This hotel was alright, and was located near Jimmy Carter's house, which is a major tourist attraction in the city of Plains. The food was alright and I enjoyed the view of the city outside the window. I didn't stay in the hotel for too long, as I was with my family most of the time.

We get up to a gray and cloudy day. Rain is forecast for South Georgia—that's us! Well we go anyway. Hopefully the things we want to do in Plains will be mostly inside.
We’re having a terrible time with internet connections. Even going up to the office did not helped. We’ll just have to make do with phones for emergencies.
Plains is a very small southern town with ...
... of pine needles below them all along the highway. The grass is a little greener.
We cross into Georgia and almost immediately there is a change. Some farm fields are a carpet of bright green (alfalfa or wheat???) Some fields have cattle and horses. One even had some donkeys. We got a good laugh when I call a miniature horse a "toy horse". Oh, well—whatever word works!
Trees are beginning to flower. Bright redbuds light ...
