Sabin’s Vacation 2023 - From Land to Sea Day #2- Georgia to North Carolina

by Nina Sabin - Travel Blog

Today we woke up to the beautiful brisk morning of Northern Georgia. The air felt much cooler than what we were experiencing in Florida.

One of our favorite places to visit in Northern Georgia is the Nottley Dam. The dam is owned and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority which built the dam in the early 1940s as a flood control structure.

We enjoyed the morning at my-laws church and then lunch at Ingles Cafe. Who knew how much we would enjoy eating at a cafe in a supermarket. It has endless choices of meals from a salad bar to subs, to sushi, to hot Asian meals, to pretty much anything you can imagine

After lunch, we were back on the road again. This time we only had 212 miles to drive. We were off to our next destination where we are visiting some close friends from Saudi who live near Charlotte, North Carolina.

Our drive went a lot safer today. I don’t know if that is because they drive better in Georgia and North Carolina. Or because it is Sunday and less trucks were on the road. Either way, it was a pleasant drive.

We especially enjoyed the scenery, stopping at lookouts to admire the views of these two states.

The roads through the countryside were winding and hilly but that was a enjoyable change from the flat straight roads in Florida.

About five hours and two stops later we arrived at our friend’s home which happens to be on a beautiful lake.

We enjoyed the sounds of the crickets and admired the lake view till the sunset.

Tomorrow we will be exploring the High Rock Lake.

High Rock Lake is a reservoir located on the Yadkin River in central North Carolina.

The lake is know to be a great

location for sailing, power boating, paddling and fishing.

Keep a lookout for tomorrow’s adventures in North Carolina.
