I’m tucked away at the Fort Clinch Campground on the banks of the

|My campsite is right over that dune|
The campground here feels exceedingly isolated – it’s down a winding narrow almost 3 mile drive from the park entrance. It’s beautiful and quiet here at Land's End.
It’s been a blustery grey day, very different from the weather I’ve been experiencing. It’s a great night for a campfire, that’s for sure. My water heater is humming away right now; I don’t want to wash up with cold water tonight!
Stopping for hot coffee and some crossword time this AM was fun as usual. Wonder if I'll ever get tired of it?
I also stopped off at
I wonder how
look in a ranger hat?
One of the highlights of the day happened as I was motoring along and my GPS pipes up “Turn left. Board the ferry”.

So I strolled around ostensibly admiring the buildings and the waterfront but really trolling for she-crab soup. Or something like it. I was stopped for lunch earlier in the GDB and thinking how nice it would be to have a fresh seafood dish for dinner and this fella pulls in right in front of me. It was , literally, a good sign.
They have lunch specials from 11 – 2 so maybe I'll show up tomorrow if I'm not traveling to Cumberland National Seashore. I may do that on Friday so I won't have to double-back to get to Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge. I want to stop off and visit fellow blogger Judy on my way home.
Back to today. After I got hooked up, I did some housekeeping. This is a broom and dustpan that I won as a door prize at the Roadtrek rally and it’s really come in handy what with all the sand I’m tracking in the house. My new step really helps though.
I was thinking just now, walking around the campground, about how far I’ve come since August when I picked up the GDB; I was all eager but anxious too. It was a big step, of course.
But here I am now, two short months later, learning every day about how to live on the road and gaining confidence in the operation and care of my rig. All I can say is that it’s been a deeply satisfying few months. I’m sure you all know what I mean!
