One of the first things we noticed was an inordinate number of crows flying around and cawing. We recently watched Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" (for the hundredth time-this move never gets old), and it actually was a bit unnerving to see all these crows everywhere! Whole trees were empty of leaves, their branches instead filled with the black birds. Who knew we would be witness to a murder!
The town is a pretty town with the live oaks overhanging the streets
We stopped in the visitor's center (see Bev, we do pay attention!), and then rode around the town, got reservations for the ferry to Cumberland Island for the next morning, and ate lunch (or tried-the food and service were not great and we ended up only paying for about half the bill), and then stopped at a local used book store to have coffee and use the internet. You get free muffins when you buy coffee at the Read'Em Again used book store in St. Marys. The coffee was okay, but Bob loved the muffins! Even brought one home to have for breakfast the next day! The woman in the shop was very nice and told us a lot about the town and places to eat and things to see. We ended up buying some books-hard to resist getting three paperbacks for $7.99!
A nice place to visit for a quiet day. We saw a sign that said future site of the waterfront multipurpose community center-based on where it's located, I'm not sure how many "active" memberships they will be able to sell (check out the picture).
