On the road to our new life!
We’ve finally made it to Georgia by way of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ireland, and Indiana! We went through Kentucky and Tennessee (Hello, Nashville!) to the Georgia state line… but we’d have several hours’ more driving left… including driving through Atlanta just after rush hour.
Signs I thought were worthy of a blog mention:
I don’t think they meant for those two signs to go together, but… interesting, huh? Trust Him from the mountaintop?
As you see, we’re coming into Atlanta now… I hope it’s not too crazy. Last time we were here it was a hideous din, like a million bees buzzing. The cars were swinging across several lanes of traffic from both sides, all at the same time… reminded me of motorcycles in a cage at a circus. This time, it was nothing like that. It was fairly easy. We stayed in the fabulous carpool “diamond” lane and sailed through!
Here’s another billboard for you…
I thought that was a cool vintage looking sign
This amused me to see Trump on a tower
Ah, we’re almost in Macon, whew! We have hotel reservations there. We’re sick of being on the road. Everyone’s ready to get out of the van.
Our hotel is behind the Outback Steakhouse. Glad to be calling it a night.
LOL, figured you’d get a kick out of seeing this. Well, no, I’m not back in Ireland, but I’m back at the coast, near an island and dolphins! Oh, and one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the world, huge love for the Irish in Savannah.
What would Georgia be without peaches?
Ooh, look, we’re getting close!
Not long now!
I’m getting nervous butterflies!
Here’s our exit!
Entering our neighborhood (hey, I know I’m telling everyone where I live, but Google shares everything anyway, might as well do it myself in style!)
Beautiful flowers by driveway, walkway
Gazebo in back
Look, sand! Sand in the backyard! (Hey do you like my cute sandals? Seriously cheap from Kmart!)
AND… wow, totally didn’t know about this! There’s a lagoon at the end of the property, just yards from our patio door! That’s a crane. I took many pictures of it. Figured you only needed to see one, LOL. There’s fish in the lagoon and we’re allowed to fish! There are turtles too. Savannah is on cloud 9. She spent hours out there… did not have sunscreen on. Yep. (Oh, if you are new to my blog, my youngest daughter is named Savannah… coincidence, nothing to do with GA. She was named after the adorable child character in Savannah Smiles, a movie. But… my Savannah LOVES that people don’t get her name wrong anymore, and she’s loving seeing her name on everything. Already bought a hat with Savannah on it.)
I’ll end our moving day with this closeup of the gorgeous flowers I showed you earlier. Welcome to the South. I hope you enjoy the journey with me.
