Heading Home - Part 2

Good morning,

We awoke in Tifton, Georgia, and continued our trip North.  Yep, that's rain, not my camera out of focus.
As it got lighter it was easier to see through the rain that was with us all day.
We know we're in Georgia.  That's one huge Georgia peach.
The rain just wouldn't quit.
We took another bypass, this time around Atlanta.  Yeah! 
We have a little Gateway baby computer just for the car.  It's pretty cool to be able to plug it in to check the weather or surf the Net while My Honey is at the wheel.  ;)
While driving past Atlanta's airport it feels as if we are on one of the runways.  I'm delighted to be in the car driving home, not trying to change planes in Atlanta!
We saw plenty of houses going down the road.  This one just needs a hammer and a whole bunch of nails.
We were on the right side of Atlanta traffic this time.
We're North of Atlanta now and there is a little blue over there in the sky, but it didn't last long.
Oh, look!  There's another house going down the road.  This one didn't need all the nails.  There seemed to be a tremendous number of houses on the road this trip.
Now we're getting into more rolling hills nearing mountains.
There's a Viking up here in the mountains in addition to the one who is sitting next to me driving the car. ;)

Aside:  Did you know Vikings really didn't have horns? The real story is here.
These trucks all obviously had heavy loads going up the mountain.  For awhile we thought they would keep the entire highway blocked, but this arrangement didn't last long.
Another flag!  Those are my wrists holding the camera in the rear view mirror.
Although overcast, the rain wasn't heavy at all as we headed deeper into the Southern Appalachian Mountains.  It was smooth sailing now to Tennessee where I hope you'll join us tomorrow.

Very best,
Lois

I loved the Georgia peach! How fortunate that you have the little computer to take along on the road. You must be anxious to be home!

When the rain is not too heavy it makes for a fairly good travel day--as long as you didn't have plans to make any stops along the way. Maybe Tennessee will be a little sunnier.

Isn't technology great Lois? We also each have a baby computer - netbooks and are using them to post about our trip. Did you also use yours on the cruise? Too bad about having to drive home in nasty weather but then you have those great memories of that long cruise to keep you and your honey amiling!

Really brought back memories of my last time down the Georgian highways! It was raining then too!But...that's what makes the state so green and pleasant!
So lovely to have found you and I am following along!

Good morning,

Yes, the baby Gateway computer is very nice. I use a larger capacity Toshiba laptop while on the ship and other times traveling, though, and an HP desktop while at home. The baby computer is just for the car. I guess there is a computer for every purpose. ;) Yes, My Honey and I both love all of this technology. At home and on board we each have our computers sitting side by side. The family that computes together....

Welcome, Ann. I've visited your blog and it is so very interesting.

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
Lois
