I extended my stay at Hilltop until Monday morning due to the widespread rain on Sunday. It was a wise decision because the hosts here at Eastbank Campground said the weather was very bad on Sunday. The tow was 180 miles of easy interstate driving. I got a very early start and was on the road by 8:30 as I was anxious to be moving. I've been staying in places way too long over the last month and that doesn't seem to fit my style. I'll be moving more frequently from now on. To reward myself for such an early start, I stopped at a Cracker Barrel around 10:00 to enjoy a nice "sit-down" breakfast. It was good.

lined with people fishing.

This campground is in the extreme southwestern corner of Georgia right on the FL/GA state line. The boundary between eastern and central time zone runs down the middle of the lake so technically I'm in the eastern time zone now. But my cell phone, which is my official time keeper, keeps bouncing back and forth from eastern to central time. I guess I am camped within the margin of error of the GPS location. It's a good thing I don't have anything to do on a tight time schedule or I would be early or late, depending on which time my phone said it was.
Besides the campground being along my eastern route, I thought there would be some good sunsets on the lake. Last night was a so-so sunset and my hopes are that tonight will be better. There wasn't anything special that I came here for except the campground looked nice on Google Earth. I will be moving on down the road Wednesday morning so tonight will be the last chance for a good sunset before I leave.
Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.
