Similar surroundings

Your pictures are great quality and the area looks almost identical to the North Florida Gulf Coast area where I grew up (Cedar Key, Suwannee, Steinhatchee, etc.). Now that I live in Tennessee maybe I should make a trip to your area. It sure looks like home.

Yeah this area always reminds me of the coastal area around St George island state park. Speaking of steinhatchee I gotta make a trip over that way for the scallop season. I met some people that told me stories of snorkeling for scallops and I haven't been able to get it out of my mind since!

It's quite a lot of fun to dive for them (usually in less than 5-10 feet of water). Cleaning them....not so much. During the colder months you can also pick up oysters at low tide.

Nice!

Looks like you had a great little trip.

How comfortable is it sleeping in the hammocks?

I'm thinking about taking my kids(grown ones), and doing the Batona Trail here in S. Jersey in the spring. It's a 3-4 day deal. Would they be okay for that?

Some nice pix BTW. Thanks for the RR.

Hammocks are very comfortable. Check out the hammock forums for all the info you need. Also the ultimate hang is a book I'd recommend.

I packed my old SierraDesigns tent away a long time ago and bought a very early production Eno Eagle's Nest that has become my go to camping abode...love the hammock and sil tarp combo for rain.

Nice RR, great shots!

Great pictures. Cloudy gray weather tends to just wash my pictures out. You made it work for you. Gives the pictures a surreal feeling.

That is a perfect weekend to me. Motorcycle ride, simple camping and a few good pictures to remember it by.
