Nov 29, 2019 - Darien GA, Cathead Ranch RV Park - On the road again

Happy Belated Thanksgiving to all! The month of November sure flew by! We shared a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with Doris and Bill at The Little Tea Room and Bakery in Garden City SC. The food was awesome, and the setting was unique and very comfortable. Our turkey and ham meal was home cooked. Delicious! Fantabulous! We finished preparing the condo for our friends that will be staying there for the winter, did the final “pre flight” checks on the motorhome, and headed south on The morning of Friday November 29th. Our first stop is at...

Oct 17, 2019 - Ft king George and Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation Historic Site

Finally sunshine and comfortable temps, it's been overcast and rainy for quite awhile in Georgia. Today we visited Fort King George that was established very early in our history, before Fort Frederica, a British installation. It was placed near Darien in 1721 to ward off the French, Spanish and Indians. Due to the marshy conditions it was difficult to maintain and the soldiers stationed there were older "invalid" and the mortality rate was very high. Outside the fort is a cemetery where many are buried. The fort was important in...

2019 trip

Oct 16, 2019 - Sapelo Island

I signed up for the Sapelo island tour that leaves at 8:30. Ray stayed behind and I took the tour. There was a small group and overcast but the tour of the southern part of the island was great. Lots of people on the ferry as residents and workers at the wildlife and estuarine research centers go to work on the ferry too. We went to the ruins of a sugar cane processing center, Reynolds mansion was built in 1810 and can be rented by a minimum of 16 people. We also stopped at the 1820 lighthouse and Nanny Goat beach. We also saw parts of the...

Oct 14, 2019 - Inland harbor rv park

We arrived without incident and the rain started this evening. This park is in a good location but the asphalt is in very bad condition - we are in a good site however that is level and we are getting all Dish channels to come in. The people behind us at the Speedway recommended B&J's seafood for local fresh caught shrimp. It has rained all day. I ordered a new cell phone for Ray - will arrive tomorrow. Cat food came today. We stayed in the Eagle and went out to eat. What great food. We took their advice and ordered the shrimp basket that...

Jan 14, 2013 - Southward Bound - Day 3

Monday, 14 January 2013 It was warm last night, the heater never came on during the night. It was warm enough in the motorhome that we turned on the AC at 6:30am. Monday was another good travel day, we left Fort Mills at 8:15am, and we travelled just under 300 miles. As seems to be the norm this trip, the roads were wet this morning. By 10am the sun was out and the temp was almost 73 degs, I was in shorts by noon, and the dash AC was running by 1pm when the temp reached 78 degs. Tough traveling in the winter :-) We’re at Inland Harbor RV...

Leaving Crystal River We arose early today as we anticipate leaving for our trip to Massachusetts. We were putting our final touches on packing the RV and trailer before we left to have breakfast with our neighbors, Mal and Judy. After returning from breakfast we continued to work on loading the RV and trailer and closing up the house for the 6 months that we will be away. We said our goodbyes to our other neighbors, Tom and Ginny and Chip and Marilyn. We pulled away from the house at 1:30 pm and headed for my brother's house near Darien,...

Jun 18, 2010 - Fort King George, GA

Today we visited Ft. King George in Darien, GA. The fort is located on the banks of the Altamaha River and was intended to keep the Spanish from moving into Georgia from Florida. Almost no British soldiers died in battle at the fort but many soldiers and civilians died of disease during the six year period that the fort was actually occupied (1721-1727). Sawmill activity at the old fort site continued up until 1925 when all of the timber in the area was depleted.

Apr 18, 2010 - Blessing Of The Fleet

Today was another fun and busy day. We went to the Blessing Of The Fleet Festival in Darien, Georgia. The Blessing of the Fleet is a three day event held every spring in honor of Darien's shrimp fleet. Darien's streets come alive with food and street vendors, an amusement park for the kids, live entertainers, fireworks, Art-In-the-Park, and more. We enjoyed shopping at all the vendor booths and the walk along Waterfront Park. The park has magnificent old live oaks draped in spanish moss on the Darien River. I will let the pictures tell the...

Feb 1, 2010 - Day 2 Savannah to Darien

We spent the day in Savannah. Weather was cool but sunny with blue skies. Decided to tour the historic district and waterfront via trolley. The guides were very informative. There were 15 stops throughout the city, and we could get on and off the trolley as many times as we chose and stay at any site as long as we liked. Very nice way to see the sights and would certainly do it again. We didn't know how beautiful and historic that Savannah is. Even saw Paula Deen's. Very overrated. River street is very nice (especially the pralines), but...
