As we travel we have to introduce you to our new friends. This is that time for our new friends in Georgia.
On Tuesday morning the 25th we were looking for a marina to get a pump out. Not the coolest of things to have to worry about but a necessity. So we also were looking for a marina that we could get a few groceries as well. Unlike most of the other states Georgia is not lined with condo’s and marina for there length.
Tam went to Mark & Diane Doyle’s book to find somewhere. We could only find a couple without going a long way out of our way. But she did locate one at Delegal, GA. As is our normal practice Tam called ahead to make sure of the facilities we were looking for. She spoke with a gentleman named Billy. He informed us that they did have the pump out but the grocery store was a 15 min drive by car from the marina so that would not be available we would do without.
We resolved to stop for the pump out anyway. He had to give us special directions because it was a shallow approach and unless we came at high tide we would not make it in.
After we got there Billy said they had a car coming to pick us up to get our groceries. After the pump out he said there was no charge for it. Normally it is $5 to $10. What awesome people there. Lola was there with the truck to pick us up to take us to the grocery store. What more could you ever expect from total strangers that opened the hospitality door to us.
I only regret that we didn’t get Lola into the picture. A special thank you to Billy and Lola at Delegal, GA. If ever you are in the area stop in to see our dear friends at Delegal. If ever we are traveling back that way you can be sure we will stop again. The best Marina on the ICW.
A few side notes yet. We have seen some awesome wildlife in the last few days. I don’t think a day has passed when we haven’t seen dolphins. Our problem with them is we are to busy watching them to take any pictures. Also you never know where they are coming up next. The Bald Eagles have been everywhere.
We saw this tree from a distance and it took us awhile to realize it was full of Egrets.
Thanks again Billy, Lola, and everyone at Delegal, GA.
