Temperature, Low 52 Degrees; High, 74 Degrees

The Doctor Is In

What another beautiful day we awoke to. It was a bit chilly to begin with but within a few hours we were back up to a comfortable temperature. We’re really enjoying the days here but of course we are also looking forward to again getting back on the road tomorrow. But before we do that, let’s finish our visit to the Turtle Center on Jekyll Island.

The operating room. Here is where they perform whatever is needed to rescue a turtle.

On to the actual hospital.

Some of their current patients.

Once again, I’ve only been able to highlight the fantastic work that this Center does for sea turtles everywhere. If you are ever on Jekyll Island I encourage you to take a few hours and tour the center yourself. You will never regret it.

Another great day is over on The Road of Retirement. It seems like we only arrived here yesterday but in truth it has been five days. Tomorrow, we are back on the road heading now to Myrtle Beach State Park. While there Ms. Barbara is really looking forward to seeing one of her long time friends who she hasn’t seen in several years. OK, time to pack and then get some sleep. Until tomorrow.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!


  1. Thank God there are ppl to care for the injured and sick turtles. We toured a turtle rescue in Marathon in the keys several years ago. Most were there because of humans carelessness. I’d love to see the turtles hatch and run to the ocean. Have a safe trip tomorrow.
