So, all is well, but we arrived back at the campground after dark. I was so hoping that Mom would get to see the Llamas that she had met before at Grandma's Campground one other time when we flew her out of Louisville. I did get a picture of the Llamas earlier that day.
Sunday we took off - headed toward N Carolina to visit our old and dear friend, Emily.
Beautiful scenery driving thru the Appalachian mountains.
Emily was one of the very first people I got to know in Fort Lauderdale in the early 80s. She lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for 50 years, but when she met Donovan a couple years ago, she soon decided that living with him in his home in the N Carolina hills (mountains?) was the place for her. So, she packed up her cats and all her belongings, sold her house and here she is. It was so nice to see Mom get to visit her too. Emily and Mom have quite literally traveled around the world together. (Here's a short clip of their trip to Bhutan)
We were hoping to park our motorhome at Emily's and have a longer visit, but the last half mile of the road is not paved or graded. They take their truck up it all the time, but no way we could take Big Boy up that stretch. Even the paved road up to the bottom of their hill was a bit of an adventure in a large motorhome.
We did unhook the Honda and drove up to the house to visit a while.

So, after a short visit, we head out on the road again because we did have a Plan C - there's a Thousand Trails park just south of Winston Salem called Forest Lake. We knew we could get there before dark. All is well, it's a beautiful park *and* it has a hot tub.
