We're on our way! This is a massive and beautiful bridge that is part of the F.J. Torras Causeway. The Causeway carries you over a series of salt marshes and tidal rivers (there are four of them) that make Saint Simons Island, well... an island. :)
Another massive bridge along the way, in Jacksonville FL. These bridges are tall enough to let container ships and massive car carriers pass underneath.
Once we reached Jacksonville there were some errands to run so The Mr. dropped us off at a mall where we window shopped and Little Mr. got some lunch. I don't know if every Subway has this, but the Subway in this mall had breakfast available all day. This little flatbread sandwich with egg, ham, cheese and tomato cost me $1.69 and Little Mr. treated me as if I had given him a big pile of candy to eat and started gobbling it up, tomato first of course since he loves them.
Yup, he also got dessert!
It was HOT there and we were not dressed for the occasion.
Insert photos of a full Costco shopping cart here and footage of both of us running around a busy Costco like chickens with our heads cut off. Costco carries different things regionally, and this was definitely a learning experience for us. Several grocery items that were staples for us in Bellingham were either totally different here or unavailable! Thankfully our trip was successful and next time we go it should be easier to make our way around the store since it will be after holiday season as well.
On our way back to the island, the lighting was dreamy.
Two tired boys conked out!
The bridge on the causeway looked a lot different than it did in the morning.
This shot gives you an idea of what the salt marshes and tidal rivers look like. They form a beautiful maze around Saint Simons Island.
When we were back at home, we decided it was well worth it, but that we would definitely be making this trip less often than we thought! However, I love having a full pantry and certain items in bulk quantity, so I am so glad we went.
