Weekend Getaway

Ken and I are on a little mini vacation in the mountains this weekend. We are excited to get some time alone to rest and relax. We started off our trip by tubing down the Chattahoochee River in Helen. We tubed with Cool River Tubing Co. and they were great. The water was very cold and the river was very low so we got stuck a lot and Ken had to work hard with the push pole to steer us and keep us moving along. It was overcast and threatening to storm but we made it out just in time. After tubing we enjoyed a picnic lunch from The Daily Deli. We had chicken salad croissants, orzo pasta salad, fresh fruit with strawberry pina colada dip, pimento cheese with pretzel thins, cheese straws, a cranberry pecan scone and lemon shortbread cookies. After lunch we headed to our cabin, Rabbit Hill, at Paradise Cabins & Spa for a nap. The first time I have had a nap in ages. Then we took a drive around the mountains through Young Harris and had the seafood buffet at Brasstown Valley Resort for dinner. After dinner, we went bowling at the bowling alley I used to go to in college. YHC had intramural bowling, I took bowling as one of my P.E. courses and the college would rent it out several times a year for "Rock and Bowl" nights. It was a fun trip down memory lane and I beat Ken! Looking forward to some more good food, good sights and good company tomorrow.
