Thank you so much for all of your words of support while my son is away at boot camp. I really cherished reading them all. I'm finally feeling better and able to cope with him not being home for awhile. Last week was TOUGH! I am trying to stay busy while he is away, so we all went to a Fall festival this weekend.
Have you ever heard of Gold Rush Days? It's very well known if you live in GA. It is in the North GA mountains of Dahlonega. That is only about 40 minutes from our house. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine and comfortable temps.
Warning! Picture overload ahead!
This town is an old gold mining town. That's why it's named Gold Rush Days.
Here are some people panning for gold!
There were lots of booths with crafts for sale.
I thought this lavender was a good price.
Cute bird houses for sale.
Fall decorations for sale.
There was plenty to eat too!
Here is my son on his second helping of food! He ate a hot dog and then asked for some chicken fingers. I had a hot dog and fries and my husband had some BBQ.
The town is full of pretty old buildings too.
Here is a restaurant with gorgeous greenery hanging off the balcony.
And the old courthouse is now a museum.
Many people brought their dogs too. They were everywhere! We left ours at home though.
We found this pretty memorial garden in the town too.
Overall, it was a fun day to get out of the house and get some fresh air in the mountains.
What did you do this weekend?
Thanks for stopping by!
