A Favorite for a Lifetime: St. Simons Island

In a way, St. Simons Island is somewhat of a second home. I lived in Savannah for two years before going to Toccoa Falls College. I always find a way to come back to the coast every year. I just can't go too long without visiting this really special island. We always used it as [...]

The Lighthouse at Sapelo Island

Visiting the Sapelo Lighthouse is always such a treat! I love the barrier islands of Georgia and want to return often. It is true that once you visit the coast of Georgia, you never get the sand out of your shoes. Sapelo is the fourth largest island right behind Cumberland, St. Simons, and Ossabaw. Years [...]

We finally found Riley Moore Falls

I think sometimes my friends don't know what to do with me. I talked them into what I thought would be a sweet, gentle walk in the woods but it turned into a major hike that led down to nice waterfall on the Chague River in South Carolina. After walking along a flat woody trail [...]

Brasstown Falls

I visited a really cool area this past weekend and ended up doing some extreme hiking. (As extreme as I possibly can do!) The trail to Brasstown Cascades in South Carolina starts off easy enough, but by the time you pass the first set of falls, it turns difficult. You begin to have to pick [...]

Brilliant Sunset

We feel like it's spring and the sunsets are certainly becoming more dramatic! They do that in northeast Georgia this time of the year. The little hill in this photo is Currahee Mountain. It's funny how being at a distance changes our perspective. It's a couple of miles to the top of Currahee! During our [...]

Sunday at Glenn Falls

We don't have to go far to be in the middle of really cool surroundings. Yes, there are locations much more dramatic. I can find really cool places to spend weekend afternoons in nearby North Carolina but most of the time Toccoa and the surrounding area suits Cocoa Joy and me just fine. TFC alums [...]
