Georgia Sketchbook by Cathy Carey
In late Spring of 2005 Brian and I went to Georgia, it was a chance for him to take a dedicated golf course at the Ritz Carleton, (WOW) and for me to take long hikes in pine forests and have fun taking pictures and making watercolors in my sketchbook. It was a really interesting trip for me also because my Dad is from Rome, Georgia, and all my life I heard about that part of the world, and this was the first time I experienced it.

A beautiful full moon rose on our last night there – we had rented a boat and taken it out on the water, it was magical. Even though we got lost, we eventually made it back by following another boat!

A family of ducklings was wandering around outside our window.

As the moon waxed during our stay I loved watching the moonlight on the water.

There were so many paths through the forest, I went on hikes that lasted hours and loved the smell of the pine trees and sunshine. Luckily it wasn’t too hot out or buggy!

Some rainy days – it cleared by afternoon, and it was lovely to hear the sound of the rain in the trees
