Arizona rest stop.
New Mexico, just like Mexico except newer.
That’s Mexico! Just wanted to post that because I think it’s cool I have Canada, US and Mexico now on this trip log.
So I stopped to eat in this tiny little place in Texas somewhere. The only place that’s open or still standing since everything else around it is just ruins and one gas station. But they have a John Madden Room!
Halfway through Texas. Road is still pretty.
St. Anthony Basilica
Welcome to Texas!
After all the great southern fried food I need a healthy dinner. The butter beans in Macon Georgia were cooked with butter and bacon!!!
Crossing the Mississippi River
I just pushed the Home button.
Henry wasn’t lying: New Orleans is a dump.
Beignets from Morning Call. They’ve been making these by hand since 1870.
Bridge over Mobile River
Driving through sweet home Alabama to New Orleans.
I think I’m gonna need my passport again.
St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Macon Georgia
Remind me to tell you about this house later.
Stopped for lunch in Macon, Georgia. This place is in the middle of the woods. It’s actually someone’s house and you sit on the porch. The menue is different every day depending on what the owner wants to cook. It’s awesome!
Leopold’s Ice Cream! Rum biscuit and Georgia peach ice cream with pineapple and huckleberry topping.
Another beautiful square. There are 24 in the historic district!
Dinner at Tubby’s
Bridge into Savannah
Going down to River Street
The tour guide.
The Avenue of the Oaks is 1.5 miles long then another half mile walk to the original home. All ruins now.
Wormsloe Site. I’m sure you’ve seen it in movies.
My room with the door open on the left.
Can’t get enough of this park!
Chipewa Square. Forest Gump’s bench right in front. Spoiler alert, no actual bench.
St. John the Baptist.
Spanish moss at the Colonial Cemetery. This moss grows all over the city and it’s now like a trademark image of the city.
First house with indoor plumbing in Savannah. Built in 1819. In 1825 Lafayette stayed here and gave a speech in remembrance of the Revolution.
This house is now the parish hall for St. John’s Episcopal Church, but it was the headquarters for General William Tecumseh Sherman during the Civil War.
The park across the street from where I’m staying.
An animal hospital
Found the place in a very quiet dim lit street. Creepier than my room. Wait till you see that.
Walking to dinner in Savannah
The US 95, Purple Heart Memorial Highway. So pretty
South Carolina: just like North Carolina, except it’s soith.
Lunch and off to Savannah
The main dining room inside the Biltmore.
“Almost heaven, West Virginia blue ridge mountains...”
And now I can’t see in the fog!
Beautiful lake on Julian Price Memorial Park along the Parkway.
A gift shop on the parkway
This is a shot outside the Parkway. You can see it as it bridges over this highway. It’s a very unique road built only as a scenic drive. You can’t just get on and off. There are these “gaps”. This one where I got off for has is called Fancy Gap and it’s still in Virginia.
Rain is coming!
This what I see out of my window every few yards! It’s crazy beautiful!!!!
Cahas Mountain overlook and the car I traded for back in Boston.
Top of Roanoke Mountain
The Roanoke River
Back on Blue Ridge Parkway “America’s most scenic drive”
The Appalachian Trail

This one is for you George. A memorial to the Army in WWII
World War II Memorial
Korean War Memorial
On the mtero from Virginia to DC
Xmass tree farm
George Washington’s Headquarters at the Battle of Brandywine at Chadds Ford in Pennsylvania.
A soccer park right next to airport terminal
