Hurricane Irma in Cuba

Here are some pictures of the storm surge in the street where I grew up back in Havana, courtesy of my cousin Titico.

Hurricane Irma Video

A couple of days ago I was able to upload a video of what transpired before during and after the storm. It was not an easy task given the limited access to internet we’ve had in the aftermath of Irma. I drove around until I found a decent Wi-Fi hot spot, and four hours later the video was uploaded.

Red Coconut RV Park

I conclude this episode by sharing our third road trip with Minitini, the trailer. For a more visual account check out the following video.

Georgia on My Mind – Macon and Stone Mountain

Today I am releasing the first detailed video of our recent solar eclipse road trip. During the first 3 days we visited two main sites in the state of Georgia. First we explored historic Macon, and then we spent some family time east of Atlanta, at Stone Mountain Park.

Macon, Georgia

This city was completely off our radar until we drove through it on our way to Atlanta last year. I didn’t realize how important and wealthy it was in past. We visited a palatial mansion from the 19th century called the Hay House, named after the first family who lived there. We also toured the Rose Hill Cemetery, which is the final resting place to over a thousand confederate soldiers, several prominent political figures, and the Allman Brothers. The cemetery is the largest and oldest in the city, and one of the most picturesque I’ve ever seen. We also visited the Ocmulgee National Monument, which consists of several ancient indian mounds, but the scorching heat and numerous insects greatly diminished our enjoyment of the site.

We decided to cool off at the Ocmulgee Brewpub. This trip was one of the few times that we didn’t get a chance to sample the typical local cuisine, but the brewpub made a pretty substantial burger, so we left satisfied.

As a conclusion I recommend at least one day in this charming antebellum city, however, not in the middle of August.

Stone Mountain Park

The other main attraction we visited in Georgia was Stone Mountain Park. We stayed at the campground, and while it was perhaps a bit pricey at $58 per night, we had a beautiful site by the lake. We spent some time with the family, particularly with my brother in law Pepe, who lives in the area. He even has an annual pass. Among the things we did, we saw the old covered bridge, the Grist Mill, the Quarry Exhibit, but our favorite was the Historic Square, which features a collection of old original Georgia buildings. We also visited the Stone Mountain Village and discovered a German brewpub called Village Corner, also the Stone Mountain Brewing Company. Check out the video below for more detailed information about our time in Georgia.
