Marguerite had a full day planned and fortunately it was sunny and quite warm. We began with a visit to her daughter’s beautiful home on a pond out in the country. They are traveling in Italy so we missed meeting them.
Then on to Sautee Nacoochee to visit a friend of Marguerite who operates a B&B. From there to the Pottery Museum of North Georgia and its associated craft/art gallery.This place is a marvelous museum in a superb award-winning building connected to a renovated former grade school with one of the best craft galleries we’ve seen. High quality creations all from within a 50-mile radius at very reasonable prices. Carol was 'in heaven' and bought a few items for herself and some gifts.
Then a visit to two winery tasting rooms and a purchase of some fairly decent Merlot and Traminette
Then it was time for supper at a buffet in the restaurant in Unicoi State Park with some delicious trout, a house specialty. This restaurant and lodge at Unicoi is 100% state owned and operated and a superb facility offering extensive lodging and outdoor trails and activities.
Laundry at Marguerite’s finished the day. Shopping scheduled for tomorrow to restock the larder.
