Finally on the road-Naomi says. After lots of hugs and good-byes for now off we go down the road on our big adventure of the East coast. We are loaded with goodies, Thanks to the Greens for the yummy meat tray, we will really enjoy that. We are so lucky to be able to take our 8 yr. old granddaughter, Naomi with us for this summer trip, A great big Thanks to her parents for sharing her with us like this. Tim & Hope- you are great. Afer a short trip, we arrived at Golden isles at a great passport America park which gives us 1\2 price with our membership. They have a great pool and we will take a dip or 2 in that plus we are going to Sapelo Island for a tour of Hog Hammock, a gullah community of freed slaves from years ago. We took a ferry boat to the island and were met by the grandson of Cordelia Bailey, the lady who wrote a book on the history of this community and was the last generation born,raised, schooled and still living on the island. It was really interesting to learn how they have lived here so self sufficent. We also got to see the old sugar mill from the plantation times when the slaves still worked here before they were freed and given some land for their town. The sugar mill was made of something called tabby, which is shells and mud, boy had it lasted a long time. Thomas Spalding owned it first, and then R.J. Reynolds bought the plantation and used it for lots of famous guests to come and stay to relax. We were lucky enough to get to see the mansion as our guides cousin was cleaning at the mansion, they now rent it out to public groups. Then he took us to the beach, never have I seen such a great beach with only 3 other people and 2 dogs on it. What a great place to play in the water and walk the beach. Dave & Naomi found a huge Horseshoe crab on the beach and I saw some dolphins playing in the water. A super time for all of us. Next we head to Savannah,Ga.
