Good Times in Georgia

Events Stuff Two weeks ago my dear husband and I were ready for our relaxing escape to the Sweetwater Getaway Cabin on Fightingtown Creek near Blue Ridge, Georgia. One evening back in February I found this cabin on the internet and I immediately knew this was the cabin for us!!
We arrived May 31st and everything was as I hoped. The cabin was well maintained, soooo cozy inside, lots of homey touches, and the porch was a hop, skip, and jump to the creek. Fightingtown Creek is fairly wide at Sweetwater Getaway Cabin and is lively with gentle rapids and a bit of quiet water. But I could still hear the sound of the stream even in our bedroom. My cousin Mary and her husband Mike drove from Charlotte, N.C. to spend a couple of days with us. We enjoyed the Blue Ridge Scenic Train Ride with them and checked out some local restaurants. During the week we visited Vogel's State Park , hiked on the Aska Trail System, made it up to Brasstown Bald , Georgia"s highest mountain at 4,784 ft. They say on a clear day a keen eye can spy the skyscrapers of Atlanta !! We returned to Unocoi State Park for their all you can eat trout dinner. Gene did flyfish several times on Fightingtown Creek but no luck catching anything. Fish or no fish this is still my kind of place to relax.
We did visit the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta before we fly out the evening of June 7th. This is the only aquarium in the U.S.A. that has whale sharks ( 4 of them) as well as the majestic manta ray. This aquarium is defintely one to visit more than once, that is if I can learn to deal with Atlanta's interstate system. Yes, I am truly a country girl more ways than one....
