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.
