Fabgrandpa and I got up later than we had planned to start out on our trip. As we were packing the truck, we remembered that the time changed so it wasn’t quite as late as we thought. We drove down US Hwy 27 from Bremen to Columbus, where we got on Hwy 520 that took us all the way across south Georgia. We went through lots of agricultural land, where the farmers grown peanuts, cotton, sorghum, Christmas trees, and pecans. There were lots of pecan houses where you could buy nuts by the pound both shelled and unshelled, but they were all closed because it was Sunday.
We were going to Brunswick to visit a very dear friend who lives in Miami, but was in Brunswick for training. I can’t tell you her name or show you pictures of her because of the nature of her job, so I will call her Polly for now. She is so fun to be with, and has adopted Fabgrandpa as her brother, so I am her adopted sister-in-law.
I have to say that once Fabgrandpa got the hang of taking pictures with my camera, he did a pretty good job. I just had to remind him to take pictures when we saw something interesting.
This isn’t something that interesting, but it does show what the south Georgia area looks like. The roads were wide, straight, and pretty flat. There wasn’t much traffic, either, probably because it was Sunday.
We saw lots of cotton still in the fields. I wonder when they will be harvesting this field?
Sylvester’s welcome sign says they are the World Capital of Peanuts, but we say a pig statue in town.
The Satilla River is gorgeous!
We arrived in the town of Brunswick about 4:30 p.m. After checking in to our motel room, we met up with Polly and went out to dinner at Longhorn Steaks. It was sooo good to hear Polly’s infectious laughter! I wish we could see her more often.
