Fred Hamilton Garden, Hiawassee, GA













Fred Hamilton Gardens, Hiawassee, GA, This was a free gardens, we did make a donation while we were there just to be kind. Not many folks walking around the folks working there did say we should have been there the week before, 'cause that was when all the rhododendron were in full bloom. Is that not how it always is??! You never seem to be in an area when you need to be ... but there were a few blooms leftover. The hubby when planning our trips always looks to see if there are FREE gardens and other spots in an area just to check out while you are in that neck of the woods. WHY NOT? You never know what you might see!! So fun ...nice exercise. These gardens are so well taken care of ...gorgeous details ...so they have really gone the extra mile.

Sorry you missed the Rhodies in full bloom but you got some pretty shots of the ones still left. I like how the little building is painted that pretty shade of pink.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
