We decided to stay here in Kingsland, GA for Christmas and then for the next four days. Suzanne has been having some pain in her lower back for the last few days since taking a tumble while playing with the dog on the 23rd. so on the 28th we went to a local Dr's office so that She could get an X-ray on her tailbone. YEP!! She broke her Coccyx! She is sitting, now, ever so un-comfortably on her do-nut pillow. :] On the 29th we packed up and drove to Tallahassee, FL.
We are just beginning our study of WW1 in school, but we couldn't miss out on the chance of visiting this museum that was just filled with information on WW2.
I hope the boys will remember the things we saw when the time comes. This museum was small, but packed with photos, newspaper articles and memorabilia from 1945. Their emphasis was on submarines, but they also had an interesting library for anyone wanting to do some research on records of the period.
This may be our last field trip for awhile :-( . Our house in Louisiana hasn't sold; so we will be heading back there to see if there is anything we can do to spruce things up, and get it sold, so that we can continue with the next phase of our trip.
Finally the weather co-operated and we were able to take the ferry to Cumberland Island; it was well worth the wait! For the first hour, a guide explained the history of the island, including showing us the ruins of the Carnegie estate; then we were left to explore on our own. It was beautiful! There are wild horses on the island that just roam free (something that made it a little exciting at times)! We saw evidence of coyotes, feral hogs and deer, but never met up with any. Parker and Hunter dipped their feet in the ocean, and were most amazed that we were the only people on the whole beach.
We've decided to stay in the area for the holidays; Bruce returns to work in a couple of days, to return on Christmas Eve. We've been so busy getting ready for Christmas, and trying to catch up on school work; that it was best to stay put for awhile.
