This was taken on the porch of the Mark of the Potter just outside of Clarkesville, Georgia. It is on highway 197 and is a beautiful drive, especially this time of the year. There’s no need to spend lots of money on gas driving countless miles when you can travel to northeast Georgia and visit places like this. Years ago, I was in the middle of making a life-changing decision. It was here that God showed me I needed to leave this part of the state and become a city-dweller once again. While I have never regretted making the change, there are times when I still miss this simpler side of life.

The art of trout fishing was something I really wanted to learn. During “trout season” the state stocks the streams regularly. This is the full pond at the base of the falls beside the Mark of the Potter. However, just in case you decide to visit the folks there, better leave your fishing gear at home. There’s a no fishing sign posted. . . . but we can certainly dream and take lots of photos!
