End of October and November

It seems like I’m always behind in posting to the blog, but I’m still here!

I went to the Smokies in Tennessee for a week in October.  I have camped a good bit in the Great Smokey Mountain National park over the last 15 years or so.  This time I stayed in Walland, TN.  I had hoped to see some fall color, but saw some color that I didn’t expect -


Yep, I went to see the colorful leaves and saw snow instead.  Actually the snow was only at the higher elevations.  I missed the peak season for leaves, but a few days later I went to Chattanooga, TN and drove to Cloudland Canyon for the day.

It was beautiful!!  While in Chattanooga, I also went to the Tennessee Aquarium.  I enjoy aquariums.  One of my favorites is the Leafy Sea Dragon.   I’m also a fan of the Jellyfish.

After this, I finally made my way back to Georgia.  My plan was to stay fairly close to Athens so I could visit some friends and go to a few appointments.  I stayed at Watson Mill Bridge State Park, but unfortunately the second day I was there I got the stomach virus that was going around and didn’t do much for a few days.  A great advantage of being sick in the RV is it is only a few steps from the sofa to the toilet!  Towards the end of the week, I did get out and do some hiking and saw a few friends.  The picture below is of the covered bridge in the park. 


After Watson Mill, I headed up to the mountains.  I stayed in Dillard, GA, which is about 15 minutes from where my mom lives.  I had planned on doing some of the RV maintenance that I had gotten to, but I didn’t do much.  I am going to have to figure out a plan to get everything done.  Maybe just plan on spending one day a month doing maintenance?? 

I am now on Sanibel Island in Florida.  I will post about this later.


  1. Great to hear an update Pam! So glad you're okay. It's so funny that your followers are keeping up with you :) Keep up the good work! We love the blog and especially the beautiful photos! It is like a virtual vacation for those of us who are not able to travel. I can almost breathe the fresh mountain air! Tell Aunt Mary Frances hello for me and ya'll have a Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi Pam,

    Cloudland Canyon was always one of our favorite parks. Never got to see it when the leaves were changing so really enjoyed your photos. Hope you have a great holiday season!
