I've grown quite fond of Atlanta, but being landlocked has been a real problem for me. I need to be able to see the ocean. A lake or river is not enough for me. I need to be able to look out at the endless horizon the ocean provides.
One of Skye's homeschool teachers, Doug, organized a trip to his family's place on Tybee Island. Yes, where the hurricane landed. Luckily, his place survived without too much damage.
It was a heck of a lot of fun, hanging out with the kids, playing card games and scrabble, although in the case of scrabble, it sort of became a chess game between Doug and myself.
I didn't go for an ocean swim because it was cold and even though I've jumped in the north Atlantic in the winter while everyone else was in full length wet-suits, I just didn't feel that call this time around.
I was more than happy with long walks on the beach.

We also got to hang out a little in Savannah, a town I love, a light house tour and go on a kayak tour. It was just what the doctor ordered.
Jon Danniells is an adventurer and traveler, a teacher and student, a husband and a father, a cook and a farmer, a "week-end warrior" (very amateur athlete) and has not earned any money on these labors of love.When I googled myself what showed up first was my IMDB listing, which is basically a resume for my 20 and then some year career in film, for which I fortunately do get paid.
