Having skipped the upper panhandle parks, our drive to the Atlantic Coast was over 280 miles as we bid farewell to Florida and entered Georgia on our way back home. As we drove around the big cities over the back roads, we noticed that spring was in the air and in the blossoms. On a previous trip to Florida two years ago, this park had been a possibility, but we opted to stay at Fort Clinch, just across the state line in Florida. With fewer kayaking possibilities (like none!) than Fort Clinch, we decided that the Florida side of the river is the better choice. There is a navy submarine base just down the road from the park and the river has been dredged to accommodate the underwater boats. This causes very strong tidal currents making kayaking outright dangerous and even upsets the fishing as the line is drawn away from the place you cast it. Tom lost the "hook, line and sinker" on one cast and still did not catch any fish.
We made one (last?) change to our itinerary, changing Edisto Beach in South Carolina for Hunting Island just across the bay on the recommendations of campers we met on St. George and rave reviews on line. The iPhone really comes in handy to make these changes since it offers internet without being tied to a WI-FI source. We have had excellent ATTT digital edge service at most places and have made reservations on line with the iPhone.
