The area was encased in a thick fog after that crazy rain. We went for a walk on the nature trail that surrounds the park. In actuality, it surrounds the dog park and the dump station, but for brief periods of time, you do feel like you’re deep in the woods!!

Nature’s stop sign.
I love mossy stuff! I’ve tried growing it with no luck πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Wow! It rained non-stop here for 36 hours and 38 minutes!

Still trying to snag a catfish!
Decided to do rainy day stuff like laundry and use the normal size showers.
There was certainly more room in the shower house, but the trade off is you have to be pressed up against to tile to get the water on you. πŸ™„

Part of the plan for this trip is to get healthy, lose weight, lower and raise the numbers as needed, etc., so we brought our bicycles to assist. After our bacon and pancake breakfast, we pulled those babies out, checked the campground map for a route, and we took off…..

I’m already walking the bike up the hill. I was impressed Steve was still riding.

Oh wait, he’s off.

I consider walking the bike up that hill a victory!! πŸ‘πŸ†
I thought a mile and three quarters was pretty good for the maiden voyage, until Steve brought to my attention it was kilometers. Buzz kill.
Change in strategy

Took the bike into town and it was a prefect day for a ride… cool enough for the leather but not so cold that it was unpleasant! I keep forgetting how close it is to Christmas until we stopped at Walmart! 😳

Landed safely in Eufaula AL at White Oak Creek – the BASS CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!!! 😁 Holy Cow what a beautiful spot! We look forward to checking out the area. We are here through Christmas….

Picked up a new sticker πŸ‘
Yes I ride with a 60 pound dog on my lap….. πŸ™„
Steve can always sniff out a Home Depot. Must be the magical combination of testosterone and Speedstick πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

No words 😢
Christmas lights are a MUST!

Good morning from chilly Sparks GA. I thought we accidentally wandered north of the Mason Dixon line!! πŸ₯Ά Spent the night at Horse Creek Winery and did a wine tasting with Chelsea, who was a great host. Bought a few bottles of wine and a small gift so our free Harvest Host night πŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ‘

This blueberry wine was delightful

Spent most of the day prepping to leave. A crazy storm came through in the afternoon and as of 7am, it’s still raining! We head up into GA a bit then we are staying in AL til after Christmas. Then MS, LA, and will hang out in TX for a while after that..
