Okay, so the world has really gone crazy. Lately when I’m in Toccoa, I find myself asking Anne if we can take her boat out on the lake. A group of us will gather up dinner in a picnic basket and head out in search of a small cove where we can stop and enjoy the sunset.

Out here you feel like you are worlds away from the stress and fast-paced life of the city. And the best part is the food is wonderful and the views are free! When you return, you always feel as though you have been on a short vacation.

There’s just sky and wind and conversation with friends.

And the occasional boat speeding by. I love this!
