Smoky gets in Your Eyes (Norcross, GA)


After five weeks in Atlanta, tomorrow we are heading for Cherokee, NC and the Great Smoky Mountains to do some leaf peeping.  At least, I hope the leaves have changed.

We just had two repairs on the truck.  One, we had the DPF catalytic filter changed to the tune of $2800.  Then we were stopped on I-85 because of traffic and promptly were rear ended.  Fortunately, the other guy’s insurance paid for that (and the damage wasn’t too bad).  Now we are ready to move on to the next adventure. 

We also spent time with Cheryl, Harris, Adam, Debra, Ethan, Isaac and the newest family member, Sophie (who just turned 4 months).  We had a great time seeing everyone.

We did, however,  do some touristy things while in Atlanta.   So here is my picture essay. 

First we drove to Warm Springs, GA, The Little White House for FDR. The Little White House is a state park approximately 80 miles south of Atlanta, It is the place FDR went to try to recover from Polio, and where he died in the third term as president.

Gibbs Gardens is 40 miles north of Atlanta on what was once the Gibbs farm.  They are now having a Water Lily Festival.

I saved the best Lily for Last.
