We enjoyed the area immensely and found our way over to the other side where we found the perfect beach, void of congestion and anything reminding us that we were in the 21st century. We spent some time frolicking in the waters and we were greeted by a dolphin swimming by. The pelicans too were enjoyable to watch as they would dive bomb the waters fishing for the day's catch.
We left that area and found ourselves ascending over another large modern day built bridge spanning over the waterways. We dropped into St. Simmons Isle and walked out to the pier at the end of the village where once again we were greeted by a large pod of dolphins. We enjoyed their peacefulness when we heard some ruckus at the other end. A fisherman had caught a 44" shark off the pier. We ran over and took some pictures before he threw it back. It was 4 inches shy of the requirement to keep shark. We've decided that we don't think it wise to swim near a pier as you may become shark bait.
We decided to take the recommendation of the gentleman in the convenience store and climb the lighthouse as there were some awesome views. Indeed there were and the breeze up there was divine. The men had some height challenges that they met head-on, but had no need to stay there for any length of time. It was time to get back to the RV and leave anyway, as the park attendant's attitude resembled Mrs. Jekyll, not Mrs. Hyde.
We wanted to also see, Sea Island, but it is now closed to the public. You must have an invitation in order to be allowed onto the island. The wealthy that live in and visit the Cloisters were tired of all the looky-loos and put an end to the useless traffic. We discovered the G8 conference was recently held there. It sounds like the wealthy and decision makers of today just moved over an isle or two from yester year.
We headed for Savannah where we plan on staying for a couple days. We settled in, ate some dinner and had some quiet family time.
