    Allatoona Landing - GA

    November 19, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Last stop before the motorhome goes into storage. Cleaning & packing on the agenda. Campground is on the edge of Allatoona Lake & pretty quiet as the temp has dropped, it's been mid 50f the last few days & near freezing overnight. Good test for our heating & acclimatising us for back in Brechin.
    Walked our round the lakeshore as the water is very low & saw some of the many boats berthed in docks here & more on the other side of the lake. This place must be full of boats in the summer !!

    High Falls State Park - GA

    November 16, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Georgia had a dry summer, so not a lot of water flowing over the falls, which are below a damned lake, so got up close by climbing down to the rocks. Staying in the campground for a few days & it gets chilly overnight, mid 40f. Leaves on the oaks are huge & falling, hike through the forest back to the falls was great. We are enjoying our last few days here. Special wildlife sitings are the armadillos nosing their way through the leaves looking for food !!Read more

    Loving the armadillo!

    Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort - Citra FL

    November 10, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Big resort with lots of snowbirds from up north spending the winter in sunny Florida, where temp is still in the low 80f. Golf carts everywhere, they had a couple of competitions, on 11th was a Veterans scramble. So we hit the driving range, borrowed the golf pro's left handed clubs for Stew & hired a set for me then hit a few balls, badly. Not played for years & it showed. Googled how to hold the club then hit some more balls, much better !!
    Will be heading north to Atlanta over the next few days. Fly back to Scotland Nov 23rd !!

    Van Fleet Trail - Polk City FL

    November 6, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    On our bikes for 25 miles along the Van Fleet Trail swampy woodlands & farms on either side. Wildlife sightings - herons, egrets, wood storks, hawks, turtles, snakes & lots of small birds. Should be renamed the Tortoise Trail as highlight were the many tortoises along the way, 1 bigger than Stew's bike helmet was scared of nothing !!Read more

    St Petersburg FL

    November 5, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Forgot to mention I'm liking Stew's new beardy look !!

    Dinner with friends at Peebles, it's been in business since 1947 & still family owned. Looked like a shack, but had to queue for a table. Ribs cooked in the back. Great atmosphere & food!!
