We arrived here at Yonah Mountain on Sunday 9/22 The trip up was nice and the roads werent bad. When we arrived the campground Hosts (Bill and Norma) met us at the front and took us in a golf cart to pick out a site. This is another awesome campground. Well maintained and very nicely laid out. We learned a new game from Bob, Norma and ed and Diane called marbles. Uses cards ...
Got up at 7am, and on the road at 830am for Helen, Georgia. A little overcast this morning, but it cleared up nicely!
Gorgeous on Rt 19 in the Nantahala Forest Region; riding by the river and watching folks floating down on tubes.
136 miles down, and my shoulders were killing me from all the fun curves. I need a lighter bike....oh wait! I HAVE a lighter bike! I would love to ride the Ducati around down here.
Had a nice ...
... my usual fashion.
Hitting the 400 toll booth without dropping the quarters was the final touch to a wonderful trip.
And now, at 2:12 in the morning of 3 August, I'm tired and have remembered all I can.
Good night... but it won't be as sound as at Cedar House.
It just hit me. They have Cedar House Rules there. ...
... had some passable New Orleans cuisine. (They didn't have the redfish which Roy and I had really wanted).
We got back to CH about 9, so we sat out on the patio and talked, not having the energy or appetite to get that bottle of wine and the chocolates. (So Roy has the chocolates in his fridge, and I have the wine on our rack, awaiting some night soon when we can have them out on our deck.)
Another really great night's sleep for all of us.
... all the way to Dahlonega. Our second good omen for the trip was the fact that I hit the toll change basket without dropping either quarter. We were on our way.
We got to D just before noon and drove on out of town to locate the Cedar House Inn, a B&B. We had no difficulty finding it, but it was quite clear that the driveway would lead us off the beaten path. The gate was locked until 4, as we had been informed, so we made for our first winery and lunch.
