Reflections While We Get In The Groove

Monday, Memorial Day, was our last day at Tallulah Gorge State Park, an assignment that we both enjoyed immensely.  Before we left I just had to sit through the movie as well as walk along the North Trail one last time.  It is really a beautiful state park and we enjoyed sharing it with all the visitors who showed up at the park.  Here are some of the people that we worked with at the center.  You saw a picture of West in an earlier post.  Unfortunately we didn’t get pictures of all of the team.

Back in another life time but, not that many years ago, we lived and worked in Georgia (2003-2004).  One of our day trips was to Amicalola Falls State Park which is home to a 729 foot waterfall.  Amicalola is a Cherokee word that means tumbling water and, as you can see from the pictures, the water was in fact tumbling.  This is another beautiful place in Georgia along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

The Appalachian Trail Approach, which is an eight and a half mile trail that winds past Amicalola Falls and leads to Springer Mountain, begins in Amicalola State Park.  Springer Mountain is known for being the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail.

Yesterday turned out to be a good day; Judy took Jackie to her doctor’s appointment.  The doctor was pleased to hear that reinforcements had arrived and, now, Jackie just might follow his advice and rest.  While they were gone, I stayed home all alone with the two grand daughters but, they were very, very good so no problem!!  Once they returned, Judy began with some of housekeeping.  This morning we’ll return again to continue getting caught up on the household chores.

Hang in there, next week we will take a day trip to somewhere in Middle Tennessee.  We’re still not sure where because there is still a lot we haven’t seen or done in the area.  In the meantime, we hope all your travels will be safe.
