Stone Mountain, GA

Hello Georgia: Land of pecans, peaches and RAIN! I think we just picked an unfortunate spring week to visit the Atlanta area because there were very few breaks in the storms for the entire week. I think we may have only seen the sun for a fleeting moment. That altered our plans slightly since no one was very keen on sightseeing in the rain.

We were able to catch up with some college friends that we haven’t seen in way too many years. We enjoyed a  wonderful evening spent getting reacquainted and letting our kids play together; we also may have enjoyed a bit too much wine ;)

Stone Mountain was gorgeous!

Gulf Shores, AL

We love it when our friends stalk us because they hook us up with places to stay along the way. Two families we met at the rally, the Travaglino’s and the Burrell’s, were already in Alabama when they found out we were headed their way, so we changed course from Mobile to Gulf Shores. The park is called Luxury RV Resort, which is a pretty misleading name for essentially a spacious parking lot. The location cannot be beat, though. Very close to all sorts of restaurants and shops and walking distance to the beach. So as far as proximity goes, its a 10. For ambiance, its about a 3. There are 2 rather large alligators and a wild boar that frequent the property, but we have yet to see them.

It was fantastic hanging out and catching up with our friends, and even though Divagirl’s friend, Emma, was sick when we arrived, her other friend, Tonia, was healthy and ready to play!

Good Samaritan

I’m not quite sure how to start this, so I suppose I’ll start at the beginning.

Last night after dinner and a late night of fun we returned home to find an envelope taped to our door. It was labeled with our last name and site number, and contained a generous amount money.

It was also from an anonymous individual or family.

Designerd and I talked about it all night, thinking what an amazingly nice gesture it was, and how it was great to see altruism alive and well on the road. We’re very grateful for the selfless act, and although we don’t neeeeeeed the monetary gift, we’ll be holding on to it until the opportunity presents itself to pay it forward.

To our anonymous good samaritan, thank you for your kindness and generosity toward others, we only wish we could thank you in person :)
