A beach day, and some new friends!

Jekyll Island Campground
Jekyll Island, GA

Thursday we stuck around the RV,
doing wash, defrosting the freezer,
and George took out the ice maker to replenish the ice.

Yesterday we took a drive into Brunswick to the local Walmart.
To get there you drive over the Sidney Lanier bridge,
which takes you over the Brunswick river on Route 17.

We picked up a hoagie from a great shop,
and proceeded to get set up on the beach
at South Dunes picnic area.

It was another beautiful day in the 80's with a nice breeze to keep us cool.




We saw a couple big ships out in the water
but the pictures didn't turn out very good.

When we got home, I saw we had an email from
some fellow RVers across the row from us.
Joe & Dodie Kiegel wanted to pick our brains
about full-timing. 
They saw our blog address on the back of Harvey!
We wandered across and got a nice tour of their Cedar Creek fifth wheel.
They are hoping to go full time by the end of the year, if their house sells in time.

We had a great time talking, and ended up pooling our dinners together.

They are leaving today to go back to their home in St. Mary's, GA
We hope to see them again down the road!

Today is our last day on the island.
We're going to get one last bike ride in,
then pack up for our departure tomorrow.

  1. Thanks for the beach pictures. I am really missing it. Great idea to put your blog address on the back of the Rv. How did you do it? Seems to me there are lots and lots and lots of people fulltiming or getting ready to. Really crowded campgrounds coming soon. :-))
