Now that I've come a few metres further, I can see that this pub isn't a one-off... ... it's starting to look like the whole town has an Alpine style. A Christmas shop. Helen. Helen. This place is amazing. I wonder if literally the entire town is like this, or if I will pass a retail park of standard boxy... Helen. Helen. The river, near where I stopped for an ice cream. Look! The retail park matches the rest of the town! The Holiday Inn is in the Alpine style too. A supermarket. Statues in a car park. Monday might not be so sunny. A petrol station. Sorry.

Tonight's hotel has a... My hotel is within earshot of trains again. Toccoa. The car park under the police station includes this old classic. Every pelicon crossing that I have seen until now has used a red hand and a white walking man. This ... This looks like it must have been a cinema once. Toccoa. An accountant's office. Toccoa.

This is the first sign I've seen which tries to show where the falls are and I'm not happy with it. It's been quite common for lamps to have a little knob which rotates to give you one, the other, bot... The Moon is waning again but this time it won't give an eclipse. Strange place for a sit down.
