I saw two birds only. One is a Carolina Wren, on the trail, and the other is a large raptor in a nest on a pole in the marsh
After we returned from our hike and had lunch, we drove over to the park ranger station and purchased an Annual Georgia Parks Pass. This card gets us into any Georgia State Park at no cost. It also costs us five dollars to camp. A state outdoor group also gives a card good for one free night's camping... value twenty five dollars or more. Since I'm entering into my upper middle-age group, I qualified as a Senior and instead of paying the usual fifty dollars, it cost only thirty dollars. We'll be camping outside of Jackson, Georgia on Friday night, so will use it then. We're going into a shop there to get a lube an oil change for Shorty. It's hard to believe, in a way, that we've gone over four thousand miles so far. If one averages that out over the three months (tomorrow) that we've been on the road, it's not even forty five miles a day. That distance could easily have been done on a bicycle! It's the stopovers that make a trip though and give us something to blog about. That is the enriching part of travel. What and whom one sees on the way. We've been to twelve states so far, with at least that many more to come. We're still excited and very appreciative of your emails, calls an comments. It's what life is all about: people.
Tomorrow we'll do the laundromat thing again and take a walk on the Avian Trail. Sounds like a place for birds; I hope so. Dave would like that. We've seen so few birds over the last few weeks that I'm anxious to spot several more. We're a bit disappointed that we've seen so few shorebirds. Lots of shoreline yet to go on our adventure, so there's still hope.
Thanks for checking back...
