Car Show in the Mountains

Leave a comment

As you can probably tell by the name of my blog, I love the beach. In fact, I totally agree with the words in Jimmy Buffett’s song “One Particular Harbor” that says, “I don’t get there often enough, but God knows I surely try.”

However this past weekend my husband, Jimmy and I headed north instead to the “Georgia Mountain Moonshine Classic Car Show” just a few miles from the charming little Alpine City of Helen, GA.  He is the car lover in the family and I went along to enjoy the beauty of the mountains.  Although car shows are not my first choice of places to spend a weekend, it’s always fun to see what kind of amazing creativity, love and hard work people have put into their old cars.

In spite of the name of the car show I didn’t see a drop of moonshine although it was rumored to be there.  There were hundreds of gorgeous automobiles on site, though.  There was a cartoon of a little  hillbilly on the show logo but it wasn’t made up of the kind of people depicted on some of the TV shows about the south, Georgia in particular.

I do love my home state but nope, I’m not a redneck, far from it and I will be the first to tell you that the stork apparently dropped me off a little too far from the coast.  Anyway we had a fun trip and I enjoyed being out in nature and near the water even if it wasn’t the Caribbean.  I shot a lot of photos, too so I’ll share a few with you here.
