Finally some words to match the photos.

These photos were taken at East Beach on St Simons. It is one of the best beaches that I have ever seen - kilometers long, a couple of hundred meters wide, clean sand and people really enjoying walking, digging and exercising their pets. I really dislike walking on most beachs but this one was a great walk. The sand was firm under foot, it had a very gradual descent to the water.

I stopped to help some old folk with their group photos. They were happy to oblige and share their pleasure. East Beach East Beach

Titusville

We have moved on from Nettles Island to Titusville for the planned launch of a communications satellite at 6:58PM this evening. While at dinner we had a quick look at the NASA website to ensure that we had the time right. Oops, it has been delayed until March 15th. We will be gone - nuts. Launch Announcement

We are installed in a unit on Nettles Island. It is old and tired, unclean, and inhospitable. But for now it is home. We rented it based on photos on the internet and we will be a lot less likely to do that in the future. I have decided that we will not do any cooking in the place - I would not know where to begin. Joan saw the place before we arrived and warned us but it was all too late, we had made the booking and now we are living with it.

We are changing our plans though: there is a launch from Canaveral on the 13th and we will stay in Titusville for a couple of days to see the launch and visit the space centre and then we will head to The Villages to stay with some friends from Collingwood/Palm Desert who now own a home In The Villages. Our final stop will be with Marsha and Jamie on St Simon Island in Georgia - then we will head home.
