So much for my great plans. I was driving the boys back from Florida today, and had hoped to stopped at Andalusia, Flannery O'Connor's Milledgeville farm. I hadn't been there is several years, and it seemed meant to be because tomorrow (8/3) is the anniversary of her death. It's good I checked though, and saw that they are closed on Wednesdays (only open Thursday-Sunday). So, what to do? We had a couple of hours before we were to pick up my daughter at the ATL airport and head back to BHM, so I spun the dial and we ended up at the Ocmulgee National Monument - @ocmulgeenps -outside of #Macon - many things happened there, but of most interest are the various Native American settlements which produced some notable mounds.
Not quite Tikal - and it was interesting to talk about the differences in these cultures and what they left behind - but still instructive.
As per usual with the @nationalparkservice, a great little museum, super helpful-docents and a lovely site. One of the best things about America, the #NPS!
