Weekend at Fort McKinley, Georgia

My family is (and always has been) big on family outings. As kids, my sister and I were packed up each summer for our family vacation. Sometimes, we'd go to Disney World; other times, it was Canada, Pennsylvania or California. My parents included us on the planning, so we learned about the history of the places we'd see and thus, were a little more prepared to appreciate the things we were to see soon.

We still keep up the tradition of the family vacation even though we're much older and we've expanded (hello, son-in-law Landon!). Since college, we've gone to Louisiana, Disney World (as much as things change, they stay the same!) and the North Carolina mountains. I can count myself among the lucky few who enjoy spending time with their families, and have the means and time to do so.

This weekend, we headed off in true family-vacation style to Richmond Hill, Georgia, where we rented a cabin for a few days. We stayed at Fort McKinley State Park on the outskirts of Richmond Hill, and it was so pretty! It was so much fun to have some time to relax before school starts back next week.

We stopped at the Old Sheldon Church in Yemassee, SC, which was burned during the Civil War.

Later on Saturday, we went to Wormsloe Plantation in Skidway Island, GA, just outside of Savannah.
Give me a screened-in porch, a wooden rocker, a glass of tea and a book, and I'm a happy gal.
