A lot of R. G. LeTourneau structures, if not all of them, were constructed out of steel. He was a prolific inventor of earth moving machinery, who also built structures with metal. Every once in a while I like to have what I call "looking for LeTourneau Day." Those are the days that we take [...]
This is an easy hike to Oconee Station Falls (also called Station Cove Falls) near Walhalla, SC. It follows an old logging road and is probably a 20 minute walk to the falls. We took longer because we were walking Wessy, taking photos, and enjoying the spring flowers. This is a fun, heavily traveled 1.4 [...]
Westview Cemetery opened in October of 1884 and has nearly six-hundred acres of land. That's a lot of land on the west side of Atlanta. It was designed to be the premier cemetery in the Southeast. It is certainly one of the largest in the country. I like visiting here better than going to Oakland [...]
A couple of years ago after I had completed my chemo treatments and was “safely” on the other side in recovery, I was going over all I had gone through and all God had done for me. I remember thinking something like: Christ gave His life for me and I am healed regardless of whether [...]
What a beautiful spring day! I loved this hike and will go back in the next couple of weeks. The Appalachian Trail is waking up and looking so good. The hike up to Wildcat Mountain was super easy—just right for Wessy's intoduction to the AT. Along the way, she met several hikers heading north with [...]
We have often hiked to Hemlock Falls. But for the past several years, I have not walked this trail due to the severe storm damage caused by two strong hurricanes that blew through the area! From time-to-time, we actually do get very strong winds after a coastal storm. But this time, we found the trail [...]
Sometimes, you don't have to go far to find peace and beauty. Walking and hiking along a local area in Toccoa. Anne even found two daffodils to take home with her. Then there were were with Wessy, who was intent on looking for sticks and ducks and found beavers instead!
What a sunny day and a great time at Victoria Bryant State Park with Wessy. She's growing up fast and she loves to give kisses. She doesn't really care where she is when a "kiss attack" happens. Here I am (finally) outside in the sun with Chip and Wessy. They are doing so well together [...]
