Lighthouse Restaurant

Great weather today.  We had sunny skies and 78 degrees.  Yeah!!!!  I am loving this weather. 

John and I went sightseeing today.  Our first stop was Dauset Trails located just outside Jackson, Georgia.  They have nature trails, picnic areas and animals.  The parking and admission is free.  Donations are appreciated.  This is a really neat place to visit.  While we were there some of the animals would not come out of their hiding places.  Even though some of the animals chose not to come out we were able to see lots of other ones.  Unfortunately, my camera battery needed charging and I did not get pictures. 

Our next stop of the day was Noah’s Ark located in Locust Grove, Georgia.  This is a cool place to visit also.  It is quite a bit larger than Dauset Trails and is nicer than some zoos  we have visited.  Parking and admission is free.  They take donations to help feed the animals.  We were in time to see the tigers being fed.  Noah’s Ark has been featured on National Geographic Channel.  A must see if you are ever in the area. 

Tonight John and I went with fellow work campers, Dick, Audrey and Pete to Milner, Georgia to have dinner at the Lighthouse Restaurant.  This is one of Dick’s favorite places.  We all had the seafood buffet and the food was delicious.  This was the best seafood I have had in a while.  I think we all had a little too much to eat. LOL    Since my camera was still on the charger John took a few pictures with his phone.


Dick, Audrey and me.

After dinner we walked around outside the restaurant before our 35 minute drive back to the campground.  We were watching a group of cats that were hanging out in the parking lot.  John counted eight of them.  It looks like this is a regular spot for them to wait for snacks.  I am sure someone feeds them as they look very healthy.

Here are a few of the cats.  They were patiently waiting.

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
