Where I stayed
Dreher Island State Park
We arrived shortly after noon at our destination
We had lunch and I checked in on the 'Net and then we took off for a hike. The trailhead was about a mile from sixty-six, so we walked. The Little Gap Trail, as it's called, is just over two miles round-trip. The trees are barely leafing out, but there were a few dogwoods in bloom. No wildflowers at all, which was a disappointment. There is lots of moss at the base of the larger trees, so north/south is not difficult to ascertain. The trail has a lot of ups and downs, so we got a decent work out and burned up a bit of lunch. We saw a primitive shelter near the far end of the trail and near it an elaborate "lake cottage", both of which are in the photos. Quite a contrast. We also saw the first turtles we've seen since we were in Mississippi. Man I love to type that word! Reminds me of grade school when we were learning all of the state capitals... Ah, dose were da days!
I got one photo of a small boy playing with his truck. It turned out good and reminds us of how much we enjoyed our grand-nephew, Joshua, when were in Georgia. Gotta love the youngsters...
As usual, we're back in camp now, with Lynnie reading and I doing what I do. Oh, I included a short video of Shorty's interior, so you can see where we've been living these months. I also did two other videos of the area. I hope that you enjoy them... CYA tomorrow!
