More Adventures with Daisy 2007-08 travel blog


Today I had a very short drive from Albany to Americus, Georgia -- only about 35 miles. For at least the next two nights I will be staying at the Brickyard Plantation Golf Club and RV Park. It is a Passport America park and is quite nice. It sits back from the highway, so it is very quiet. There are two catch-and-release fishing ponds.

If I were a golfer, I would be excited because they can play the 27-hole course all day for only $5. The pro shop is housed in a former mule barn and bricks are used as tee markers. The course is divided into three nine-hole sections, the Ditches and Waters, the Mounds and the original course.

On the way to the park I stopped at Wal-Mart. It is one of few places to shop right now because, back in March, many businesses and the hospital were destroyed or very heavily damaged by a tornado. Not all of them have been rebuilt yet. I found a camera case that works well for my Olympus camera and has room for its accessories. It was on sale for only $11 so I couldn't really lose on that deal.

There are quite a few attractions within a short distance from the park, so I'm planning to check them out. I may have to extend my stay if I visit them all.
