After four nights in the beautiful Lake Powhatan, Chip and I reluctantly packed up the campsite and departed Asheville. We weren't ready to leave, but our site was already reserved for another camper and since Chip was due back at work on Monday anyway, we figured it was time to go. To lift my spirits, my sweet man suggested a stop in Gainesville on the way home. We could stay overnight in Paynes Prairie again, visit with my girls. Well, that put the smile back on my face! We got out the map and planned a route, decided to stop in Macon, GA for the night and then to Gainesville on Saturday.
We made one stop along the way, in Hendersonville, NC at Justus Orchard.

|Chip couldn't say no to the fried apple pie!|
|and we both fell in love with these little guys!|
By lunchtime we were back on the country road, passed a corn field which was a foreign sight to us!
We rolled into Macon before dinner, checked into the campground at Lake Tobesofkee. The lake view was so pretty, just wish they hadn't cleared so many trees from the campsite, quite a culture shock coming from the woods of NC!

|What's for dinner?|
|Sitting under a giant Mellow Mushroom!|
|Super-yummy veggie pizza with vegan cheese|
The food and atmosphere were worth the stress, though. We had an enjoyable dinner, returned to the RV and hit the sack early, planning to make an early departure the next morning. This was not to be, however, stay tuned for more of our adventure!
