Day 63 - Belle

Not getting out today and don't think I've posted a real photo of Belle. She would have looked better standing with a side angle, but the only way I could get her to be still was to sit. She's really starting to show gray around her muzzle. She's really a sweet dog but definitely has ADHD and is still needy - she was Chuck's dog and I guess she still misses him!

Day 62 - Huge rocks

You really can't tell how huge these rocks are - lots bigger than a car, and the one on the left is right at the edge (overlooking) the narrow, crooked road up Georgia Mountain. This is in the "spiffy" new subdivision with the great views. As I said previously, they've cut all the decent size trees, lots of 'dirt' has run down onto the road in heavy rains. So, what's to keep these huge rocks from becoming displaced with no growth to keep the dirt from washing away??? Kinda scary!

Day 61 - Legacy Pointe

Legacy Pointe is the second 'spiffy' subdivision on Georgia Mountain. This is the one with the wonderful views and there are actually two houses being built in it (none so far in the other one).

I'm not excited about this one as they've cleared almost all of the trees and made at least two drive entrances off the winding road up the mountain - dangerous!

But then, I'm getting so old I hate change - especially around me.

Day 60 - Back of sign

Thought this was interesting - it's a church sign that I drove by. Didn't actually see the front of the sign but happened to look back and saw the flower behind the sign.

Day 59 - View from my mountain

Well technically it isn't "my" mountain - but I live on it and my great-great-grandfather brought the folks who settled it - so I've always felt like it was mine.

That is one of the gorgeous views - not from my house. When my great-great-grandfather came here after the civil war, the location he choose for his home was not a view (though the lake wasn't there then anyway), but a location he considered safer.

There's a new subdivision being developed :( and I drove into it to get this photo.

Day 58 - Yellow house

I love yellow - but this is a "jump out and grab you" yellow - AND, the house is for rent :)

Day 57 - Playhouse???

I originally thought this was a playhouse - it's kinda over in a side yard of a house... but the more I look at it - I'm wondering if it's not a high deck to sit on and see the water. There's a regular lawn chair on the first deck.

It looks a bit precarious so not sure I'd want to sit on either - not real level me thinks!
