Steve and I went to Stone Mountain on Saturday...

Stone Mountain is right on the other side of Atlanta, and neither one of us had ever been there! It was really a neat place and we had a blast! The mountain is made of granite and this carving of Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis was chiseled into the side of this mountain. It was beautiful!

We went on a riverboat ride and this is a beautiful covered bridge...

This was the golf club on the water....pretty

Peddle boats that you can rent and work your way round the lake. "Work" being the operative word here, so....we didn't do that. :)

Stevie Baby taking in the sites on the lake...

Ride the Ducks! We did this and it was a BLAST!! It is an amphibious vehicle that goes on land AND after you have toured all around and seen the sites of Stone Mountain on land...

You go down this hill, pretty fast and SPLASH into the lake...and see the sights on water!

Which was so much fun!! We had a GREAT guide, "Captain Bob" who was so personable and funny and just made the whole trip so enjoyable. I told Steve I just wanted to ride around all day with Captain Bob!
We also rode an old train, went to a 4D movie which was great, went to the museum to see how this mountain carving feat was accomplished! That was actually very interesting (and air conditioned). A chance to cool off...
Then we went over to wait for the laser show...quite a few people had the same idea...imagine that...

And then more people came in with their coolers and chairs and blankets to have picnics and watch the show.

The laser and fireworks show took place on the side of the mountain to music and was just amazing!! I loved it and it was 40 minutes long!

The end of a PERFECT day :)

Hope you have a GREAT week!!
Lou Cinda
P.S. The shrub votes are in and.....that baby is gonna be GONE GONE! Thanks for your votes and suggestions :)

  3. I've always wanted to go to Stone Mountain! Now I know that I will go for sure! Beautiful pictures!

  4. As in Gone With The Wind? I wish we had gone here when we were in Atlanta a couple of years ago! I just have to know...were there grasshoppers in attendance?

  5. That looks like so much fun!! I definitely need to take Marty and the kids here!!


    Robin :o)

  6. That looks like a fun day! Stone Mountain is pretty close to you? Isn't it funny how we sometimes overlook the things that are nearby? We do the same thing.

  7. First of all, you are SO pretty*!!! I love your pictures from your weekend. Looks like SO much FUN*!!! Thank you SO much for your sweet comments and prayers*! You have no idea how much it means to me*! I've had a fun weekend being back in Dallas and hanging out with friends. Hopefully things will continue to look up and I'll be having even MORE good times*!

  8. I've heard of Stone Mountain, but didn't realize the area was so beautiful and that there's so much to do. Glad you had a fun trip!

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comment. I always enjoy hearing from you!

  9. Stone Mt. is a great place to visit! I have never been there at night though and seen the laser show. Glad y'all had a fun time!

  10. Stone Mountain is a part of history that we (30 minutes from the Mountain) take for "granite"! We pass it everyday as if the beauty was not there.... It is such a special and magical place. As a child I grew up there camping every weekend and swimming in the "swimming hole" during the week! Wonderful Memories! I am so glad that you had a great time!

  11. that looks like a really great trip! i love the water~so peaceful.
    haven't seen you for a while...missed you...hope that all is well~

  12. What a neat place! I would love to visit there once~

  13. Oh my goodness, that boat/car ride looks like so much fun. I think I would have been a little scared though as it plunged into the water. Pretty pics!

  14. Hi again, LC,
    Glad you stopped by, and I appreciated the nice comment. I agree that the "mojito girl" needs her own blog ... she's an engaging writer (as are you).

    Let me know if you try the recipe!

    bye for now,

  15. Hello Pretty Lady*! I just popped over to say hello and see what you're up to. I also want to thank you for your visits and sweet comments. It always makes my day*! ((hugs)) _Ashley*

    Whew...I feel better about this post as there is NO greenery for those little critters to be hiding in a photo...just one big stone mountain! ;)
    Sounds like a very fun day!!! This place is on my list of places to visit so I'm so glad you gave us plenty of sights to take in!!!
    I pulled up your last post, saw your bushes around your patio and thought there still might be crickets there...forgive me for not leaving a comment sweetie!!!! I think I'm okay now!!!!
