Feel so good to be on the road again! There is nothing like hearing the beautiful diesel start up. 4 years later, it STILL makes my heart go a flutter.
We eased back into the swing of things and kept our first day shorter than some, with 8 hours of travel. Kids did a great job working on school and it was almost as if we hadn't stopped traveling for 3 whole months.
Dale found us a beautiful place for the night called Fair Harbor in Perry, Georgia.
Once we get our home on wheels set up, we like to get out, stretch our legs and explore the RV park a bit. This one had horses, a play area, and a big pond for fishing.
We took a nice long family walk before dinner and bedtime. We were going to hit the road at a good time the next day. Travel days go easier when they start early, don't you agree?
Buford, GA, here we come!
We had never been in Buford before, and there wasn't many options in the way of RV parks we could fit at. The Shoal Creek Campground on Lake Lanier looked promising.
We usually don't fit at state parks, but they thought we could swing it......
It didn't take Dale long to realize with the map of S curves handed to us, the route leading to our site, was NOT going to be an option.
So, he backs us back down the hill, around the corner and then proceeds to back back up, into our spot with the trailer, despite their advice to drop it.
Guess they don't know Dale has got some backing up skillsssss....
Thanks to Paxton for recording this video!
IMPRESSIVE. I would NEVERRRRRRRRRR. Thank goodness I married someone who can back like a champ!
We get to call this stunning forest home for the next few days, and I am ECSTATIC! Forest is my FAVORITE....
Once we set up, the kids were begging to go explore!
It was fun to see the kids use their imaginations and hang out together and just chillax outside in the cooler weather.
Hammock shenanigans and a picnic dinner: Chicken Tetrazinni, mmm!
We enjoyed a cozy fire before bed.....
Kids couldn't get out to the fire circle fast enough the next morning, but BRRR was it COLD! We got wimpy over the winter in Florida, I think. ;)
We did school out there, then off they went to play the day away!
I sat out for a long time after everyone else found something to do. It was just so peaceful.
Reminded me of a verse, hearing the trees clap and praise in the breeze.
I Chronicles 16:33a
"Let the trees of the forest sing for joy before the LORD...."
Check out these sweet buddies, playing orphans and cooking over an "open fire"......
At this point, I headed into town for class at a darling local coffee shop. NO photos, of course! I always get so distracted. Guess that's good, since I am there to share my oils and do my job to empower people to use them! LOL :) We had a lovely time.
Back home for dinner and one more family walk through the park and fire with the kiddos.
We had to head out early the next day for our next location.....
Alabama, here we come!
