A Church in the Wildwood!

A couple of weeks ago, we found Mt. Olivet Methodist Church in Banks County. As I chase down these old rural churches, I'm rediscovering my love for "all things" history.

Indian Island in the center of the backwaters of Lake Hartwell is almost underwater. We paddled out to it recently and just sat and talked about all that has happened over the past year. This time last June, I was clueless about having cancer. The discovery and the operation hit just after July 4! Then [...]
