Left Cheaha in the late morning. Stopped at Dandy RV in
for coffee and cookies and it was. Dandy, I mean. As I mentioned in my last post, the lounge
was a nice place to hang-out. Anniston
Then on to
where I stopped at Cracker Barrel thinking they might have wifi but no
luck. However, they did have some bacon,
eggs, biscuits, and gravy that made me very happy indeed. Earlier in the day, I was too late for the breakfast buffet at
Cheaha’s Lodge and I just couldn’t stop thinking about how good a very large breakfast
would be. Gadsden
Check it out, Carolyn @ amigoingsomeplace. See what the competition is doing? (I think Carolyn enjoys inspiring envy in the rest of us with her mega-breakfast photos).

Got to the Desoto campground later than I planned – about 5:15. Still plenty of daylight to hook-up though. No problems with that part tonight except that I am supposed to have cable but I must not have it hooked up correctly. That’s OK – I brought several movies and have some good books on Kindle.
It is quiet here, at least for now. They expect a full complement in the campground this weekend. The leaves are changing far in advance than back home. That, and the perfect temps, makes this area even lovelier.
– a well-kept secret.

I’m looking forward to sight-seeing town tomorrow. My parents are from here and we visited often when I was small. I remember everything – including how the Ben Franklin Five & Dime smelled. It’s gone, of course, along with the drugstore with the soda fountain. I’ll probably park on
Think I’ll go stretch out and do the crossword. All I did today was drive 90 miles, have a late lunch, and stop at Wal-Mart, yet I’m pleasantly tired.
I’ve got the fantastic fan on and the canopy windows open providing the ideal cross-breeze. Did I mention I love my home-on-wheels?
