Live Oaks at Newell Lodge

Live Oaks with Spanish Moss

For this Photo Friday, I want to revisit the wonderful daddy-daughter trip I took with Heidi to south Georgia in February. These stately live oaks — Georgia’s state tree — stood outside our cabin, hung with moss, and frequented by hundreds of robins. You can imagine the sound we heard in the morning before I stepped out to take this photo.

Here’s a photo gallery from our trip to south Georgia, including the Okeefenokee Swamp, St. Mary’s, and Savannah.

Here’s a Photo Friday look at God’s great creation through the lens of my daddy-daughter tour of south Georgia with Heidi last weekend. I’ve taken a bonding trip (aka preventative maintenance) with each of our children during their middle school years.

N-o r-e-g-r-e-t-s!

We stayed at the Newell Lodge in Folkston, Georgia where Heidi enjoyed a trail ride on Star, the mare you see here. A few hours before I took this photo, I witnessed a fascinating sight: hundreds and hundreds of robins feeding on the ground together. From Folkston we toured the Okefenokee Swamp, visited Saint Marys on the coast, and enjoyed some shopping in historic Savannah.
