Little Grand Canyon In Georgia

IMG_2477Providence State Park is located in Lumpkin Georgia, about 2 1/2 hours south of Atlanta. You basically go to Columbus Georgia and turn left. The view is breathtaking.  IMG_2444

It is a short hike down to the bottom of Canyons 1 and 2. Through 2 you can reach Canyons 3, 4 and 5. There’s some water running through the floor of the canyons, so, wear shoes you don’t mind getting clayy. IMG_2413

Then you look up and this is what you see. IMG_2418


Then you can go up the 3-mile White Blaze Trail, it takes about an hour and a half. It is a good hike, not too tough.  It is shady and there was  a nice breeze.IMG_2422

When you get to the top there are several overlook spots. IMG_2479

This is an awesome Staycation activity! You can go with family and/or friends. There are picnic tables if you pack up lunch.

Oh and there are really cool dragonflies!


Sherry’s Produce


Sherry’s Produce is a place I have mentioned before, this is a mural on one of its walls. They have a little bit of everything, veggies, plants, sauces. Their tomatoes are really very good! Oh and their boiled peanuts are GREAT!Image

It is located on Lawrenceville Highway in Tucker. Afterwards, I was in such a meat market… really across the street, there is a meat market. Image

This is the first time I have been here. It was very clean! I bought a steak and a couple of pieces of bacon. I haven’t cooked or eaten yet. Prices are good. The meat looks much better than Publix, and that’s where I shop. I will follow up with the cooked results. The bacon is for the lima beans I bought across the street. The people that work at both places are super nice! Check them out and let me know what you think. 

Sobban II

ImageOkay here’s the news on Sobban. You can see by the sign that it is Korean, Southern, Diner, I am throwing in Comfort Food. I ordered one of the day’s specials.Image

I ordered the spicy chicken sandwich and let me tell you, every single item on the plate was scrumptious! Everything, the bun the tomatoes, the pickles, the korean sweet potatoes. This man across the way ordered the Bologna Sandwich, it look really good.


I realize I need to go back and try more. I want to go back with a bunch of friends so we can try a little of everything! Extra bonus, service was outstanding.  (and the place is SUPER CLEAN!)

Please give it a try and let me know what you think. 

Centennial Olympic Park II

ImageCentennial Olympic Park. is a great place to take the kids! or go down by yourself! or take your significant other. ImageYou can have a picnic in the shade.Image


Or you can go to Legal Seafood. Our trick is sharing. I recommend the Clam Chowder, get a cup, it is delicious! We split the Fish and Chips, spicy, it wasn’t very spicy but it was really awesome. The fish was so fresh and fried perfectly.Image

The kids can play in the fountain, bring a towel! Image

When all is done, try SkyView. It truly is fun!Image

It is not scary (there is a “panic” button just in case) The views are great! Image

It really has grown into a great destination in Atlanta. Let me know what kind of fun you have in the park. 

Honey Moon (Friday the 13th)


This months full moon coincides with its perigee (when it’s closest to the earth during its orbit). So, it will appear super large on the horizon.Image

Pair that with the June summer solstice when the sun cuts its highest path in the sky, a smathering of atmospheric dust & pollution and the whole thing will give off an amber or “honey” hue.


So, hopefully the sky will be clear tonight and we will have a spectacular view! 

(Happy Birthday Ella! Love you so! Special day for a special person!)

Georgia Aquarium Fun Fun Fun!!!

ImageHello Beluga Whales. Aren’t they just so beyond words, peaceful, omnipresent, joyous! There is such a strong connection with these gentle mammals. 

When we first arrived we were informed the Dolphin Tales Show was about to start in 15 minutes. Image

We got in and found three seats up top in the middle. The show is pretty amazing. The dolphin are truly awesome. You have to see this it will give you chills. Admission to the show is included in your admission to the Aquarium. (Quick tip: Go to the kiosks outside to purchase your tickets. It is much quicker.)

Then we decided to go Ocean Voyager. Lucked out again, they were about to feed the whale sharks! ImageSo you are in an acrylic tunnel and these humongous sharks are all swimming above you, it is so cool! But, that wasn’t enough for us we wanted to go up top and see what goes on behind the scenes. You can do this too, there are two tours for this area. One is for 20 minutes and the other is for an hour. We opted for the 20 minutes, so worth it! Image

There is so much to see and do at the Aquarium. Take the kids go this summer. Have a blast and let me know what you think!

Oh, you can pet and touch a lot of creatures too! Image
