Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

Russ and I became friends in Perdido Cove with a lovely couple, Wayne and Linda.  They were the center of the night life each evening as a half dozen or more of us gathered together, they had the view of the tug boats and the waterway.  Well, when I began to plan our route out of Florida and through Alabama and Tennessee and then into the Smokey Mountains, Wayne said, bring the map to me.  He knows all the south, actually.  So leaving Chattanooga we did not go to Knoxville, but he wanted us to see a very scenic area in NW Georgia where he and Linda live-Young Harris.  He knew of a remarkable campground, isolated a bit but still close to everything.  This was in Haiwassee. Well the drive from Chattanooga there was on narrow two lane highways, with plenty of up and down, and then my side of the RV almost over the River was very exciting OMG!  Russ knows he should never have me be a passenger on those narrow road trips, as I am sure he will drive us right into the river.

The RV place is beautiful, rolling country grasses and forests and the whole valley has lake and river winding through it.  I think it might be the prettiest place I have ever been. In Haiwassee the campground was River’s Bend.  Creek was stocked with trout and place was landscaped beautifully.

For some reason I keep forgetting to say anything about the Southern accents.  They all don’t come across the same.  The order of words, the level of education, the country or city they live in-absolutely delightful.  What I have enjoyed is that I don’t try to imitate anyone, but in my head I play back something someone said and I realize I am remembering it with the accent.

Linda and Wayne live on top of one of the Hills and have a scrumptious house and huge lawns.  They entertained us for the first evening in her country creative porch room they enclosed.  Oh, the views!!!  They also belong to a Resort with pool both indoor and outdoor.  Linda took me to swim and have lunch by the pool.  I can’t believe they are members of this magnificent spot.  What an incredible afternoon she gave me.  Girl talk endlessly!

These two are the porch-very informal compared to the rest of the home.  They enclosed it, and it is perfect for family.
