You can’t go wrong with Georgia. We’ve got mountains, rivers, lakes, swamps, ocean, islands, farmlands, big city, medium cities, small towns, shopping, sports, entertainment, my pottery and just about everything else you could want from a travel destination. Thanks!



These are not surprising my anymore, but thanks..
