Hanging out in the midst of 500 acres of wild park lands, it is easy to forget civilization is right down the road. With a forecast in the low 30's, Edward thought it might be pleasant to have a jacket. (Old one was tossed in NC with a broken zipper) Ms. Google directed us to a Dick's sporting goods less than 5 miles away, so off we went to Savannah. Edward had his heart set on a Carhardt but they proved to be illusive. Dicks had several $200 offerings but too $$ for Edward. The journey to Bass Pro Shop was derailed by Sears. Thrifty Edward saved a bundle & bought a jacket on sale for $30! After CVS & Kroger we were eager to get out of shopping world & reenter the haven of the park. Whew, too heavy a dose of humanity & autos for one morning!
Skidaway Island forests are very different from NC. Still have lots of majestic pines but the understory is dominated by palms. It is way cool, seems very tropical & exotic. You might notice we have on jackets & hats so not really that tropical! The sun is out & we are thankful.
Buying firewood at a $1 a stick is not going to be a nightly habit, but we wanted to hang outside in the late afternoon & a fire seemed a warm idea. Please notice that we used our selfie stick. Thanks!
Life on the road is treating us well. We walk a lot & eat very simply & generally have fun with each other.
