January 8, 2005, Saturday. Our destination today is a fun trip to Lazy 5 Ranch. We took a horse drawn cart, with buckets of food for the animals. The “Lazy 5” is chock full of hungry animals: water buffalo, giraffes, goats, pigs, deer, etc. etc. It was a neat place for the young and the “young at heart”.
January 9, 2005, Sunday. Off we go to Savannah. We had reservations at Skidaway Island State Park, a few miles SE of Savannah. We managed to get in a short bike ride along a nature trail before dark.
January 10, 2005, Monday. We drove to the outskirts of Savannah parked the Bothan and headed out on our bikes, to explore. Lots of lovely squares, mini-parks, with huge oaks carefully draped with Spanish Moss by mother nature. We biked to Bay Street and River Street for a wonderful view of old Savannah.
Bob located the house from the movie, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” as well as the bookstore. We hooked up the bikes and drove to Tybee Island, stopping at Pulaski Fort. Biking on Tybee was fun, seeing the gulls flying and the surf pounding it
was a good day.
January 11, 2005, Tuesday. We are on the road again, headed to Amelia Island. Stopped along the way to visit an old plantation.
We have reservations at Ft. Clinch State Park. When we arrived there was enough daylight to bike and walk the beach some.
January 12, 2005, Wednesday. Wanting to see sunrise, we were up and down to the beach early, early. Just before dawn some clouds and fog moved in but it was still a nice experience, as we walked the long fishing pier.
We drove into Fernandina Beach and found a nature trail to bike then on to the main beach. The weather is unusually warm high 70’s. We biked into the town visited some shops and biked back to Ft. Clinch. Bob was off to do some mountain biking, while I opted for some reading on the beach. What a luxury in January!
Bob got his kite out and we had some fun flying the kite on the beach. Back to reality, time to do laundry, clean the bikes etc.
