This year we are in Atlanta, Georgia. We have never been to Georgia before so Tom and I flew in yesterday (Saturday). My conference obligations don't start until Wednesday.

She opted out as she was having some trouble with her back and she did not want to be sore and miss out on the zip line tomorrow. The proprietors of Chalet Nicholas set up the horseback riding tour for us. We were given directions to drive about 10 minutes down the road to a stable which we did. When we arrived, it was a true working … [Read more...]
