Suwanee River Music Park, Live Oak, FL - May 10, 2008

HI EVERYONE,

BOBBIE AND I HAVE STARTED A NEW ADVENTURE. WE ARE TRAVELING WITH OUR HORSES AND GOING TO SEE THE BEST OF AMERICA BY HORSEBACK. WE HAVE COMPILED AN E-MAIL LIST OF FRIENDS WE THOUGHT WOULD BE INTERESTED IN OUR TRAVELS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE REMOVED FROM THIS LIST, JUST LET US KNOW, OR IF YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO BE ON THIS LIST LET US KNOW.

WE HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM OUR FIRST TRIP OUT. IT WAS A 9 HOUR TRIP TO THE SPIRIT OF THE SUWANEE RIVER MUSIC PARK IN LIVE OAK, FL. THIS PARK IS LOCATED ON THE BANKS OF THE SUWANEE RIVER ABOUT AN HOUR WEST OF JACKSONVILLE, FL., 5 MILES OFF OF I-10. THE PARK IS FOR CAMPERS WITHOUT HORSES AND HAS A SECTION FOR CAMPING WITH HORSES. OF COURSE WE STAYED IN THIS SECTION.

A STABLE MANAGER AND A CAMPING HOST HELP YOU GET SETUP AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. A 50 STALL BARN IS AVAILABLE, OR IF YOU PREFER YOU MAY RENT PORTABLE STALLS NEXT TO YOUR CAMPSITE. EACH CAMPSITE HAS WATER AND ELECTRIC HOOKUP. THE NEW BATH HOUSE IS VERY NICE AND CLEAN. THERE IS A 700 SEAT MUSIC HALL WITH ENTERTAINMENT SEVERAL NIGHTS A WEEK; ALSO A RESTAURANT WITH 3 MEALS A DAY AVAILABLE.

NOW TO THE IMPORTANT PART, THE TRAILS. 80 MILES OF WELL- MARKED TRAILS AWAIT THE RIDERS. PART OF THESE TRAILS ARE ALONG THE RIVER WITH SPANISH MOSS HANGING FROM THE TREES. AS YOU RIDE THE TRAILS BY THE RIVER ,YOU WILL FIND SANDY BEACHES WITH SAND AS WHITE AS BLEACHED SHEET FLAPING IN THE WIND. WE CAMPED HERE FOR 4 DAYS.

ON THE 5TH DAY WE PACKED UP AND HEADED FOR BEAUFORT, S.C. TO SPEND A FEW DAYS WITH SOME FRIENDS WHO OWN CAMELOT FARMS, A BOARDING AND LESSON BARN ON ST. HELENA ISLAND. THEY OFFER TRAIL RIDES ON THEIR 60 ACRE FARM YEAR ROUND. DURING THE WINTER MONTHS THEY OFFER RIDES ALONG THE BEACH. WE RODE ON THE BEACH FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH OUR HORSES. IT TOOK A FEW MINUTES FOR OUR HORSES TO TAKE TO THE WATER. THEY PUT THEIR NOSES IN THE WATER BUT SOON FOUND OUT THAT THIS WATER WAS NOT DRINKABLE. THE WIDE SANDY TRAILS WERE LINED WITH MOSS DRAPED LIVE OAK TREES.

WE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED OUR FIRST TRIP OUT WITH OUR HORSES. I THINK THE HORSES ENJOYED IT ALSO. EACH DAY WE WOULD GET THEM OUT TO SADDLE UP AND RIDE. THEIR EARS WOULD PERK UP AND THEY HAD A SPRING IN THEIR GAIT.

WELL, SO LONG UNTIL OUR NEXT TRIP

LARRY AND BOBBIE GREENE
