The Big Rock



That's the name the locals in Metro Atlanta have given to Stone Mountain, which, by the way, is the largest exposed piece of granite in the world.




Today we pulled our boat over there to fish. It was fun! We actually caught fish, in fact, we RAN OUT OF BAIT! That's not fun when the fish are really biting. The weather was nice, not real hot, don't misunderstand me, it was very warm, but without the humidity we usually experience here in Georgia.


Here are a few photos with our view from the boat. If you look close you might see the carving on the side of the mountain of the Confederate Generals and the cable car approaching the top of the mountain. The photo to the right are young Canadian geese. They were beautiful.
This is the greatest part of retirement. We make our own schedule and some of it is really fun.

We love "The Big Rock" and I've been there many times. My little one can't stand fireworks, so we haven't been the laser show in a few years. But, I've never taken a boat out on the lake, sounds like fun.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Blessings,
