Awake: 5:58am Temp 57 sleep 5+20 sunny overnight @ Savannah, GA

Mid morning, I make a few calls to secure a campground in Perry, GA for Fri & Sat.

Then K & I drive (4.5) miles to the Bamboo Farm & Coastal Gardens. After talking with Jeff, the manager, we do a self-guided walking tour of nearly all (28) small gardens and/or test sites. We've learned more about bamboo than we expected too, ie a bamboo plant grows to its full height in (1) year & grows no more except to put out smaller shoots which follow the same growth pattern. These (46) areas have been used for research & education for over (100) yrs; there is much to see & learn regarding plants & trees.

Now the University of Georgia College of Agriculture & Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension is heavily involved with the planting & testing. Savannah is apparently an ideal spot for plant exploration & a bamboo grove.

Dinner: Bass fish, asparagus, brown rice & spinach salad.

Finish the movie: "Picnic" with William Holden, Rosalind Russell, Kim Novak, Betty Field, Cliff Robertson, etc. Excellent film of William Inge's Pulitzer Prize-winning play about drifter (Holden) who stops over in Kansas, stealing alluring Novak from his old buddy Robertson (making his film debut). 1955. Good show; Kathy was wide awake.

Lights out: 11:56pm
