Tempus Fugit





In January we spent two weeks away from Louisville, Kentucky.  We rented a condo on Amelia Island, just north of Jacksonville, Florida on the Florida-Georgia border.

We drove the van, taking two days to cover the distance each way.  Going south we did an overnight in McDonough, Georgia and coming back we spent the night in Calhoun, Georgia.

The photo albums and daily blogs are below:
