Leaving the Savannah Visitor Information Center we drove about 80 miles south to the Golden Isles RV Park in Brunswick, Georgia. The Passport America discount price for two nights totals $37.80. Our site is nice and level, I’m able to use their wi-fi, and we have some good TV reception.
We did stop for gas at Flying J Travel Center. We love and appreciate that many of them have RV islands for folks like us. These special islands include a dump station and potable water as well as gasoline and propane, everything an RVer needs, plus keeps us separate from the cars and from the semis. Our expenditure for today was $89.50 for gas. The price was $3.279/gallon.
Once we got settled in we drove to town and found Mary Ross Waterfront Park. It’s right on the waterfront (duh) and these fishing boats were docked there. The musical play area in the shape of a boat kept us entertained for a while. We had fun playing like little kids with the xylophone-type things. The building in the background is a pavilion, not a lighthouse. There are security cameras in the top. Behind there was another building where the Farmers Market is. There were a few vendors still there and we bought some tomatoes and pecans.
A few blocks down the street is the Glynn county Courthouse, built in 1907, known for its exceptional beauty. We did go inside and walked around the grounds.
The St. Simons Island Lighthouse is one of five in Georgia. Built in 1872 it is still in use today. We arrived there too late to get inside, which is ok, I didn’t really want to climb the 129 interior steps.
