Okefenokee Swamp – Stephen C. Foster State Park

Marty - Friday, 29 August 2008 12:46

We traveled down, but stayed in a hotel in Tifton on the way.

We had site #22. It was good!

Took a boat ride on Saturday. Lots of fun. Adventurous! Some tight turns. Not lots of wildlife, though.

Bunches of spiders on 1/2 mile long deck.

Went fishing with the boys while the girls did “spa night”. The girls even put cucumbers on their sunburnt noses and foreheads.

The boys didn’t catch a thing. We realized it was because of the alligators at the marina. Derek got his hook caught on the tail of an aggressive one. They were hungry for our bobbers.

Saw 4 alligators, 2 deer, 1 squirrel and 4 bats. Read More

Boys weekend at Ft. Mountain

Marty - Friday, 1 August 2008 12:42

August 1 through August 3, 2008

Boys weekend! Yay!

At Ft. Mountain State Park.

This was a first-come, first-served campsite. We scoped out all campsites. They looked full. #19 was open though, so took it. It was awesome! At the edge of the campers with a path to the lake.

Saw a deer while hiking the lake trail.

Climbed to Stone Tower. West Overlook was beautiful. Stone wall was cool & mysterious!

Thunderstorm on Saturday night was a surprise. Derek & I saw the storm from the Cool Springs Overlook. Cool lightning storm on the way to Chatsworth.

We fished. Matthew won with five fish. Marty got 2. Derek got 1. Nightcrawlers were tasty! Read More
