Savannah, Tennessee Day 2 (GA477)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart October 17th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted May 1, 2013…

The motorhome is parked at Moose Lodge #1918 in Savannah, Tennessee. We expect to move on later this morning.

 

 

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about two miles to downtown Savannah. Our first stop of the day was at the Tennessee River Museum. You can read all about this museum by clicking their official website link…
http://www.tennesseerivermuseum.org/

 

 

The museum presents the river’s history from the beginning of time. Being a photographer, I particularly enjoyed the old black and white photos of the riverboats. Most museums simply show the photos…this museum actually tells you about the photograph you are viewing.

 

 

Here are some of the photos I took yesterday…

Crossing the street we headed for an art gallery. Savannah is a very clean and pleasant place…

047

 

 

 

 

 

The art gallery was closed, so we decided to cross the street again and check out the Hardin County Courthouse. It has a beautiful marble circular staircase. If you are a regular follower of my Blog, you know I love to photograph these things capturing patterns, forms, shapes, shadows, etc…

Our waitress was an experienced and helpful Carline Guthrie who has worked there for 15 years…

She helped me to decide on the 1/2 smoked chicken and the fried potato skins covered with two cheeses and real bacon bits. Very tasty indeed…

Since we had learned so much about the Tennessee River, we decided to get a closer look and drove to the nearby Riverside Park. This first photo is of the bridge we crossed over with the motorhome on U.S. Highway 64. The river is currently very high at about flood stage and is expected to crest in the next couple of days flooding low-lying roads…

Another delightful day. Other than the fact that it was, once again, too hot and humid as testified by this photo taken at 8:00 PM when it was still 83 degrees…with lots of humidity…

Enjoying interesting places and museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Fort Pulaski – Cockspur Island, Georgia

The motorhome is parked the Thousand Trails RV Resort located in Bow, a few miles north of Burlington, Washington. I’ve been here several times in past years. I’ll depart here tomorrow.

I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

Mary’s personal to-do list plate, which can only be handled by herself, continues to over-flow. Recently we acknowledged that her meeting up with me in September, just is not going to happen.   😦

I’ll next likely see her when I arrive at her home in November. A friend recently expressed a concern about the status of our relationship. Not to worry…it continues to function per our original agreement when we met in October, 2008. That is…I remain on the road and she will join me when her other life allows. We talk every day on the phone…sometimes more than once. It’s just the way life is!

On July 12th, I blogged about the great Civil War photo book I found in a Goodwill store. If you missed that posting, here’s the link…http://wp.me/pDCku-ckv

I’ve really enjoyed reading this book reminding me of the many places I’ve been that played an important role in the Civil War. I’ve decided it would be a great time to re-visit some of the places and share them with you. If I’m writing a blog entry about a place, means I read about it in this great Civil War photo book with nearly 4,000 photographs and I have been there! I’ll continue these Blog postings until I’ve until I do them all in my collection.

Savannah, Tennessee

The motorhome is currently parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. My current departure date is scheduled for December 1st.

During this time I’ll be attending to my cataract surgery, cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to the motorhome and Bronco in addition to assisting Mary with her activities. None of these items are particularly exciting to write about…so…instead I’ll be showing Picasa Web Albums from our 682 day, 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States. It was Mary’s second circumnavigation and the sixth for myself.

Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily. So come back tomorrow.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savannah,_Tennessee

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!

Savannah, Tennessee

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

The cataract surgery on my right eye was successfully accomplished at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California on October 9th and I’m in my recovery mode. I have a post-op exam scheduled for October 24th. Also at that time I’ll have a pre-op exam for my left eye. That surgery is scheduled for November 6th.

Yesterday was a sunny day and 77 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 74 degrees.

The cataract surgery on my right eye was successfully accomplished at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California on October 9th and I’m in my recovery mode. I have a post-op exam scheduled for October 24th. Also at that time I’ll have a pre-op exam for my left eye. That surgery is scheduled for November 6th.

Yesterday was a sunny day and 76 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 77 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
