The sound of rain pattering on the aluminum woke us up around 5, so by 6 there was nothing left to do but rise & shine. The dreariness has us thinking of pulling out of Skidaway. We have been here 5 days & I wonder if that is my attention span. Would it be easier to settle in if it was warm & sunny outside? Our plans are to travel to the OKeefenokee swamp on Sunday for a few days of hunting gators & birds. Pictorial of course. Then on to an Army Corp site on a lake near Tallahassee, But back to today.
Grocery shopping was high on the list - no half/half!!! Skidaway Park shares this island with a very exclusive residental development so I figured the grocery would be top notch. Alas, not so. Half way though the list we paid for a few items & drove several miles to a decent Kroger. Always shopping in a new store is a challenge; we never no how big, if any, the organic section will be. Harris Teeter in Porter's Neck is now the god of grocery stores.
The sun graciously appeared & we hit the trails. So silent & comforting to be in the woods walking about. Maggie enoys it so much: she looks like a young pup eager for new smells & always on the lookout for a squirrel. Walking 4-6 miles a day is easy enough because the terrain is flat. But i am tired at the end of the day for sure!
Today's laundry experience was wonderful. The machines are in the bath house about 100 ft away & since no one is around, we left our laundry unattended!!!!! A far better laundry than the Mrytle Beach
campground. I felt a lot less homeless.
You will notice there are no more pictures of the forest or the trees. Nothing new to see around here.
