It was very cloudy this morning. Not a bad thing when you are going to be driving. It was a little cooler but still humid. We were again up early and at assisted living to have breakfast with Mama Ruby at 7:00. The new chef is doing a good job. Today we had pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream and sausage or bacon. Very nice way to start the day. Good breakfast and nice visit. Anne then got her hair cut and then we were on the road again. Yea! We are really enjoying FRED 2.
We arrived in Cedartown, GA without incident, parked, set up and picked up a pizza for a really late lunch. We are so thankful for another uneventful travel day. Several years ago Murphy-Harpst Childrens Center installed six RV sites with the help of NOMADS and volunteers from Due West UMC and maybe others. The campground looks out over some beautiful pastures with the Silver Comet Rail Trail just beyond the pastures. We really enjoy this campground. It’s private, quiet and we usually see deer and turkey, cows and horses most days. We will be here for the next three weeks. Our first team members will arrive mid-day tomorrow and then others on Saturday. This time we will be rebuilding the horse barn along with some other items. The Center has a therapeutic equestrian program for the children. We are sure to learn more about this over the next few days. We are scheduled to meet with Randy, the facilities manager and NOMADS contact, first thing in the morning. We are looking forward to a productive and fun three weeks.
This evening shortly before dark we got our bikes unpacked and road about 4 miles on the Silver Comet. It was a really hilly section so a bit of a challenge but lots of fun. Love riding the paved rail trails and being in the quiet peaceful setting. Hope you are having a good week. Please remember to pray for Max’s cousin Janet as she has surgery tomorrow.
