This morning brought record lows in the 30s to the Southeast and the barrier islands. This morning, it was the same temperature here as in Chicago! Georgia marinas, unlike those in Florida, seem to have loaner cars, so we borrowed one to drive around the island. We stopped at Driftwood Beach on the north end, and despite the cold and bitter winds, set out for a walk along the water. We imagined how fun this would be on a warmer day.
