Let The Vacationing Begin

I arrived at the beach around nine last evening.

It was an excellent drive. Except for the one little incident near the South Carolina-Georgia border…

I-95 through Georgia has been under construction for approximately the last century and it shows little sign of improvement. Passing through the "completed" section north of the last bit of construction, I was following a truck pulling multiple trailers when he dropped the right wheels of one or more of them off the main roadbed onto the apron of the road.

Correcting the situation caused both the trailers to fishtail wildly. I slowed to 55 to put a bit more space between me and the wildly swerving truck when the truck behind me (who was coming up on me way too fast) swerved around me causing a bit of fishtailing of his own load. It was a minor thing, both drivers got their rigs back under control, and nothing really happened.

So, it was a little fun, but a mostly uneventful drive. It was hot, but since I was in an air-conditioned car most of the time, what did I care? It was a good day for driving. I have to put a bit of laundry through the washer and drier, and then, it is time to get down to the serious business of doing some hardcore relaxing!

Wherever you are today, I hope you'll have a great day!

Did you take Sadie with you? I would have loved to meet her. Was great seeing you in St. Pete!

Dear Anonymous Reader:

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. Yes, If by "Sadie" you mean "Saga," I brought her with me. The photo on the blog post yesterday (on which you commented) was Saga laying on the couch in the Beach House Great Room.

You seem to have the advantage of me. We met in St. Pete? Then I have to assume I know you. I have a couple guesses who you may be but will not go into them here.

Have a great day and thanks for reading and commenting!

Don
