We got up early, ate breakfast at the hotel and headed for the Okefenokee Swamp. DH and some of the group did a short 16 mile ride before our tour. Okefenokee Adventures fed us a lovely lunch
then sent us out to get our canoes and kayaks.
After paddling around the practice pond, off we go into the canals of the swamp.
We had seen 30 gators when we turned around. Didn't count any more after that because we didn't want to count any twice.
There were a lot of birds and turtles around too.
We had a lovely day, no problems, and everyone made it back in one piece.
After our swamp trip, we head to Waycross, GA to check into our hotel and get dinner. We decided to take in a movie, so 4 of us went to see Gnomio and Juliette. It was almost midnight when we got in, so I didn't get to post. Then Sunday we drove home, picked up the fur baby, did laundry ..... Now I am going to bed.
What a great week, life is good.

This morning we arrived in St Mary's, checked into our hotel, and met some of the other riders for lunch at the Riverside Restraunt.
Then we went for a short ride around the area.
We got some fudge at the ice cream shop in town before going back to the hotel to get ready for dinner.
We had a group meeting and "happy hour" before leaving for dinner at the Seagle's Restaurant.
The town is beautiful, people are really nice, and drivers are courteous to cyclists. There are no hills here! Tomorrow we have a 33 mile group ride, it should be a piece of cake. Don't leave till 10, so lots of time to rest after dinner. Since we are not riding the tandem and I am on my single bike, there will be fewer pictures. Gotta keep both hands on the handle bars.
I met another quilter at dinner, she is also riding. She actually brought her machine and is sewing in the evenings. Hopefully we can get together tomorrow and I can see what she is working on. What could be better.
Life is good.
