When I retire….or sooner!

Hope everyone had a safe and memorable 4th of July.  Mr. Picky and I were lucky enough to visit some dear family in Ellijay, Georgia at the Coosawattee River Resort.  I fell absolutely in love with the property, and if I ever win the lottery, our second home will be there.

While Ellijay is “far” off the beaten path, this property has amazing amenities: pool, tennis, fishing, you name it, but what I found absolutely charming was “Pickin on the Porch” at The General Store of Ellijay.   This is the place wher you make arrangements to go tubing, eat a great meal, get groceries, buy lovely souvenirs make by local residents, but best of all is  photo (18) the regular outdoor music.

We were entertained by

It is a GREAT event for families; people brought chairs, picnic baskets, coolers, dogs 😉 etc.  How was your 4th of July?  Any particular special events you’d like to share?  Please comment below – I’d love to hear from you!
