We're Off To See The Donkeys
Okay, folks, guess where we're camping at? Those of you that read my blog regularly, know that there's only two places we go to that have donkeys, so that should be a BIG hint. Give up, or did you guess that we are currently at our favorite Georgia State Park, General Coffee in Nichols, GA.? Yep, we're back here again, and in the same campsite (#47) that we were in when we were here at New Year's. We liked this campsite a lot, and hoped it wouldn't be taken. We got lucky. Although there isn't a lot of campers here, there is more than we normally see. Our closest neighbor is that gigantic Prevost bus that Gary snapped a picture of. It's nice to see something like that instead of the typical modern day boring motorhome. At least it's got style. And it's shiny. I like shiny. We got here around 11AM. After setting me up for our stay, and having a couple of sandwiches for lunch, Gary headed into nearby Douglas, GA. to look through a couple of his favorite antique malls. He bought two things and only spent ten dollars, so it was a pretty cheap afternoon's entertainment. He left the radio on for me to listen to. I sang along with a few songs, and quickly fell asleep. It's so peaceful here that falling asleep is VERY easy to do. On the way back from antique shopping, Gary stopped at Heritage Farm. It is located inside the park and just around the corner from the park office. His mission, as it always is when we are here, was to feed Poncho and Jenny, our donkey friends. Unlike our last two visits, they were in the same pasture together, along with Pepper the horse. Pepper is very aggressive, and chases the donkeys away, thinking he will get all the carrots. He gets an occasional carrot for distraction purposes, but 99% of the carrots go to the donkeys. Gary got some great pictures of them today. Aren't they cute? We will be here for four days, and I don't dare blink because I know if I do, it will suddenly be time to go. Time always flies when you're having fun, and this place is nothing but fun. This is the first stop on a fairly long camping adventure. I'll let you know about our next stop soon, but for now, I intend to enjoy every second of our stay here at General Coffee. If you've been here, you know what a GREAT place it is. If you've never visited, bring some carrots and come on over. Poncho and Jenny can't wait to meet you!
