomorrow we are making plans to spend the day in Savannah.
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!
