At our campsite on Skidaway Island

We even had a small swamp

Anne had a super shower in the heated shower room.

Off on a hike on Wednesday

Spanish moss



The salt marsh


We had a campfire and Tom cooked a hot dog on it.

But dinner was turkey (left over from Thanksgiving).

We love the Georgia State Parks and we were surprised that we had made up for our late start. We actually got to Georgia as planned on Tuesday so we could have a leisurely 2 nights for R&R. Instead of staying at Ft. McAllister as we had in other years, we tried Skidaway Island. The salt marshes are not visible from the campsites, but there are a lot of hiking trails. We broke out the frozen turkey and dressing from Thanksgiving and had a feast. Anne found the shower better than the KOA with a warm room and lots of hot water. We slept well and while the temperatures required that we use the furnace (the heat pump does not work in below freezing temperatures), we were warm and snuggy.

On Wednesday, we had a "lumberjack breakfast" and went on a 3 mile hike to the salt marshes. Cold weather still followed us, but at least it was above freezing at night.
