Day 16

As mentioned yesterday, it is still a short distance to our last apartment in Atlanta. We cover 80 miles and have something extra to drive to Stone Mountain Park. This is about 12 miles east of Atlanta. Stone Mountain Park is a park around a huge high rock, in which the largest bas-relief artwork in the world has been carved. Completed in 1972, the work depicts three Confederacy leaders, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson. We all agree that it is very impressive. After some time we are back in the car and we drive to The World of Coca Cola at Centennial Park, in the heart of Atlanta. We park in the parking garage and buy tickets for this large-scale Coca Cola advertisement. When we were outside we still had an hour before we could go to the apartment, so we first do some shopping, that way Bernard can cook delicious food again, baked potatoes, green beans and a pork tenderloin, and then we go to the apartment. Bene and Margreet also buy a nice extra bag for the return trip ;-). The apartment comes with a assigned parking space, but due to a misunderstanding with the owner of the apartment, it is confused at first what is ours to use. However, this is also resolved and we move in for the last two nights.‚Äč After dinner Margreet initiates a stroll towards Centennial Park. Bene and Bernard accompanied her and we all three enjoyed it.
