Moving right along............

We are on our way to St. Andrews State Park in Panama City, FL, for four months:  from 6/1 until 10/1.  

On the way we are making a couple of stops.  First at Florence Marina State Park in Georgia on the large Walter F. George Reservior.  The campground here is small with only 46 sites but it is very well maintained with many large oaks and pines.  No "overgrown" brush, etc., between the sites.  The bath house is new and exceptionally nice.

Site #20

Today we drove over to Providence Canyon State Park, also in Georgia.  They call this the little grand canyon but to me it resembles Bryce Canyon in Utah, only much smaller.  I would have liked to walk to the bottom on one of the trails but knees won't permit it!  

On the way back we stopped in Lumpkin, GA, at  a local BBQ joint, 4 Way Stop BarBQue, appropriately named for it's corner location at the 4 way stop, of course.  Very interesting place:  the owner lives in the large older house and after cooking barbecue on his front porch for himself for several years, he decided why not cook for lots of others?  So he made the large hallway the inside eating area and the large front porch the outside eating areaThe kitchen is in the front corner of the house and the waitress opens the window to serve the "to go" customers.  Usually open Thursday through Sunday, we lucked up as they were open today to feed the crew shooting a movie in the areaFood was great too!

 Part of the living quarters, roped off living room between kitchens (2).  More living quarters were on the left side of the hall.

Tomorrow we are heading further south to Lake Seminole in Georgia and in Florida.
