After having a great time in Virginia, I headed to Georgia to visit family, friends and doctors! As I usually do, I stayed at Fort Yargo state park for a couple of weeks in November. Then I headed to the north Georgia mountains and stayed in Dillard while visiting my mom in mid – late November.
I was in Dillard when the South East had a lot of wildfires and a couple of the fires were too close! One of the fires was 6 – 8 miles away from my RV park so we had a good bit of smoke depending on the wind. Another fire was not far from my mom’s condo.
Sunrise, but this is smoke not fog!
Sunset, again not fog!
The wind was keeping the smoke away from my side of the road!!
They used helicopters to get water from a lake and drop it over some of the fires. This was taken out of my mothers sunroof as we were driving down the road.
For a couple of weeks in December, I went back to Jekyll Island. This is a campground that is not one of my favorites, but I love the area so I put up with the campground!
While there, they had an extremely high tide.
On some of my bike rides I saw several Hooded Mergansers, both male and female.

Another bridge on a foggy day -
Skimmers, one of my favorite sea birds, taking a bath.
After Jekyll, I headed back to Dillard where we had a family gathering for Christmas.
Wow, I am late but I finally finished up 2016. In Jan and Feb of 2017 I am visiting state parks along the Gulf of Mexico in Florida and Alabama. I am currently in Topsail Hill Preserve state park where it is 65 degrees, so as soon as I post this blog I am going to bike to the beach.
