We were up in Clayton GA for Wednesday night (would have gone sooner, however, Angela had band/color guard practice this week - darn it!) We left right after work and headed up...
The drive in - starting on paved road...
Next to the VERY full and fast stream.
Favorite road sign on the way into the house!
The driveway up..
So the first night we relaxed and played some pool and ping pong.
Karen and Chris playing darts
relaxing on the screened porch
Thursday morning the girls and I struck out on our own to go horse riding. No one else was interested, but pointed us to a wonderful place to ride that offered "river" rides.
Liz had Bailey, Angela was on Sadie and I was on Rex.
LOOK I got them to turn around and smile for me!!!
toes getting wet on this section - it got fairly deep .. but felt so good!!
Blue heron just to the left of center
This is how Rex rode the whole time... nose in Sadie's bum - hahahaha.. poor Sadie. Good thing she didn't seem to mind and it kept her motivated to keep on going!
Bailey had some serious "go to hell" looks on this ride, he would all of a sudden turn around and GLARE at Sadie. you can tell she's is soo concerned about this, eh? Ha!
LOOK - proof I was THERE!!!!
We then headed up to Highland - where mom and I went when we went to see the leaves last year.
We walked around the cute downtown then headed home... we got side traced at an alpine slide for another half hour or so!
Friday was the planned day for white water rafting... We'll let the pictures speak for themselves
The crew: Joe, Chris, Nate, Kathy, Matt, Clyde, Leah, Liz, Angela, Meagan, Donna, Jennifer
The only one missing was Karen :(
This was a GREAT trip!!!
Saturday a few went Zip Lining. I was too large to go ;( Angela was too scared to go all the way through with it :( next year we'll both do it!!!
Only ONE war wound and it was from horseback riding and LIZ earned it!
What I woke up to every morning at 7:00am... yes, that is SUN streaming in and NO blinds on any of the windows there... weird. Only the bathroom upstairs had a curtain.
On the way out of town we had to stop at Goats on a Bridge... it was right beside where we would turn around on the highway to get to our road... so we had to go and look.. no, really - goats on the roofs...
and on the bridges between the roofs...
and this is what is UNDER those bridges...
and where the girls ar... hahahaha
no, really they are off to one side..
We did make sure we stayed out from under those walkways!!! EWH!!
And with that it's back to reality.. :(
