Roadtrip! We are taking a couple of weeks off to drive up to New Hampshire. One of the downsides of living on a penisula like Florida is that all roadtrips must begin by going in the same direction, so for us the first 380 miles are always the same. Thus we decided to begin by a little bit of cheating - we set off half a day early, Friday afternoon... so to get the first 7 hours (and the whole of the pennisula) out of the way. Which means that we woke on Saturday to a sunny day in Georgia, and the "true" beginning of our road adventure.
We stopped and stayed overnight in Darien Georgia, primarily because we wanted to have a meal at Skipper's Fish Camp, which is a place we found on Roadfood.com. By a stroke of luck they were having a Harvest festival in downtown Darien (downtown being about two blocks long). The area around the dock was full of beautiful houses and tall oaks dripping with Spanish moss. So lovely.
We sat out on the dock as we had Billie with us. It was a bit windy but the sun was out and the view over the river and marshes was lovely. We ate delicious crab cakes, collard greens, shrimp & grits and perch. We had a short wander around the stalls at the festival and bought two lovely hand-carved wooden bowls - one made from mahogony and one from pecan wood.
It was a great start to our trip!
