9/18/15 - Acworth, GA

This morning we went to Cabela’s and asked them if we could spend Saturday night in their parking lot.  They said we could.  We will still ask if anyone has cancelled their reservation in the COE park on Saturday morning.  Jim drove us into Atlanta and we went to Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site.  This park includes a museum, King's boyhood home, and his tomb and eternal flame.  The home sits on a block with several shotgun houses that the National Park system has purchased.  We went into the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church where he was baptized and was a preacher.  His funeral was held here and his mother was shot and killed a few years later while playing the organ at a church service.   

Then we went through the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum.  After leaving it, we went to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.  We hiked a short trail that led to the river.  On the way back to camp, we stopped at Kroger for a few things.  Camp is really crowded tonight.  The campground is full and it has 150 camping sites.  All the sites around us have tent campers in them.  Lots of noisy people outside with lots of campfires, kids and dogs. After supper we went for a walk and then watched some TV.  Jim called his sister -- her dog died.
