Last summer we traveled every month. In June we went to Savannah for Marvin's high school reunion. July found us on the road to Arkansas and Oklahoma. The Steel Magnolia house in Louisiana was our August destination. And finally in September we were at one of our favorite places, Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Since we cannot travel this year, (well I guess we could but a lot of the fun has been taken out of traveling) I thought I would take imaginary trips.
My first destination would be Yorkshire, England. I would love to visit the small village of Tankersley where my ancestors hailed from long ago. When I see the mountains of Yorkshire, I think of how much it reminds me of North Georgia where many Tankersley's came to rest.
My second trip would be to Avoca, Ireland. One of my favorite British tv shows is Ballykissangel. The village of Avoca was the setting for this series and it would be fun to see it in person.
While I am over the pond, I would travel to Oxford, England. Again, because of my love the British detective shows, Endeavor, Morse and Lewis.
Now we will come back to America. I admit that I would love to return to Natchitoches, Louisiana. But I will plan my trip for December when it is not so hot and the Christmas Festival of Lights is in full swing.
I will end my trips with a day trip to New Albany, Mississippi where I will eat lunch at the Talahatchie Grill then walk over to Sugarees for some caramel cake. And lets be honest I went to New Albany for Sugarees. Of all the bakeries I have ever been to, Sugarees is number one in my book.
Oh , if I lived too close to Sugarees it would be my undoing. I would be signed up for Free Cake Friday for sure. Thanks to Sugarees Facebook page for this image. And yes this cake tastes as good as it looks.
Thanks to Wikipedia for the pictures from England and Ireland.
The best thing about arm chair travel is that it saves you money and calories.:)
