They were going to stay at a friend's hotel for their honeymoon, and they decided to drive the whole way.
First of all, the bridge going through Savannah was covered in ice, and they were one of the last vehicles allowed through. The policeman directing traffic saw their Jersey plates and assumed they could handle it.
As it got darker, they entered the Okefenokee swamp. They told me they were surrounded by moss covered trees, swamp grass, and the roads were covered with over a foot of water in some places. By the time it was completely dark they were so into the swamp that there were no street lights.
They kept going anyway.
After driving for what seemed to be forever, and listening to unusual night noises including what sounded like a very large frog, they saw a light in the distance.
When they got close enough they could see it was one light bulb hanging from a wire, illuminating a toll booth.
They paid their dime, found out they were indeed going in the right direction, and found the next creepy little roadside inn. They spend the night, woke to see a giant swamp behind the motel, and continued on their journey.
Happily, when they finally got to their honeymoon destination the lodging was lovely and they had a wonderful time.
So in honor of their great adventure I decided this week to draw the Okefenokee frog.
Hope you have fun drawing him.
