Beautiful sculptures around every bend.
Shopping center near the hotel.
We had a rental car so we were able to head out to Stone mountain for a visit. It is the largest bas relief carving in the world, even bigger than Mt. Rushmore. The Confederate Memorial Carving depicts three Confederate leaders of the Civil War, President Jefferson Davis and Generals Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. As well it includes their favorite horse, Blackjack, Traveller and Little Sorrel. The entire carving covers about three acres. It was quite impressive.
We also went to visit Margaret Mitchell's apartment and to the Botanical Gardens. The gardens were stunning so I will share pictures of them in another post.
Needless to say, a lot of sewing did not happen. I did finish off the hand stitching on my Raggedy block for this month. I am not ready for block #4.
We returned on Thursday evening and had out of town company for the weekend so there was not much time to catch up on blogging.
Our niece was married on Saturday and we all enjoyed celebrating with them as they start their new life together. They are such a cute couple.
Yesterday we had a big family brunch here for all the kids, grandkids and friends and I was too busy to take pictures. You will just have to imagine what it looked like to have 35+ people here - inside - on a rainy day. Needless to say....today is cleaning, changing beds and trying to catch up on the laundry after being away for a week.
