Driving North - GA to TN

Good morning,

That's our car parked literally right outside our Hampton Inn room near Savannah, Georgia.  We just love this convenience of being so close to checking in and checking out the next morning.
We left the hotel very early to continue our trip from Florida to home in Ohio.  We woke up in Georgia and went to sleep in Tennessee. 
Here we are about the cross the border between Georgia and South Carolina.  The weather was a little overcast early in the morning, but not too bad.
We got a kick out of artwork on 18 wheelers.
 This one looked good enough to eat!
 Truckers truly do deliver just about everything we need.
 When the clouds cleared for awhile we saw some very pretty Fall colors.  We were definitely past prime time, but compared to just seeing palm trees for weeks, these trees looked magnificent to us.
 More pretty Fall colors.
 Now, there's a cool ride to take along behind your RV.
 As we rolled into the Smoky Mountains, the rain clouds rolled in over us.
 It was quite spectacular to see the rapid change in the weather.
 I was taking a series of images of the weather over the mountains and obviously put the camera down to look at the screen on the back before the last shot. 

Yes, those are my knees and the image brought me a smile when I downloaded the camera. 

I hope you're still enjoying the trip with us!

All the best,

Hi Lois...It's been a long time!!! I had a great holiday in your amazing country and am slowly returning to normal. I am so happy I came home just in time to share your road trip...you know how much I love your road trips!!!

Ga. n Tn...two very beautiful states...We go to Brunswick Ga. during the winter months...its just 80 miles south of Savannah..we love that area! Safe travels to you!

I can't get over the difference in how I travel and how you guys do it! I drive 1300 miles in two days from western NY to Alabama in the springtime each year. While I do enjoy the view and the changing scenery as I drive down, including watching Spring come alive the further south I go, I just don't stop to take all the pictures you do! Maybe I'll try your way this spring!

Hi Everyone,

We love road trips, too, as you can see!

Karen, it is so good to see you again! It is good to be home where we can check in on other blogs whenever we want to again, too.

Sherry, I think it makes a difference in our travel patterns because there are two of us to enjoy it together. I doubt I would stop so often if I were traveling alone. I have done the trip alone, too, and have only stopped two nights instead of three or more. We do always have an extra night right before boarding the ship as insurance in case we encounter a car or other problem on the way down and need more time to get there before the ship sails.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and for your kind comments.

All the best,

Love a roadtrip, and the best ones are the ones that take us home.

I like the autumn leaves on the trees. I really miss them.

Elaine said...

Lovely road images! I have taken similar shots to your last one many times. I also seem to manage to get little snippets of movies of my feet or other strange things. I guess it's all those little buttons so close together.....

Was not going to comment on this post till I saw the last two shots...I have did the last one a number of times. and I love that next to the last shot...beautiful!
