Big Canoe, North Georgia

Someone asked about Big Canoe in a comment — Big Canoe is a resort type community in the North Georgia mountains, just an hour from where we lived in Marietta. The move to Minneapolis with Keith’s company 3+ years ago had been completely unexpected and we had bought this condo just a year before.

While we’ve had it for sale, the market for vacation homes these days hasn’t been good so Chris keeps an eye on it for us and we visited last summer and again this year. When I’m here I think we should come more often but there always seem to be so many other places to visit.

A walk to the end of the street gave me an opportunity to snap a couple photos of one of my favorite spots.
