Bikes on the Beach

6:30 a.m.

I got up early to walk the dogs like usual - it was a cool 35°.  Truman again wanted to go right back but Charlie wanted to keep going.  He and I ended up going out of the campground and across the street - I saw a sign that read Clam Creek Picnic Area.  I was intrigued so we headed that way.

It turned out to be an awesome walk!  We first walked through towering oak and pine trees, dripping with Spanish moss.  We walked past a horse stable and then the trees gave way to smaller palms.  The marsh was on one side and we actually saw two eagles flying through the air as the sun rose and painted the sky a beautiful color! 

You can barely see one of the eagles in this picture:


We walked all the way down to end where we were greeted with an awesome fishing pier going out into the inlet. 



Charlie and I kept walking over a little bridge to the beach area where there was a sign for wildlife viewing. 


We turned around there since we had walked quite a ways an…

2:30 a.m.

Yes you read that right!  Truman was up at 2:30 a.m. needing to go outside.  We think he ate some acorns that didn't agree with him.  Thankfully I heard him scratching at the door.  Even though I didn't want to get up and go outside in the middle of the night, I also didn't want to wake up to a mess!  It's a good thing I love the little guy!

6:30 a.m.

I was up again to take both bogs out for their morning walk.  It was a cool 49°.  After we got back and they were fed, I actually curled up on the couch with Truman, while Charlie took the recliner and we went back to sleep.  I was feeling a little under the weather the night before and didn't feel up to blogging.  A little extra sleep felt good.

8:00 a.m.

We were up and eating yogurt and fruit for breakfast.  We decided that since we didn't have to check out of Skidaway Island State Park campground until 1:00 and our next campground was just two hours away we would stay put for …

Rainy Sunday in Savannah

Sunday, December 2, 2018

6:00 a.m.

It rained ALL night long!  I'm not kidding!  And it is loud in an RV.  But somehow we managed to get some sleep.  It was still raining when I got up but Charlie didn't mind going for a short walk.  Truman, on the other hand, refused to go outside in the dark and in the rain. At least it was warm outside - 60°

9:15 a.m.

Time got away from me as I worked on the blog and edited the video of us riding bikes.  Suddenly we realized we needed to go - we had tour reservations at 10:30 and it was 25 minute drive.  I fixed sausage and eggs while I got ready and actually ate it in the truck while driving lol!  Clinton helped me!

10:15 a.m.

We had just found a parking spot that I could actually maneuver the truck into - and happy surprise - parking is free on Sunday in Savannah - when I got a text from our tour guy saying because of the rain, the tour was cancelled.  Dang it!  We put on our rain jackets, grabbed the big umbrella and headed out anyway.  It w…

Traveling to Georgia

6:00 a.m.

My last early morning walk with the dogs in the great state of South Carolina!  Today is moving day and we travel two hours down the coast to Georgia.  We have absolutely loved South Carolina.  It is such a beautiful state and has so many different types of geography - from amazing ocean coasts to beautiful mountains to serene lakes.

Some of our favorite memories of South Carolina:
