Hitting the Road
Day 1: July 20, 2009
We got off to a rainy start. Here is me trying to load my clothes in the camper between rain drops. Luckily, I didn't get wet. We traveled up I-75 to 301 in Ocala and then to I-95 just north of Jacksonville. Of course, it stopped raining as soon as we got on the highway, which was good for the man with the fuzzy face driving, but not so good for me trying to pack.
I traveled in the camper to the first rest stop. Then I got in the truck because the sun had come out. I don't understand why these people have to stop to rest all the time.
The old lady and the man with the fuzzy face said this was the prison tour because first we passed Coleman Correctional Institute, then we went through Starke and last there was one outside Jacksonville.
We passed over lots of rivers once we got into Georgia. The man with the fuzzy face wanted to stop and fish, but we had to keep going.
We made it to Skidaway Island State Park around 4:00. We went for a bike ride after we got the camper set up, but then the sky turned black and the wind started to blow cold. So Auntie rode back to the camper really, really fast. (I was sitting on her handlebars.)
Tomorrow we're going to Downtown Savannah to see old houses. I don't know what the thrill is with old stuff....
Ta until tomorrow...
