Destinations

Fall is festival time in Georgia, and Hoschton, once again decorated with scarecrows, is welcoming guests this weekend. Since we are experiencing some unusual bouts with rain, I am not sure we'll head out this weekend, but the list of events over in Hoschton looks like fun. There are plenty of things to do in our area, including the corn maze at Jaemor Farms, the upcoming Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega, Oktoberfest in Helen, and the Apple Festival in Ellijay.

We're recently back from a trip to Myrtle Beach, SC. Hubby, Son, and I stayed at the Dunes Village Resort, which is a good place for families with children. This hotel is right on the beach, so we were entertained by beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the water, 30,000 square feet of indoor water park, and the usual attractions of a tourist saturated area.

Last weekend, we traveled a far shorter distance in the opposite direction, to Japanfest, in the Gwinnett Arena. There were many booths, martial arts and folk art presentations, and some interesting food choices. Green tea snowcones, anyone?

A couple of weeks' ago, we were on Peachtree Street, our destination being Atlanta's Shakespeare Tavern, for a play, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged. If you haven't heard of it, TCW is a comedy, performed by three actors, with some audience participation. The four of us laughed a lot, and the intimate nature of the Tavern makes it the perfect place to get involved. While we didn't get called up to the stage, we did get showered with silly string and artificial flowers, which is all part of the fun.
