Walkabout Camp & RV Park
Rain was forecast for today, but it was only cloudy when we awoke this morning. We hitched up earlier than usual hoping we'd miss the rain. As it turned out the clouds cleared, the sun came out, and it turned out to be a beautiful day without a drop of rain.
It was about 11:30 when we pulled into this park. What a pleasant surprise. It's a Passport America park for $20 per day which includes 50 amp full hook ups and all the sites are pull thrus. They have a new bath house and laundry. The pool is very clean and the park is located about a half mile from the interstate.
Since St. Marys Submarine Museum is nearby and not open on Mondays we decided to go today. It wasn't much of a museum and I guess I was expecting a lot more. At least the admission wasn't bad and they reduced it in half to $2.00 because they still have some damage from the hurricane.
Bill tested out the controls and decided he wouldn't want to be on a submarine.
According to the brochure I picked up at the welcome center--"More than 99% of all WWII War Patrol Reports are housed here, and files on nearly every submarine the United States has or has had in service are part of the collection."
I suppose if you were deployed on a submarine, it would have been interesting but someone that doesn't have any idea about life on a submarine wouldn't find it that interesting. We visited a submarine museum in North Little Rock and were taken inside the sub with a docent who explained about life on the boat. Comparing the two museums, the one in Arkansas was much more interesting to me.
The Cumberland Island National Seashore visitor center was across the street.
I thought these sidewalk markers were cute.
