Day 8

Posted 01-29-2009 at 05:36 PM by gypsygirl1

We've been on the road for about a week now... We made is from Detroit to Louisville the first day. The roads were good and the ride was uneventful. We got to Scottsboro AL the next night and stayed for 3 nights at Goose Pond Colony Campground. Very nice campground with lots of trees and good-sized lots. The Unclaimed Baggage Store is in Scottsboro, but we were disappointed. We thought all the stuff (mostly clothing) was overpriced and nothing overly exciting. We found the area around Scottsboro very beautiful and enjoyed our drives through the area.
We left there, not taking the interstate, but choosing instead to go through the mountains. Not as scenic as you would think, but a nice long drive to Foley AL. We're staying here for a week at the Plantation RV Park at Wolf Bay in Foley. Very beautiful park with nice private bathroom facilities. All the people here are very friendly and helpful. We had a couple of minor repairs done to the trailer -- the fridge wouldn't stay lit, and we had a broken pipe on one of the outside drains. We found a wonderful local repair guy who fixed both problems for us and was extremely fair in his cost.
We have a friend who lives in Foley, and it just so happened that her friend, who is involved with the Harlem Globetrotters, was in town for a performance (in Biloxi MS). We got tickets to the show and took the 2 hour drive to Biloxi and thoroughly enjoyed the show. We stayed overnight at the IP Casino and drove back on the slower road along the water. Very relaxing, peaceful drive.
