Our alarm clock goes off this morning. “Breakfast is on!” Merv is cooking his famous blueberry pancakes.
Last night there was a hard freeze. Why is it always cold when we head south? The sun comes up and it is a beautiful day!
We say goodbye to Barb. She heads back to Ocala today. We visit with Merv and then head again to St. Simons Island. It is a beautiful area.
Fort Frederica National Monument is today‘s destination. We watch the video. We learn about the battles fought in the 1700’s. The British defeated the Spanish. I get my passport stamp.
This national monument is about archeology. James Oglethorpe founded Frederica. This site preserves the remains of his British town and fort.
We walk down the seventy-five foot wide Broad Street. We see the ruins of homes and the relics found at each. The foundations were made of a crude burnt oyster shells concrete.
There are oak trees covered in Spanish moss. There are orange trees covered in Spanish moss. I wish Spanish moss photographed better.
At the end of Broad Street, we reach what remains of Fort Frederica. The fort overlooks Frederica River. I take more pictures. John heads to the water. This is a small park but we enjoy our stop.
