The day we arrived at our Eastbank campsite beside Lake Seminole, Georgia the weather was beautiful, warm and sunny and the lake shone bright blue. Relaxing in our lawn chairs, we were serenaded by the Northern Mockingbirds and Bluebirds while we watched the Osprey dive for fish and the Diving Lesser Scaup Ducks bobbed on the lake until sunset.
Temperatures were somewhat cooler the next day but we were able to enjoy a long bike ride beside the lake to and beyond the Woodruff Dam. Dixie loves the grass there and is happy taking longer strolls in the cooler temperatures. We had another pretty sunset and then all hell broke loose. Up came the winds and down came rains and the temperatures. The following morning the lake was choppy and churned up and carried a brown hue. Twenty MPH winds blew straight out of the north. We needed many layers against the chill to go walking and sitting outside was too uncomfortable.
The weather continued cool but at least the sun returned. It had enough warmth in it to touch the buds on the London Plane Tree beside us, and each day, a few more leaves unfurled. We had another week booked at another ACE lakeside camp north of us near Fort Gains GA but decided that we may as well begin heading home despite the chilly temperatures there. We were really looking forward to being back home.
Frosty temperatures produced a beautiful misty morning.

Our last day was beautiful and warm and a mellow sunset was a nice way to end our vacation.
A sunny Friday morning escorted us out of the park in Georgia and north into Alabama.
We overnighted at a Crackerbarrel where we had dinner and breakfast when they opened at 6:00 am. before heading north again. We made good time with lighter traffic and no road works on a Saturday. Heading out of Alabama and into Tennessee we drove through heavy rain but things cleared later in the afternoon as we travelled through Kentucky and into Indiana.

We were a handful of hours away from Bayfield but needed a good rest before our final journey. With a weather prediction for a nighttime low of 37 F. we decided to check in to Fireside RV Park in Indiana where we could hook up to power and run our room and mattress heaters so nothing would freeze up including us. We plugged in the engine block heater too. A frosty morning greeted us and our trouble-free drive went well. Michigan went by quickly and we zoomed through the border with our NEXUS Pass and only began seeing snow about half an hour from home. Dixie was overjoyed to see her backyard filled with snow. It’s always a wonderful feeling to be back home!
Crossing into Canada we see that most of the ice has cleared away.
Our backyard is about six inches deep in snow.
Spring Equinox is tomorrow!
