Marry Christmass and happy new year!
Just as Dallas said, we are still alive. I can confirm that for you. Relaxing on a quaint little island by both the warm ocean and Savannah, GA, made us totally forget about updating you guys on our trip, so we’ll try to get back on that.
After leaving the Munger’s in North Carolina, we drove down to the beautiful city of Savannah, located on the coast and full of as many trees as one could wish for. Right next to Savannah, however, is a little island named Tybee Island, and that is where we stayed. We had to drive over a several mile salt marsh to get there, and seeing it at both high and low tides was quite the sight. After pulling into the campground, which was quite nice but had the loudest cicadas ever, we set up and headed to the beach.
From what I could tell, Tybee Island was an old fort of some sort, with old bunkers and batteries used as sever-weather shelters, and several canons located around as decoration. However, this is where I shall end, and so I hope you check back soon for some more stories about Savannah, Okefenokee Swamp, and the Clemons!!
We set up our tent trailer in the Munger’s driveway and were able to spill out in their large car port which was nice as it rained the hole time we were there. The Mungers were also hosting another family who was part of the crew (Teacher, craft services and extras) on Advent Film Group’s film One Good Man.
After we had set up we talked with the Mungers in their living room about the next day. The conversation turned to the Munger’s most recently finished film A Blueprint for Language Arts Success Greg was showing us the DVD, how they made their DVDs in house now, how they did this and that… then you can imagine all of our surprise when my name appeared the credits! I had forgotten, and Greg didn’t know, that Paul (Greg’s oldest son) had given me a “special thanks” credit at the end of the film. We all had a good laugh about that.
Greg Munger owns Piedmont Educational Services a and has had several films created including the multi award winning Animals of the Bible, which he made with his son Paul.
Along with us filming our documentary, I felt like I was in the middle of christian film making central. It seemed that everyone was somehow involved in a production of some sort on some level. It was a very busy and very fun place to be.
