Our journey from Jacksonville to the west coast of the USA started by heading north across the state line into Georgia to visit Okefenokee Swamp. This area is normally a haven for wildlife and also provides a decent seven mile loop road with board walks into the park.

We ended up at a fun restaurant in Pensacola Beach called Peg Leg Pete's of course sea food was their specialty and know for their oysters. We had Oyster's Rockefeller as an appetizer, Jerry had shrimp salad, I had a grouper fillet and salad, all delicious! It was a great day at Pensacola Beach.
