Holiday Park at Lake Benbrook

On our way back to Florida, we’ve stopped for a few days in the Ft. Worth, Texas area. 

We’re in our RV overlooking lake Benbrook in Holiday Park. It’s a US Army corp property. 


The sites are very nice, although most of them are not very level. The sites have electric and water connections but no sewer. There are dump stations in the park. 

There are a few miles of hiking trails as well as whatever water activities you’d want to do. 

There’s a lot of wildlife around, including predators, so be careful with pets. Daisy and I came across a large cat track on the trails. The same day the gate worker showed a picture of a panther crossing the road near the front gate. 


One major complaint we have is that the only entrance gate is locked at 10pm and you can’t get in or out until 6 am. This policy seems insane to us. I really don’t know how someone thought this policy was a good idea. 

We’ve got a couple of days left and we’ll continue east.

Back to where we began

  We are back in Georgia. Well, actually we’ve been here since the first of April but we haven’t been blogging much. Honestly, there’s not much to say.

While we’re happy to be back for awhile to see friends and our daughter, it kind of feels like we’re just doing our time until the next adventure.

I’ve been working and traveling, as usual, but it just feels strange to be back. I guess it’s because of being in such a familiar place. For the last 16 months we’ve been living in unfamiliar places, meeting new people, and exploring.

We are staying in a cute little cabin on Lake Allatoona in Acworth, GA. As you can see, the area is beautiful. This is the view from our back deck.  

Daisy has learned a new game. She can drop her ball off the deck and it rolls all the way down the hill into the water. The first time, I let her go get it. Yuck! Won’t do that again.  The difference in the amount of traffic, in the short time we’ve been gone, is astonishing! Maybe it’s just because we’ve been living in more laid back, smaller communities. I’m not sure but I would swear that everyone moved to Georgia as soon as we left.

In 10 days, we head to Ocean Springs, MS. Until then, we have a few more favorite places to eat and some friends to see. I’m sure we’ll have more adventures to share very soon.

My face hurts

I don’t know why the weather hates us, but I think it does.
We’re back in Georgia for a week and its brutal cold. At least for Georgia.
A house right next to a lake probably doesn’t help. A couple more days and we head further south. Maybe we’ll find temps above freezing.

Holiday Marina Harbor

It’s been a few days since our last post.  It’s been kind of a whirlwind since we got here to Acworth, GA.  We’re staying in a small cabin on Lake Allatoona in Acworth, Georgia at a place called Holiday Marina Harbor.  It’s kind of nice back here.  Quiet and nobody has knocked on the door to let us know of all the rules we’re breaking.  It’s not a 5 star resort back here, but it’s clean, comfortable and peaceful.  The rear of the cabin overlooks Lake Allatoona.

Unfortunately, we haven’t been outside much.  The weather has turned very cold, so staying inside is a much better experience.  Jodi has had the time and convenient location to see several of her customers and I’ve been busy getting things ready for the next trip down to Florida.  Part of that preparation included four new tires on the jeep.  I would have rather not spent that money, but we have been saving for auto related repairs in the budget.  So all is well.

We’re ready to find some warmer weather for a while.  But, I’m sure we’ll be complaining about the heat and humidity soon enough.  We’ve also dumped a few things from our load that we found we didn’t need with us.  I made the trip to our storage unit that is nearby today to put those items on standby for now.  Maybe we’ll need them later.  If not they’ll probably be donated at some point in the future.
