A Drive to Nowhere, July 26, 2011

The maps had been checked and with a lunch packed, off we went, south of Fayette State Park, towards the end of the peninsula where Streets and Trips showed a ferry to a nearby island.  First visited a small town, with a marina for their fishermen.  Then back through a maze of gravel roads in an effort to find that ferry.

Early in our exploring we decided that no ferry was running as not many used this road.

Our GPS confirmed we were on ‘a road’ with a ferry at the end…hummm.

This is what we found at the end of the road.  Yes, we wondered how this trailer got here?  Don’t think it came over the same route we had just traveled.   There was also a nice garage and outhouse, perhaps it is a hunting ‘lodge’.

Next item was to drive into Garden and find the Post Office to mail our Granddaughter’s birthday present, her special day is next week.  We also needed to make some RV park reservations, after calling several places, were able to find open sites for the next 9 days at two different parks.  We will be certainly glad when the middle of August arrives and all the family vacations are done, it will be much easier then to find RV parks with open sites without making reservations.

On our way back to Fayette SP, Bob stopped at a cemetery and I saw this nest.  From we can tell they were Osprey.

The pole they had built their nest on was taller than the nearby electric pole. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One more cemetery visit, this time within walking distance of our RV site.  In this cemetery, you knew who, but not where.  Each of the crosses had names, but were all piled together.  RIP

To take photos of these birs are not so easy, right? Greetings from China.

It is pretty optimistic to call that a road:)
