Vacation 2017


Joyce and I planned our summer vacation around the solar eclipse. We chose to go to Georgia and South Carolina based on expected weather conditions and other activites after the eclipse.

We spent a few days on the beach at Tybee Island, GA. We toured around Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA too.
