Rainy days and Tuesday’s…nope, wrong words to the song. In any case, it was a rainy day here, and the sound of the rain on the Coach in the morning was awesome, and kept us inside for a good part of the morning.
Once we got our legs under us, we decided to take a recon trip for the best route to get to I-10 West from here to head to Pensacola tomorrow. After we figured that out, we decided to head for Thomasville, GA. We went there a few years ago, but it was on a Sunday and everything was closed, so we vowed we would return someday…and today was the day. Here are a few pictures of the day:
Our next stop was the museum in town, and what a treat that was. It was only $5 per person, and a twenty-minute video, followed by a guided tour of the several homes they have on the property from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s:
Thomasville became a very popular place for the Northern folks with wealth to build “cottages” to winter in. This is funny, as most of the “cottages” are larger than any house we have ever lived in.
We spent a couple of hours at the museum. Check it out if you are ever in the area! After that, we headed to quaint Broad street…brick road with many shops and eateries. We landed at the Sweet Grass Cheese Shop. How could a Wisconsonite pass that up! Was an awesome place with great food and cheese. All organic, non-GMO, and locally produced. They have a herd of Jersey’s that are grass-fed and pastured New Zeeland style…look it up. We ate well, and left with some of their awesome cheese.
After we ate, we headed back to Grassy Pond to get the rig ready for the move tomorrow. After securing a few things, we headed to the little community center if you will, did a puzzle, played some cards, and chatted with another Air Force Vet for an hour or two.
Below are some recent pics of my mom and dad and my Aunt that we visited with last week. Dumb Ron has to snag other people’s pics, as he forgets to take them sometimes:
Well, that is it for tonight. We hope to be up early, dried out, and ready to roll by 0900. The drive to Pensacola is about five hours, as we are taking some side roads rather than going all the way on the interstate.
As always, we hope this finds you happy, healthy and living your dreams!!
