We left out last Friday (7/1/11) around 5-6 p.m. and made the entire 9 hour trip that night, which put us arriving there sometime around 3:30 a.m. Saturday. Whew!
We slept for a few hours, got up, went and got manis/pedis and went to the beach (if you can call it that on St. Simon's.) Later that night, we decided to go out. My little cousin got off work around 9:30, so we headed to the island to do the tourist thing. Haha. It was a crazy fun night, that resulted in us on the beach after 2 a.m., and back tot he house after 5 a.m., among other things. I should have known we were too old to try to hang with a 22 year old, but that didn't stop us from trying. :-)
Remember that country song "I ain't never had too much fun"? Well, I think we definitely did, and paid for it all day Sunday, it was worth it though. LOL.
We spent the last few days of the trip, in a little more laid back approach, family time, beach time, and watching the fireworks over the river.
All in all, I had a great time and I hope Becca did too. I just love South Georgia! I spent a Summer there co-oping at the GP plant while I was in college. The Spanish moss in those big ol' Oak trees just warms my heart! It is truly a beautiful area.
Of course, we had to play with pictures while we were there, so I'll end this post with those. Enjoy!
