Monique - My Transporter at Jekyll Island, Georgia
Photo Above: Monique stands beside the Rock Reef Pass sign in Florida.
Monique, the sister of a local friend, agreed before the
trip began to drive from her home in Savannah and pick me up
at my planned destination of Jekyll Island. She then took me
south toward the area of lodging and services near the Jacksonville Airport.
The peace of mind of knowing during the journey that I had someone ready to transport me at the end
was so valuable!
You may have noticed that I did not mention Monique on my
"Day 45" report at Jekyll Island.
I had already spoken with her about this ahead of time and I decided to
end the story right as my wheels enter the ocean. If my story turns into a book,
I might mention more of the details of what happened during those
next few hours with Monique.
By the way, the photo above was submitted by Monique for
my "Altitude Snob" web site. I have a simple web site with a list
of my friends and acquaintences based on the altitude of their home:
www.AltitudeSnob.com. Check it out! :)
Monique, thank you again for coming down to Jekyll Island and then
driving farther to Jacksonville for me. I was so tired, my allergies
were killing me and I was not much of a conversationalist, but
I can not tell you how appreciate I am.
