Heritage Farm At General Coffee State Park, Volume One
Since time worked out in our favor, Gary and I decided to spend three nights at General Coffee State Park in Nicholls, Georgia. It's our favorite Georgia park, and the only one to have farm animals. It was less than 150 miles from Magnolia Springs to General Coffee, so we arrived early and made the most of our time. The other times we've been to the park, we've camped in site #32. It was occupied this time, so we substituted with site #31, which is right across the street. As usual, there were very few campers there. It amazes us that most people don't seem to know about the park. It's quiet and peaceful and very pretty. Gary and I love the animals there. On the way to the park, we stopped at Wal-Mart. Gary bought 12 pounds of carrots to feed the donkeys with. Some of the other animals got a few bites of the carrots, but Poncho and Jenny (the donkeys) got most of them. They are unquestionably our favorites. They remind us of Jack and Diane, the donkeys at Gary's sister's farm. Poncho and Jenny got 4 pounds of carrots on each of our three days there. Like I did with my Letchworth post, I won't show you a bunch of pictures of me at our campsite. Been there, seen that. Instead, I will focus this round of pictures on the animals at Heritage Farm. They are too cool for school! Enjoy.
