We spent the day yesterday with friends visiting several spots we've never known about.
One was a clock shop in Cleveland, GA.....the owner is one of about 4 or 5 authorized repair persons of cuckoo clocks here in the US. Interestingly, our friends learned about him during a trip to Germany! I should have taken photos of all his treasures.....but neglected to...sigh....
We noticed many, many outdoor seating areas....beer gardens etc.
Of course a large decorated Christmas tree was already on display.
And....lookie here.....a quilt shop!Next we visited Huge's Sorghum Farm in Young Harris, GA. You can see all the stalks piled in the background. AND.....our infamous dog Sooty in the foreground.....who had an emergency visit to the vet on Thurs. We hope antibiotics will take care of her problem.....but personally, I still worried that all the faux felted wool 'rocks' she ate recently is at the root of her issues!!! This is getting to be one expensive dog!
There's a self-service shop one can stop by to pickup this tasty syrup...the owner was available and provided lots of info about his product.
He's got quite the operation going on.....all these buildings are used during the syrup making process.
Traveling with dogs means lots of pit stops.....this overlook explains how folks can come to love this whole entire mountain region......lovely......
