Oh, and my favorite eating place of all time is there, too.
Within walking distance to the marina is Wormsloe, a state park and historic home site. The man who built it, Noble Jones, came from England in 1733. He was one of the first settlers in Georgia.
|The tree-lined entry to Wormsloe|
Wormsloe is known for its beautiful live oak trees, which line the mile and a half long lane to the home.
|What the rangers use.|
They could have been funnin' me.
While at Wormsloe I approached the rangers there, figuring they were, after all, professionals. I asked, "What do y'all do to keep from getting bit around here?" The ranger reached behind the desk and presented me with... wait for it... hairspray. Yep, that's what they used. Some olive oil with coconut oil hair spray.
I even asked the dock workers here, who spend all day outside. They said nothing works, really. Except long sleeves and pants. Which they, indeed, wore.
