Chattachoochee, Florida

I was waiting for a part from Delorme to arrive and we hung around Ft. Clinch until  the mail arrived at noon.  The part finally came in and we headed out of Fernandina Beach around 1:30pm.  We had a 240 mile drive ahead of us and it started out fine until we ran into some stormy weather about halfway to Chattahoochee, FL.  Nothing serious, but it slowed us down a lot.

We pulled into Eastbank COE Park in Chattahoochee around 7pm and checked into our campsite after dark.  We were assigned site number 13 and I hope it brings us good luck.  We plan on being here for three days and leave on Sunday for Gulf Shores, AL.

On the way through Chattahoochee we saw the restaurant we are going to on Friday for dinner.  It is called "Butthead's BBQ & Grill".  I kid you not, that is it's name.  We heard they have super Prime Rib on Friday nights and it is drawing us in.  I will let you know how good it is.

The campground is on Lake Seminole which straddles the FL/GA border.  It seems to be a popular place as most sites are taken or reserved for the weekend.  The lake consists of 37,500 acres of water, 376 miles of shoreline and over 22,000 acres of surrounding land.  The area around Lake Seminole has been occupied by man for over 10,000 years.  Pictures to follow.
