Second day of travelling home

We opted to take the normal route back, going through Georgia. Once again, we had issues in the Ocala area, and once out of Florida, we pretty much had smooth going. We stopped at a Citrus and Gator stop, to pick up some more oranges and grapefruit, one of the benefits of driving.

We made very few stops, having left after having a salt water pool swim. One of our stops was at the Magnolia Plantation in Georgia, where we bought pecans and salted peanuts.

We rolled in to Macon Georgia around six and then went to dinner at a Mexican place. We had a great dinner, beginning with Margaritas for most of us. We then went back to the hotel and took the girls for a swim in the seemingly cold water of the indoor pool.

We had a great time and even I went swimming and didn’t complain.

We got up early the next morning, had breakfast, and headed toward Atlanta. Luckily it was Saturday and the traffic was not an issue. However, we had numerous times where Interstate 75 became a parking lot. Especially when we went into Tennessee. Near the northern border, we had well over an hour of sitting on the road. We were supposed to get into Lexington, Kentucky, by just after three. We got in after five.

We chose our last night, or should I say that our ‘daughter’ Laura, chose a place to stay that is a working farm.
