We had a wonderful time. Caution: vacation pictures ahead. Read on at your own risk! We really didn't go very far afield, but we did go to the North Georgia mountains which are about a 45 minute drive from here. We left Wednesday after noon. We went out to lunch to kill time until we could check in , we thought, at 1:30. Unfortunately we arrived at the cabins only to find we had to wait to check in til 3 pm. We decided to drive around a bit and ended up in a little flea market. Not much to write home about, but it killed some time. We also found a covered bridge my dad told me about
. By the time we got checked into our cabin there really wasn't much we could go do in Helen. Most of the shops start to close down around 6 or so. Instead we went to an ice cream parlor. They serve Mayfield Ice cream and it was yummy. Yea, I come by my weight honestly.......Anyway. Thursday was our main gallivanting time. We set out to breakfast at this cute, cute cute restaurant called Hofer's restaurant in Helen Ga. Helen is a small town in White county Ga that is built to resemble a Bavarian Town in the Alps. Hofer's lives up to the image. It is a bakery/ restaurant. Everything in the restaurant is Shipped over from Germany. The waitresses all wear dresses with full skirts and a ruffled apron. Cute. I tried to get a picture of a gorgeous dough bowl on top of the china cabinet, but I couldn't get a good enough pic to do it justice. I was however enamored of the coffee pot with which they brought our coffee. Here it is
So today has been an out door gardening day. I have picked tomatoes, limas, my watermelon, pinto beans, navy beans, and a couple of peppers. Now I am going to sit and watch something and shell beans, and more beans, and more beans..... Fall is looking pretty good right now. So I have to go now. See ya round the block!
