A Nice Sunday Afternoon Drive in the Country

Phil walks bravely on slippery rock.......kinda like marriage I guess....LOL

Inside the Nacoochee church.................................


Nacoochee church where we were invited when we moved here.........of course the ladies still sit on one side of the church ............women and children on the other.........that is so bizarre to me.
Oh, lookie here at the cute little siblings. Looks like they already were experiencing sibling rivalry............
the Stovall bridge


Back to the primitve house in Sautee...........I suppose that's the gentlemen's waiting bench.....have you heard that song "Waiting on a Woman?"
This is a pleasant surprise leaving the farm.....................the sign is a quote from Psalms, 'The Mountains will bring peace to the people"


the front porch railing.....see Phil, never ever would you have to paint this! LOL

The exposed beams, a real fixer, upper......

Now for the ladies waiting bench on the right or I guess it could be time out bench for unruly kids........

ok, I had to do a Jackie pose
and just ironically it appears, the mama cow picture, right below mine.........hehehehehe....ok, no comments on that one.

The rustic dining room.




Phil and I went for a Sunday afternoon ride yesterday and it was a beautiful day. This is our dream retirement house, a little on the primitive side though. Actually, this is open for the public, near the Sautee Nacoochee Valley in North Georgia. It has bare essentials on the inside. I could only imagine the curtains and the saltware crocks that would look wonderful in the "dining room". The beams were all open and actually the 2nd story was not usable yet. Then we just drove around to see the cows. There were 2 calves, a mother cow and 2 bulls. The bulls looked very mean, but the baby calves were cute and I did get to pet the baby calf. Then we went to the Old Stovall Bridge which has alot of graffitti in it actually and we took some pictures. There is a little waterful where the river runs under it. Phil was brave enough to walk over some slippery rocks out in the river but I decided not to risk landing on my butt so I hung out on the grassy side. After that we went to the Old Sautee Store and got a snack and some hot tea and then on to the Sautee Museum. We've lived here almost 8 years and haven't looked through it yet......very interesting place. On next, to look through the old cemetary behind the Nacoochee church. For some reason, Phil and I like to walk through old....really old cemetaries......and this was one, we haven't been through yet.
