Time for a Pause


Today’s route took us along a lovely stretch of highway in western North Carolina, across the northwest corner of Georgia, and into Alabama. It feels strange to be traveling without the T@B-400 behind us but it makes sense in this June heat with a family visit in Texas as our destination. A couple of hotel nights and family hospitality should work nicely. As the day wore on we were watching storm clouds ahead and checking radar on our Accuweather app. We’re finally into the storm with hail a distinct possibility and still an hour away from the hotel in Bessemer where we have reservations. Guess it’s time to stop and take shelter. There’s a Walmart at this exit. Maybe we can duck in and wait the storm out. Perhaps walk some laps, get some steps on the Fitbits, and possibly do a little shopping.

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
