Exploring Blue Ridge

While the guys went fly fishing, we girls went to town--- after taking turns in the quirky water-heated showers. "Town" was Blue Ridge, Georgia on the Toccoa River. We happened upon their little Christmas lighting festival on the the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We had a good time walking through the shops.

This giant topiary moose was a popular place for pictures.

I liked this bench, too.

This restaurant has an impressive entrance.

I was standing admiring these large ice sculptures when I met up with two of my former students with their family. What a surprise for us all! It turns out they have a vacation house in the area. 

There was another surprise: live reindeer pulling a sleigh (on wheels).

An old train would take you on a ride to a nearby town for additional shopping options.

It was a fun few hours.
