Georgia Mountain Eggfest 2012

After leaving Athens, Texas, Judy and I made our way to Hiawassee, Georgia for the Georgia Mountain Eggfest.  

Here's the morning view from our hotel balcony.  Nice huh...

We arrived on Wednesday and left for home Sunday morning, driving 600 miles to New Orleans with only two stops.  (It was all downhill). We wanted to say hi to Judy's sister, Joyce and husband, Allen, who had just returned from an Italian vacation.  We were all tired so we went on to our hotel and left them to get some sleep before having to return to work.

We spent a few hours putting together a video of the Georgia Mountain Eggfest.  Here's the link.

Judy put this video together of our boat ride on the lake.

I'll see what I can do about adding photos of our visit with friends, Richard and Charlotte in Lewisville, Arkansas and our tour of Elvis' home in Memphis.

I think it's safe to say that we could live in Hiawassee.  We may go again next year and spend more time looking around.

Athens Eggfest

Judy and I attended the second annual Athens Eggfest in Athens, Texas.  It was on Mother's Day. 

As expected, we saw a lot of old friends and met some new ones, not to mention eating a lot of really nice food that was cooked on the Big Green Eggs. 

It is hard to describe what an eggfest really is so I usually take a lot of photos, borrow photos from others and add some music to a video I post on YouTube for all the world to see.  Here's the link to this year's Athens Eggfest 2012 - The Movie.

We left Athens driving to Hiawassee, Georgia for the North Georgia Eggfest.  Since we had a few days to get there we stopped to visit friends, Richard and Charlotte, in Lewisville, Arkansas, then stopped in Memphis to visit Elvis (he wasn't home), then spent the night in Huntsville, Alabama before driving some serious mountain roads on into Hiawassee on Wednesday.  I should be posting something about that part of the trip later.

Enjoy the Athens Eggfest video...
