First off I want to get a short brag in, two of our grandsons hunting deer in Wisconsin were both successful bagging their first deer. Alex who is 18 got a nice doe and Noah,15 got a nice 8 pt. buck.
Deer hunting in many Wisconsin families is a tradition, and is probably the hardest thing for me to have parted from. Ask Wendy- she has heard me whimpering like a dog wanting to go outside. I guess I'll get over it.
To help get over it we trekked off to the beach for the week. Mandi has rented a place on Jekyll Island. Jekyll is located off the coast of Georgia and was only a 6 hour drive from her place. We will be spending Thanksgiving here with her, husband(Pat) and his mom(Gail).
The place is only a block off the beach and a big bonus -- fresh fruit trees on the property that are ripe for picking.
So the week will be spent with walks on the beach and exploring the island.
