Autumn has always been my favorite time of year. The cool, crisp days are a welcome relief from the very hot and humid days of summer. This year October has been the perfect time to return for our annual visit.
I grew up in this area...we lived in Manchester, GA (home of the FDR Little White House) until I was 9 years old before moving to LaGrange, GA.
If you blink while driving on Scenic Hometown Highway 27, you might just miss this jewel. Pine Mt. is small, only 2.8 square miles.
Main Street is filled with locally-owned shops and boutiques, cafes and an old-timey, hand-dipped ice cream parlor.
This quaint town began in 1882 when the railroad spread from Columbus. It was originally named Chipley and didn't become Pine Mountain until 1961.
This small southern town has emerged from its days as a farming community into a primary tourism location, greatly due to the efforts of President Franklin Roosevelt and Callaway Gardens.
Sunrise here is not like the desert, but still a great way to wake up and greet the day! We love watching the horses across the street. Its a beautiful property. There have been 2 outdoor weddings since we arrived...
Canadian geese have also been enjoying the lake there. This flock arrived bright and early this morning... ...quite noisily! Their "honking" call to "get up, get up!" was quite clear.
What a treat to see!
It sure makes Joe and I happy to play with our pups. Wrecks and Jack love to play catch. The weather has been so nice, we can go several times a day.
Wrecks keeps his eyes on the ball and rarely misses.
Of course a break in the shade is always nice!
Appointments for Joe and I are winding down. We have had great reports...WHEW! Glad that's all over! Only appointments left for us are to pick up our new glasses and I have a hair cut next week.
Joshua (3 years old) loves running, riding his bike, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. He is so happy...what a good dose of non-stop energy!
Alice can't drive yet, so I drove Alice and Raelyn for Raelyn's first doctor appointment. Daughter and granddaughter are doing great!
Have a great week-end!
Until next time, take care...
and enjoy the view!
