What a shock; talk about out in the boonies! We are fifty miles from anything & everything, including cell service. For us that means no internet as well!!! Culture shock extraordinaire. No google, no GPS, no weather apps, no email, no data, nada. But, we have cable! Figure that out? How cable could be out here is beyond me; we could not get Time Warner to run cable 100 yards to Blue Heron.
Deep in the heart of Dixie the rebel flag flies at a lot of remote homes. Yikkers!
The park is awesome & obviously, very water oriented. A guided tour of the swamp in a pontoon boat is on tap for tomorrow! Yippee, I feel completely safe. A ranger at the wheel & pontoons to keep even the biggest alligator from tuning us over. Nothing could go that wrong, right? Edward’s idea to rent a canoe is a lot scarier. Canoes love to dump their occupants into the water, the vessel is much lower to the water & closer to the 12,000 alligators that call Okefenokee home, & a captain in unfamiliar waters. Plenty could go wrong, right? But the stillness of the swamp & the erie quiet will probably draw even me into the swamp. They probably don’t lose many campers.
