Georgia was again a wonderful trip. We spent time with our oldest daughter and her family. Ray, my father-in-law and I hunted. I trained on my mountain bike and ran on trails in the woods. I got to shoot everyday, either on the upper deck when it was raining or outside when the rain stopped. And we got in some nice fishing. Still, we needed to get back to our home in North Carolina and the day of our departure arrived.
The drive from Tignall, GA to Hertford, NC takes about eight hours. Much of drive is interstate; too much of it is boring. Brenda and I like to listen to audiobooks while driving and on this trip we enjoyed “Odd Thomas” by Dean Koontz.
Another thing we do is look for good barbecue or Indian food along the way. Often we stop in Florence, SC at the Thunderbird Inn for their buffet – a tradition. The barbecue along the route has been sub-par. We did, however, find a good Indian restaurant in Columbia, SC.
We were surprised at how spicy they’d made their food. Most of the time we need to request additional spice to kick it up. The food at Delhi Palace was just about right for our palates.
The trip finally ended to the delectation of two truck-tired dogs and two driven down humans. More renovations, an eternal project, are proceeding at our house here. Despite the disarray and chaos, it is nice to be back.
