Spring Break Photos

For Spring break, we went to Savannah and Tybee Island, then stayed in St. Simons and spent a day kayaking in Brunswick and ferried over to Cumberland Island for a day. (All in Georgia.)

I found a great letterbox series which features all of the St. Simons Island tree spirits (faces carved in trees). There are only 3 that you can still see. It was my first time there, and the letterbox tour was a great way to get around the island and see some things.

Cumberland Island was once owned by the Carnegie family and they built a mansion on it called *Dungeness*. These are the ruins. It's owned by the National Park Service now, and you can go over on a ferry. We had a great day there.

There are wild horses on the island, left from the days it was a working plantation. They were rolling in the ocean, galloping in the dunes and grazing around the ruins of the mansion. My horse-loving daughter had so much fun.

Savannah was fun too. I would have liked to have more time there. For some reason my kids don't like going into old cemeteries to hunt letterboxes or geocaches with me. . .

This is the lighthouse at Tybee Island. So cold and windy that day.

We ate lunch at a touristy crab shack on Tybee that had gators. Lots of gators.

Dh and ds chartered a fishing boat on Friday and caught a bunch of whiting, which we fried up and ate last night. Yum! I think I can sneak into the fridge and steal the last piece for a sandwich.
