In Which We Spend the Day on the Relentless Race Track

An early start seemed to be a good idea. The plan was to get through downtown Atlanta before the rush hour. Well...I think rush hour has no start or finish in Atlanta. We left the motel and were driving through Atlanta at 6:30 a.m., and it was bumper to bumper at 70 mph. What a rat race. But I must say that downtown Atlanta is beautiful in the dark - it was all lighted up - spectacular looking. Dick couldn't really appreciate it because he definitely had to keep his eyes on the road!

South Georgia is remembered for cotton fields, pecan trees and road construction. Next year we'll have a brand new road.

At Ashburn we pulled off for beverages. Did you know that Ashburn is the home of the National Fire Ant Festival?

Arrived at Dylan's around 5 p.m.
