What a Weekend!

April 17, 2022

Friday, we rode the motorcycle back to B. J. Reece’s Apple Barn and pick up a peck of Elite Crisp apples. We then rode into Ellijay for dinner at the Cajun Depot. I will just say I cannot recommend the Cajun Depot and leave it at that.

Friday evening at Talona Ridge RV Resort, we sat under the moon and stars next to one of the fire pits by the lodge, listening to live music. Bruce was drinking wine and I drank lemonade. Nox even came along. She sat in my lap until I had to get up. She happily sat on Bruce’s lap. We made new friends while we sat in the moonlight by the fire.

On Saturday, we started getting ready to pull out. Bruce completed the 24 hour and 12 hour check list. I made two sandwiches sourdough loaves and chicken and sausage soup with leftovers in the fridge. I also prepared for the up coming travel day.

In the evening, we took Nox for a walk around the RV Resort and down to the dog park.

The dog park has two sides, one for big dogs and one for small dogs. Nox was the only one playing in the park.

We got Nox to run through the tubes. She had fun, but seemed to think that it was better to run around the tube.

We walked back up the ridge to where we were parked.

On the way past the lodge, we realized the lodge was open and there was live music. We dropped Nox off at the RV and headed over to the lodge.

Quinn Leach

Quinn was an excellent guitarist. We enjoyed his playing very much. We wished we had caught the entire show.

Today was moving day. We got everything put away and the RV hitched by 9:30 am Eastern Time. We went through some light rain on our way to River Ridge Retreat in Guntersville, AL. The RV retreat is in the middle of nature. We arrived at 12:30 pm Central Time. It was about a 4 hour drive, plus some time for a couple of stops for bathroom breaks and a train.

After lunch, we walked down to the pier. We saw many different types of birds.

Lake Guntersville is just as beautiful as I remembered. We lived in Huntsville, AL over 25 years ago and we would sail on Lake Guntersville.

As we were leaving the pier, I noticed a beaver swimming. At least, we think it was a beaver. What do you think?

  1. Julia,

    It sounds as though you and Bruce have the prep for hitting the road down to a science. Thanks for all the pictures and commentary. I tried your egg + milk + bread crumbs on both chicken breasts and salmon filet – both came out very good! Thanks for the tip.

    1. We have our check list and we use them consistently. It makes life so much easier! I am pleased that you were able to use breading trick. 🙂
