This was a beautiful fall weekend in Georgia. I had a successful garage sale on Saturday (netted over $600 between my daughter and me) and was able to drop off most of the items not sold at our neighborhood Goodwill Donation Center. GREAT!
During the sale, a neighbor stopped by to chat and mentioned that she and her siblings were selling a family lake home located on Lake Burton in northern Georgia. I once (many, many years ago) owned a lake house in Wisconsin and have never lost the love of lake property. It sounded wonderful! Since my husband and I had been talking about taking a Sunday "fall leaves" drive north, we decided to make this our destination.
The day was bright and sunny so we enjoyed the nice two-hour drive. The leaves are not yet at their optimum but beautiful never-the-less. The location of the property on Lake Burton is in Clarksville, Georgia.
Here is information about Lake Burton which, like almost all lakes in the State of Georgia, is man-made - website

|This restaurant was recommended as the BEST place for biscuits so we thought we'd stop for for lunch. We were sorry to hear that biscuits were no longer being served (just for breakfast) but we had a very nice lunch here anyway.|
|On "Scenic Highway 197", we stopped by the Mark of the Potter - a wonderful shop at a great water rapids location.|
