Where I stayed
Site Number 31
We re-hooked and then headed for the campground. Fortunately we didn't have far to go, since the battery in the phone gave warning that it was low and shutting down
The campground roads are VERY narrow and curvy. It demands good driving skills and slow speed to negotiate one's way. We mad two passes and found only two sites open that we could take. We picked the more level of the two and got parked. By then it was two in the afternoon. We had some lunch and sat a bit. Lynnie's planning dinner, which necessitates a trip into Cartersville, to the Sav-A-Lot store. In the meantime, I put down the blocks and Lynnie guided me so now the coach is near perfect in the level department.
The campground is very pretty. Leaves are everywhere and the dogwoods are in bloom. They are the trees of which I've already posted a couple of pictures. The forest floor is covered with rust-colored leaves and with the rain, all is very silent. We're right next to Lake Altoona on a slope overlooking the water
We're off now to the big city. More later...
Just got finished cuttin' up, vegetables, that is, for a spicy sausage soup for dinner. We're expecting Lynnie's brother Tim, his daughter Lora and the baby for dinner soon. They live near here in Canton.
Dinner was a spicy, as in hot, success. The soup, as always, was delicious and, there wasn't a clogged sinus in the place. Just the way I like it... We had a grand visit and met the handsome Joshua. He was a bit shy at first, but warmed quickly to our friendliness. As you all must know, it takes only a child to fill a room with warmth, joy and excitement. The only sour note, and it was a minor one, was when I assumed Joshua could stand by himself and he took a nosedive into the rug. No harm done though. He had a chance to show his prowess at verbal expression and I got to feel bad for a few minutes. Soon after he was his smiling self and nearly made eye-contact with me. We'll see him again tomorrow afternoon when we visit in Canton for dinner.
The rain has ceased and it's darker here than "the inside of a cow". I hope that it will be a bit sunny tomorrow so I can show you what a beautiful homesite we now have. Thanks for dropping by...
