We spent most of the weekend putting up Christmas decorations and lights. The newly planted fir trees on the hill behind the cottage were also decorated with garland. They were beautiful last night in the moonlight. Cocoa loves the sun room. She watches the birds that land just outside the windows and also keeps an [...]
These are probably the last photos I'll post of the leaves at Toccoa Falls mainly because they are gone. Guess it is time to turn another page in life's journal and begin to look for Christmas scenes to post. The mountains are especially deep and lovely this time of the year. As I drive around [...]

The weekends in November are called "release weekends" because the core of engineers release more water through the gorge—so much water that it actually looks much like it did before the dam was built. Kayakers sign up early for permits [...]
I rode down to the falls yesterday morning, and from a distance I could see the mist bellowing out of the gorge as the water hit the rocks at its base. Though it was still drizzling, I walked the pathway to see the sight that never fails to move me. I always imagine Evelyn and [...]
What a rainy, rainy day we had today in northeast Georgia.
