Patriots Park

Today we walked in Patriots Park, which seems like a good facility with gym and lots of outdoor sports including Frisbee Golf. Unfortunately no adult volleyball.

First visitor

We had our first visitor in the new house - Sparky - Cleo's best friend from Blakley Court. Sparky stayed with us for Thanksgiving and all three dogs had a great time.

New driver's licenses

Another milestone in our move, we got our new driver's licenses. Not too painful, although interestingly, we had to provide evidence of our citizenship. We celebrated with lunch at a Mexican restaurant; pretty good, but no Abuelos!

Savannah Rapids

We took the dogs for a walk down by the Savannah canal today, starting at the Savannah Rapids. You can walk all the way along the towpath from Evans to Locks Rd (near where we live) to downtown Augusta. We only made it as far as the old quarry - but we had a good walk.

New Job

I started my new job at Janus Research Goup. It's a small, privately-held company, located in Evans, GA, near Augusta. I'll be working on software for a new project for them. An old friend from Apple has been working for Janus for a couple of years and he looked me up a few months ago to see if I'd be interested in a job. As it turns out, the company is located near Mount Vintage where we bought a lot back in March. We already had decided that we liked the general area, and the job sounded good so we decided to make the move. I'll have to give up my dream of becoming a pro golfer, but life is full of trade-offs. The Senior Tour will be waiting for me someday.

Moving day

We moved house today. Of course it was pouring with rain most of the time that they were loading the truck in Calabash. It took so long that they have decided to stay in a hotel tonight and will be delivering tomorrow. That is good for us and the dogs. We are all exhausted, even though the dogs slept all the way down here. I guess it helped that it was dark the whole way. We will be happy to sleep on our air bed tonight and deal with the unpacking chaos tomorrow.
