Yesterday we left Disney World around 11am and headed north. Randy & I looked at each other and asked “WHY are we headed NORTH”????? For family, of course! That's the only reason we'd head north when cold weather is setting in. :)
Gratefully, we aren't headed too far north. Just to the Atlanta area.
We traveled about 350 miles and landed in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel near Macon, GA for the night. We treated ourselves to coffee and dessert at the restaurant, then came back to the rig to settle down for the night. It didn't take long for Randy to fall asleep – he was out before 8:30. About an hour later, I went out, too.
Randy was up bright and early this morning, about 6am. I didn't sleep well at all due to my cold and I stayed in bed until 7. We always get an early start when we overnight in a parking lot. So, by 7:30 we were on our way.
Since we'd driven so far yesterday, we had under 120 miles left on our trip. An easy drive! We stopped for a quick breakfast at McDonald's and continued on our way.
We pulled into Twin Lakes RV in Cumming, GA about 10am. I don't think we've ever gotten to a campground that early. There was no problem with our checking in that early and by 11:30 we were set up and sitting in our recliners. Not bad.
Our niece, Tara, and her boyfriend, Aaron, invited us to their house for dinner tonight. We have not had much chance to get to know Aaron one-on-one, so we were delighted with the invitation. The four of us had a great time and Aaron is a very nice young man. Tara seems very happy and that's all that matters to us.
Tomorrow is my very favorite holiday – you can have Christmas, New Year's, and the others. I'll take Thanksgiving every time. There isn't the pressure of buying the “right” present or attending a party or anything else. It's just a day to reflect on the blessings one has and to be grateful for them. I like that.
Until the next time . . .
