... two bedroom cabin had all the amenities, idyllic setting and not another soul to be seen or heard. It even had TWO hottubs! Saturday we had a lazy morning and took off to the villages nearby. A couple of little craft shops and a wander around a homecraft festival was interrupted by a 5 minute rain shower, and we took off to sample the local vineyards 'produce', which was lovely (and free!). lunch ...
... people just had longevity in their genetics. Elizabeth lived through a time when slavery was rampant, then a civil war, the abolishment of slavery and it's aftermath, World War I, and women's suffrage, just to name a few historical events.

Well, almost to the start. We actually had to walk a mile the wrong way up Springer Mountain to reach ...
... a German-themed town. Too touristy for us but Betty's General Store is a must. Walk to the back for fresh soup and sandwiches.
Two active gold mines are situated in Dahlonega and a tour is a must. Learn to pan and make some of the entrance fee back in real gold. I even bought a gold pan - just in case the opportunity arises again. One never knows...
After 4 days we headed to the town of Blue Ridge but stopped ...
