On the Road Again - April, 2012

Good morning,

It feels so good to be traveling home again after ten weeks at sea.  We certainly enjoy our time at sea, but it is wonderful to get home to family again, too.  The first day we traveled from Port Canaveral to a Hampton Inn near Savannah, Georgia, then on to a Hampton Inn in Dandridge, Tennessee.
This is a new exit on I-95.  I love the creative names of roads.  ;)
Near Savannah there is a great deal of Spanish Moss on trees.  This dead tree covered with moss made quite a pretty design.
 We passed this military museum...
 ...and this construction equipment manufacturer.  We always think of children's Tonka toys spread out around the lawn when we pass here.
 I have enough pictures of bikes tied onto cars, trucks, and RVs to make a post of their own.  ;)
 It's that time again!  If we are not home, we always get absentee ballots and vote wherever we are. 
 See?  More bikes.   :)
 And, here is what we have been waiting for:  going into the mountains.  These foothills are a welcome sight.
 Soon those mountains were higher and higher.  The images are taken through the windshield so aren't the best, but I am glad we have them.  This is the way we saw it, reflections and all. 
 For the tail end of this post here's a tail of a tiger that is surely inside this car.  ;)

It feels good to be on the road again!  Our planned itinerary has changed a little, but we are having a great trip home.

All the best,
Lois

My brother used to have the nickname of Tiger as he was growing up. Lots of tiger stuffed animals, etc. So the tail on the car was a good one to see. I'll have to share that with him.

Hope your Thursday has treated you well.

Ten weeks away is a long, long time. I bet you're anxious to be at home for a while.
