Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. ~Joshua 1:9
It's been a long time coming, but my husband, Danny, and I are about to embark on our longest road trip ever in all the years we've been married. The purpose? To spend Thanksgiving with daughter, Sarah, son-in-law, John, and the three grand grands!
Ever since Danny's last heart procedure, we have disavowed expressways altogether. We'd rather ride the calmer roads less taken, discovering new sights and adventures along the way. That's why we are leaving so early, this Monday to be exact, and will make the most of our leisurely journey to Raleigh, North Carolina.
Our first stop? The Ridges Resort in Young Harris, Georgia.
Isn't it a lovely place? We will arrive there by mid-afternoon on Monday, so should be able to roam the extensive grounds and enjoy our one night stay.
On Tuesday, we'll head up to a cozy cabin in NC called End of the Road.
We will spend several days there before resuming our trip northward. We plan to visit a local waterfall and, perhaps, a winery in the immediate area.
Friday, it's on to Raleigh! Look at this amazing Air BnB Danny's booked.
This space will allow us to entertain the family there, if we choose, and Virginia, our oldest granddaughter, will be able to spend all the nights she wants with us as the house has a second bedroom.
All that being said, this blog will be my last until the first week in December, as we plan to once more take our time going home when Thanksgiving is over. I hope you all will forgive me in advance if I don't indulge in reading/commenting on your blogs while I am out of town. I promise, I'll take plenty of photos, and will have lots of stories to share with you upon my return.
We are praying for safe travels, knowing our God is with us wherever we go. I humbly as for your prayers, too.
Wishing you and yours a most Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
