Sunday is beautiful, temps will be in low 70s here in Helen, but watch out for the rest of the week, if you come to Helen, bring your jackets! We will be in low 40s and 30s on Mon, Tues, and Weds, IF the weather wizards know what they are talking about for our area! What does this mean besides bring your jackets? It means you can enjoy the fireplace in the cabin you have rented for the weekend, curl up in a thick throw, read a book or just watch the leaves fall from inside! When you are forced out for food :-} you can enjoy any of the many wonderful dining experiences Helen has to offer. Or head on over to Clarkesville which is a change of pace. Don't forget the Batesville area, and you can still go on up to Lake Burton if you like the Lake area. Helen is not only a destination, it is a good home base for so many day trips. If you have never taken the drive on Hwy 197, past Mark of the Potter in the fall, you have missed an exquisite feel of being in England's Lake Country region!! The first time I saw this I remarked this must be what Heaven would look like and I still hold that opinion! It is a Must See, and the stop at Watt's Mill (Mark of the Potter) is one you will never regret. Besides all the wonderful hand thrown pottery, you can walk out on the back deck, look down into the Soque River (at its best) and see hundreds of Trout. NO, you can't throw out a line, even at midnight. There are cameras there to record your every move! Once I actually saw a deer crossing at the top of the cascading water falls, such a site will probably never come to me again, but once was wonderful and I shall never forget it. Whenever I am showing Buyers who are lucky enough to be able to move to our area this wonderful landmark, I always tell them my true story. Also, if you go to my site www.FlynnTaylor.com and watch my home page slide show, you will see a very odd looking fish/trout there. I took that photo and it was of an "albino trout" as documented by DNR, which took advantage of the wonderful feeding ground at Mark of the Potter. You can buy fish food to throw into the water. Take your camera, you don't want to miss this spot of this week in living color!
