The little cabin in the mountains........

Note: This segment was posted a couple of days ago out of sequence....so if you think you've read this.....you have!

After a little more than an hour driving and stopping for a bite of supper we arrived at the cabin.....when we are staying at the cabin we always fly 'Old Glory'......when the Queen is in residence at Buckingham Palace, the flag always flies....when Betty is in the cabin....the flag flies......




Marion on the footbridge over the little creek......
Eating supper on the deck................



Start your rockers..............
We rode down to Nacoochee Valley and to the 'Old Sautee Store' museum full of anything you can imagine......
Marion and John on the front porch...we all sampled 'Hank's Black Cherry Soda'....since our girls were small we've always gone to the store and had a bottle of bud wine bottled soda...now 'Hank's Black Cherry Soda' has taken its place.....
John has found the Crocs he's been searching for.....
Marion is adding to her collection of Crocs.......


No, we aren't in Bavaria......we are in Helen, Georgia...A beautiful little Swiss-looking town that was begun many years ago. One of Georgia's tourist attractions.......



A kind lady passing by offered to make our picture....so many nice, thoughtful people ........


The fountain in downtown Helen...............
Who is this dashing performer? Maybe another 'Indiana Jones?'
John is playing the 'player' piano in the Dahlonega General Store. We had lunch at the Ice Cream Shop.......yes, Marion found another pair of shoes.....actually that makes 3 pairs today, but who's counting......
Meanwhile, back at the cabin...Marion and John just 'a swingin'...

Now it's our turn.......I just realized I made no pictures in the cabin....maybe Marion did......if not, I'll post on the interior one day......

We leave the cabin on Wednesday morning and head south....the next stop will be a 'culinary delight to the palette as well as the eyes'..........to be continued.........

What a pretty cabin and fun outing! Helen is not very far from Greer, SC, where I live, and we've always meant to go. Sounds like a great summertime place to visit!
Thank you for the tour!

Oh Betty, it looks like you had such a great time with your visiting friends. We have a Swiss style town here in Michigan that remindes me of the one you posted about here.

We contine to keep Ronald in our prayers. He is very special to me for several reasons.

Hugs,
Sue

Betty,

The cabin looks like the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. I'm glad you had such a great time with your friends.

Blessings,
