Scooter Poopin' In Southeast Georgia

Yesterday, we took off zigzagging around Southeastern Georgia. If one could ignore the bone chilling wind, the day was picturesque. The sun was incredibly bright making the sky like unto an enormous blue diamond. It was charming. Like a prelude to Heaven. How could we resist!? Our first stop was the metropolis of Valdosta. We lunched at Smok'n Pig on Valdosta Road.

I just had to snap a pic of the pink pig BBQ grill. Hubby burst my bubble, though, when he said that the first time he cooked on it, the paint would chip. Oh well ...

Sated with good 'ol southern BBQ, we traveled further west to the little community of Dixie (how original, right?!) in neighboring Brooks County.
Winter Road, Dixie, Georgia

The above picture is downtown Dixie, a sleepy little burg, never destined for greatness. I never knew this county had such easy to ride, meandering, shady, scenic roads! Now I want to move there and ride every day.
Emanuel AME Church
County Road 78, Dixie

I snapped a photo of this black church only because it has the most unusual architecture for the area. It must have been built on a shoestring and perhaps with more than one chef in the kitchen.
What is the round room for? I wonder. The front had one style, the windows don't fit the design of the front, and the back is ... well, unusual. At any rate, it was interesting.

One nice thing about old age is it doesn't take much to amuse me anymore. *lol*

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is blessed.

Wow! What a beautiful day for a ride. Those blue skies and Georgia back roads may lead me home. I love photographs of old churches. These are great. I hope you enjoyed your ride.

I wish I was in the land of cotton. Old times there are not forgotten, look away, look away, look away Dixie Land!
I wanna move to Dixie, Georgia just so I can tell everyone I'm from "Dixie"! I love that! Looks pretty too.
I don't do Facebook & I don't know if you do or not. My Mama, Dot Payton has a page (or what ever you call it) called "Forgotten Georgia"...I think. Anyway it's got pictures from all over Georgia that people send or post or whatever you call it. You should send those to her. Pretty neat place you went to. The church IS interesting. And now I don't want a fried deer steak sandwich for supper but some good pig!!

I've driven through that area on my way to Thomasville a few times.
Blessed you.
