Today we awoke to warmer temperatures, but it was cloudy.  We got an early start on our trip of nearly two hundred miles.  We got gas at the cheapest price since we entered Florida.  


The route, since we are going west and there are no Interstates was very circuitous.  We'd drive twenty miles west, go north and again join the same highway.  It happened over and over.  But, it was good.


We had rain for nearly the entire trip.  At times, the wipers couldn't even keep up with it, so I adjusted my pace and we just enjoyed the signs of spring along the roadside.  Lots of water here in Georgia, not even counting the fresh-fallen rain.  We noticed pecan orchards and even a spot that grows olives.  Do olives actually grow in Georgia.  A question that I cannot answer.


We stopped for lunch after pulling over in front of a church.  We were late in eating and the yawns had started to hit me.  A weird phenomenon for me of late is this yawning.  I still get up early and don't eat breakfast until nine or so unless we're leaving.  The sign for hunger appears and hopefully we can find a place to stop.  There are lots of closed businesses down here, but today I just couldn't seem to spot one soon enough.  We made it fine, though to today's destination.


We are south of Donalson, Georgia, at Seminole State Park.  I got my reservations online, so each time we register, they give me a twenty percent credit on our credit card.  Makes us feel very welcome!


Not all of the campground is open, but we in a site not far from the shores of Seminole Lake.  It's a rather small lake, but lots of folks are here to fish.  Boats abound.  They have several cottages here, in another section of the park.  As with most CGs in the southland, they have laundry facilities, which is a real convenience for us.  I noticed a sign for the trailhead for one of their trails, so if it ceases to precipitate, we'll check it out on the morrow.  (I do love the archaic English!)


Lynn is preparing our dinner, as I write.  No comments about what it is though, since I will not make anyone's "mouth water."  Seems like the right thing to do, or??
More tomorrow about the Endless Weekend...stay tuned.

Hi..... Yes they DO grow olives in Georgia ...go to georgiaolivefarms.com. To learn all about it.....they want us to be less dependent on foreign olive oil, I guess.
