Back from Vacation & I have Pictures!

We went on our annual Helen, Ga trip this weekend, but we went down a day earlier than the big bike group so we could check out more of the area sites. Boy are we glad that we did!

We stopped by a few Antique Shops. This one was in Helen & the shop & gardens were just lovely!

One was named "Good K-9 Antiques" & you know I had to go in there! LOL!

We stopped by the Indian Mound Memorial...

...Hunted up a Bike Repair Shop, to help out one of our fellow riders. We lucked onto a shop named "Rooster's" & got to meet this cute little girl...

...Stopped by a Kewl Place called "Goats on the Roof" and I could have stayed there all afternoon! The Goats really have people trained there. Folks buy food & then peddle a bicycle or crank a wheel to deliver the treat cups up to the eagerly waiting Goats! They have all sorts of aerial walkways & bridges to get them from one treat location to another. I knew my Friend & Goat Lover, Jen & her Daughter Riley would get a kick out of this place!


They even had a "Reserved Parking Spot" saved for my Dear Hubs!

As we were leaving, I found this Cute Little Feller relaxing by a shady bush...

Then it was back to town...

For dinner & drinks with our friends...

...and night time Carriage Rides through town...

On our way home, we stopped off in Cherokee for some quick shopping, where I snapped this colorful guy standing on a corner.


Our trip was a short weekend jaunt, but when we went to pick the boys up from the Doggie B&B, you would have thought we had been gone for Months!

It's fun to get away, but there is still "No Place Like Home!" :)
