Well, you’d think now that we are in a state of lockdown, I’d have lots of time on my hands to do a catch up on my photo sharing. Wrong! Cos now I’m a mother, a teacher, a cook (cooking 3 meals a day, EVERY damn day. I’m starting to resent my quarantine mates for their constant need for sustenance), a cleaner, a referee for all of the sibling fights, a peace keeper for all of the sibling arguments, the director of entertainment, the boredom buster, an uber driver (always), a coach for any and every sport they want to practice in the garden, a medical professional cos I answer as best I can all of the corona virus questions as well as the standard day to day maintenance of bug bites, scratches and cuts. And I’m pretty sure I’ve left out a bunch of other roles I now play in our new lockdown lives. It can get pretty exhausting. So you can understand that once the kids are in bed for the evening, bed is the only place I want to be too. To try and recharge and stay positive for another day in the trenches of corona virus lockdown. But I’ve rallied this evening. I did finally get around to popping up the last of the pics from our pre-lockdown Winter break trip to Tybee Island.

Visit to Fort Pulaski, a military base used by the Union army during the civil war.

Lots of tunnels to help the soldier moved through the base undetected.

The boys were so excited, but a little nervous about going into the tunnels. They kept checking to make sure Daddy and I were right behind them.

“We’re still here Keane”.

Another bridge into the main part of the base.

Roof top cannons.

Looking down at one of the tunnels.

This wall was used to protect the soldiers from gun fire. Keane thought it was a ninja wall for the soldiers to train on.

Exiting through more tunnels.

The next day we took the boys to Oakland Wildlife Centre.

Follow the footprints to find the animals.

Big rush to see the animals.

Looking for the alligators. Didn’t see them.

Not sure what we were suppose to see here, but you can tell by Cullen’s disappointed face, that we didn’t see it.

Cougars were a no-show too. Not sure what was going on. Weather too cold perhaps?

A nice boardwalk through the water.

Finally we saw something.

The bald eagle.

Fun in the giant nest.

Hard to see cos he’s camouflaged, but there is a wolf resting on the tree stump.

Not one to follow rules is our Cullen.

The morning of our departure and Keane is helping pack up the camper.
