Fall Break '08
Our first overnight stop
on our Fall Break trip was in Helen, GA. Helen is built to
resemble a German town and is very cute as you'll see from the
photos. Other than that, we don't really know a lot about the
town as it was pretty much closed up tight while we were there.
It was just beginning to open back up as we were leaving the next
morning at 10:00. So if you're stopping by, plan to spend the
day, because they close early and open late.
One of the things that
was in full swing that night was the carriage rides. This is
the one that we took a ride around town in.
thing going on that night was October Fest. My husband
wanted to check that out. ;) It was definitely an
experience to hear the music and you can't see them in this photo,
but there's two people playing a song on those long horns like in
the Ricolo commercials. Now you're not going to see that
This is a working
The city's park
I think this is part of what they
call The Square.
In this photo you can
really see the German decorations on the buildings.
