We really didnâ€™t want to wake up this morning, even when the alarm we didnâ€™t set went off at 7 a.m. I slapped it and then picked it up and made sure it wouldnâ€™t go off again. No, I didnâ€™t throw it against a wall or smash it to bits. I just flipped the switch to the OFF position. Now maybe Iâ€™ll remember to check that each night. I turned back over and slept for another hour plus. Finally around 8:30 we awoke and began our day. I showered and dressed and then got on-line for a few minutes to check my mail and add a few things here to my blog. Then we went down for a cold breakfast of cereal and juice.
On over the State line and into Georgia. Actually, we barely got over the border when we turned off to make our first stop of the day.
Then north just a few miles to the ruins of Tabby Sugar Works. This historic sight is truly in ruins, and we really discovered why when we walk closer and saw how it was made. First, all of the wood that was used has long since disintegrated. You can see where it was put into the walls from the small holes left. But when you get close you can see that the walls were made of some kind of mud and sea shells. I got a few pictures up close so you can see. All that is left are a few partial walls and pillars. Even the areas that used to be the floors are worn and uneven where people have walked through the ruins.
From there we drove past the entry gates to the Submarine Base nearby and took a picture of the submarine semi-buried in the entrance area.
