It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

This Place is for the Birds.

Our Location today is Savannah, Georgia.

Even though we intended a later departure I slept so well that I was wide awake by 7:00 this morning. Kathy slept until nearly 8:00 because she was the one with the pre-trip sleeplessness. So I had a chance to read the morning blogs and pack up our office before she appeared for breakfast. We kept it simple cereal and coffee before we started prepping in earnest to hit the road.
Goodbye until next time Flamingo Lake RV Resort.
The only thing we had packed yesterday was the basement as we were going to have a leisurely 117 mile drive and check in was not until 1:00 in the afternoon. Even after a slow start to our day we were saying goodbye to Flamingo Lake RV Resort by 10:00 and making our way north on I-95 heading for Savannah, Georgia.
The traffic was heavy for a Monday morning but I can’t recall once where there were any slowdowns. Time and miles just slowly slipped by us and before long we were being welcomed to the State of Georgia.
It's not often we see our rig from our dining table.
Little did I know I was being watched.
Shortly after 11:00 we decided to stop for an early lunch as it seemed breakfast was now a distant memory. The next exit that showed it had a Cracker Barrel we pulled off for some extra energy. No sooner had we were seated we watched two tour buses full pull in for their early lunch as well.
Kathy's Chicken Salad
My Meatloaf Dinner.
Our meals were of the top quality we have come to expect from the Cracker Barrel restaurants but when we saw they had Blackberry Cobbler we couldn’t resist. Unfortunately we had one more problem because when they served it to us it looked so good we forgot to take any pictures to show you.
Having used up more than an hour of time we got back on the road noting the many different colors of green that would be associated with spring. It seemed like only minutes after getting back on the highway we had arrived at our exit. Our GPS performed flawlessly the whole trip until it had us drive a mile and a half past the park and then make a U-turn to go back.
There I am setting up our utilities.
By 4:00 the park was full and they had people dry camping in the front driveway for the night.
Someone else keeping an eye on me.
We arrived at 1:05 and there were three rigs ahead of us waiting to be parked. We were guided out to site 64 and were happy with the size of it. This is one of those sites that makes you proud to be an RVer.
 The only problem we are having is with our neighbors. The back of the trailer faces a small lake and our neighbors are birds. There are Swans, Canadian Geese, and Mallard Ducks only to name the few species that I know but there are at least 6 species of different ducks that I don’t know here.
These last three were shot from inside our trailer.
The problem I mentioned is we are so mesmerized by all these birds it is hard to concentrate on anything else including writing this blog listening to their calls but we just love it here. That is why the title of this post said This Place is for the Birds. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

The liquor store knows you by your first name.


  1. We've all learned that our GPS's are not infallible. Looks like a lovely place.

  2. Well your tan/brown goose is a Toulouse, and the white one is an Emden. We raised geese for many many years. Our daughter still has 6 of them. We love them but they are messy little things.
    Looks like you had a relaxing day.

  3. Savannah is so much fun.....enjoy!

    Nice park and neighbors!

  4. Is that the KOA in Richmond Hill you are staying at?

  5. Love the looks of that campground.
