After getting the motorhome serviced in Gaffney, SC we headed south on I-85 to Atlanta for a visit with son, Kevin. Kevin is a pilot for a Delta regional airline so we had to fit our visit in between his trips. Kevin works diligently to keep his lawn neatly trimmed so we dug in to help him do some end-of-season tasks.
Since we will soon be headed further south, we decided to celebrate an early Thanksgiving with Kevin. Pam worked her little apron off to create a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Everything was delicious!
After a great visit with Kevin we continued our journey south. We are now in Ashburn, GA, about 175 miles south of Atlanta where we are staying at Wanee Lake RV and Golf Resort. While the term “resort” is definitely a stretch for this park, it does have a decent nine hole golf course (the reason for our visit).
This part of southern Georgia is known for two things: peanuts and cotton. A cotton field near the park was a sea of white when we arrived.
A week later a photo from the same location shows the field after the cotton had been harvested into huge rolls ready for transport.
There is very little to do or see around the town of Ashburn, but we did enjoy many days of golf and the occasional trip south to the town of Tifton for some liquid refreshment at one of those chain coffee shops.
Tomorrow we move into Florida and will stay there until January 1st. We’ll stay a couple of nights in Bushnell, a small town along I-75 north of Tampa before moving over to Hudson for a week to have the windows in the coach repaired (they all have fogged up). More on that process in our next post . . .
