Day 3 Hattiesburg to Canton, GA







We made our way up through Mississippi on a very green route-beautiful but strange for us, coming from the desert. On our way we crossed over the Chunky River-which we loved. The name proved great hours of fun for our family-I know, easily amused...







We also stopped off at an country store where we browsed antiques and bought boiled peanuts (YUM!) WE zipped through Alabama, with a nod to Ricky Bobby as we passed Talladega Raceway-Shaken'Bake!



Towards the afternoon, we meandered on the outskirts of Atlanta (thanks Ms. Garmin) and arrived in Canton in the early evening. Canton is about 45 miles north of Atlanta proper. I liken it to Maricopa and Phoenix, except a WHOLE Lot Greener....Aubreigh had been monitoring our progress by phone up to this point, so we checked into our hotel and went and picked her up so she could join us for dinner at a local restaurant for. ..what else? Mexican food (her choice obviously).



A humorous AZ dweller anecdote here: the restaurant was crowded with a wait time of 30 min. or so. We asked if the patio was full and the hostess said, "No, if you want to eat out there?" She sounded surprised, but we made our way out to the patio and enjoyed glorious weather (and had the patio to ourselves). It was about 80 degrees with little or no humidity, but comments from passers by clued us in to why we were alone out there---it was way too hot to be outside! Please......

LOL thats awesome, doesn't it seem to be unusually hot this year. Each year even though it's the same as the last I start to notice the burning and the sweating. Nonetheless I am so excited that you had a good vacation and that you're home safe. Keep the posting. I LOVE IT!!! I mean I love YOU!
