Chippy always enjoys a trip to the lake and . . . good looking Cocoa is always watching me to see what is coming next. I love this dog!
Going down the Tugalo Corridor with Kelly Vickers has become a tradition. Each spring he takes a group of us down the Tugalo River and out into Lake Hartwell. Along the way we pass the site of the prehistoric Indian village of Estatoe that was inhabited by Creek Indians. Further down the river, we stop [...]
We're not going to see fish like these on Saturday morning! Instead we'll pass rainbow trout and other things as we kayak down the Tugalo Corridor with Kelly Vickers and others.
