My husband agreed that I needed to celebrate my 58th birthday all weekend and said we should toil not. (I suspect an ulterior motive here ...) That's OK. I'm a willing participant. "Throw me in that brier patch ...!" *smile*
For this Day Trip we stayed mostly in Ware County, Georgia. Riding from our home to Waycross, we proceeded north on Highway 82 (Corridor Z) to the unincorporated community of Millwood. From Millwood, turn on the Manor to Millwood Road and travel all the way to Manor. (Pronounced "Mainor". So named after the pioneering family of that area.) That part of the trip was especially enjoyable. The road is in dire need of resurfacing but if one pays attention to that, it's quite fun. In Manor, crossing Highway 84, it becomes Suwannee Chapel Road. Stay on it until it dead ends into Swamp Road. Hang a left on Swamp Road and stay on it all the way back to Waycross.
Abandoned train tracks.
We took time to reflect
on how this community
once was a bustling little town.
Yellow planted Daisy's and a red Honda
go good together.
Trains are the arteries
that connect our communities
to the outside world.
Enjoying an ice cream sandwich.
I hadn't enjoyed one literally in years
and Sweetie tempted me.
(That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. lol)
All in all our trip was a little over 100 miles. One can view Blueberry farms, vegetable farms, small cattle ranches, piney woods, swamp, abandoned homes and train related items, and other interesting features. It was truly a nice day. And we got to see a lot of what is our ever vanishing Georgia before it is lost to history.
