Blue Ridge, Georgia – a Cabin Vacation

My husband had been working so hard and he needed a break. Also it was my birthday last week; hubby suggested that we should get away for a week. He wanted me to pick the type of holiday and location…decision, decision…since I have Georgia on my mind (lol, I couldn’t resist) I settled on a cabin retreat somewhere in Blue Ridge, Georgia.

Approximately 720 miles from our Florida home, we drove and headed towards the mountain.
Our first ever cabin vacation.
It might be sunny, I was actually cold. The temperature dropped down to 37ºf (3ºc) at night for a couple of days. But it was fun to light up a fire with real wood!

You can't see it from the above pictures, but there were these pretty little flowers all over the place, growing wild.We tried out the southern food like fried green tomatoes, fried chicken livers, cream corns, and banana pudding. Local people were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. My hubby did his best to spoil me and Poppy...this was a great get away and a lovely birthday present.
