East Cobb Park

Marietta, Ga

This is an overdue post. This was taken back in December timeframe. Totally forgot about it. The park was very nice. Georgia has SO many places to visit and things to do and eat!

This area is over the bridge on the right. There were people splashing in the water. There is also a table nearby.
The bridge at the far end of the playground.
The playground was big enough for a lot of kids to play. There are two separate playgrounds. The smaller one is geared towards kids 2-5 and that is over the hill past the parking lot.
This is the smaller playground for the young ones.
There were some holiday decorations such as this tree. I’m sure it looks pretty at nighttime.

This park is pretty awesome. There are trails everywhere, not sure how long they are but I’m sure you can get a decent workout.

Shaded area with wheelchair friendly ramp.

Seabrook Island, SC

The last few months have just been so blahhhh. Everything just feels like it’s in a time loop. I decided to take the kiddo to my parents for a bit to lighten up the mood. SC is a great place to be! If you haven’t been, check it out! We were specifically at Seabrook Island. It’s private but you can get a day pass.

Their food is great especially the sweet potato fries. It’s a bit expensive but that’s to be expected.

My grumpy two year old lol. We woke up early to see the dolphins feed.
We saw quite a few dolphins! My fav time of the day 🥰 Mommy and baby swimming.
This sunset was just MAGNIFICENT! I felt like I was in a dream.
We had the whole beach to ourselves.
It was a bit chilly but it felt warm under the sun. I love the beach.
My poor baby had a terrible stomach virus and gave it to me and so that was terribly exciting 🤪
Another beautiful sunset.

Myrtle Hill Cemetery

Rome, Ga

This beautiful cemetery sits atop Myrtle Hill at the confluence of the Etowah, Oostanaula and Coosa rivers.

“Unimpeded view of downtown Rome, Georgia, to the northeast, the Etowah Valley to the east, and the Appalachian foothills to the south, the cemetery boasts spectacular vistas and historic significance which combine to make it one of the most unique in the world.” Standing on the top terrace was really spectacular, just overlooking the town.
These steps were quite steep, and there were some lose stones, so be very careful!
My favorite adventure buddy♥️
Stairs leading to the top terrace.
It was a bit nerve wrecking to walk alongside the hills but it was worth it! Just stick near the walls if you’re afraid of heights 😆
This was the second terrace looking down.
Near the top view.

Notes from the park

-Parking is in front of the mausoleum

-No public restrooms

-Steep steps, wear sneakers if you’ll be climbing up instead of driving

-You can also drive inside and park

-PLENTY of restaurants nearby afterwards!

Seabrook/Kiawah Island

South Carolina

I can’t get enough of sunsets. They’re just beautiful and reminds me how lucky I am to be alive.

My girlfriends and I decided to take a mom and babies only trip here to SC, and boy oh boy it has been a trip!! Everything else is fine except we caught a stomach virus according to the doctors. We’re still dealing with it a little bit but it has definitely put a damper on our little getaway. Nonetheless it was good to have a different scenery.

This is an island I visit pretty frequently throughout the year.

When I was little I used to think these sea foams were clouds that fell from the sky.
If you’re ever in this area make sure to visit the Angel Oak Tree! It’s a magnificent 400 year old tree that is larger than life.
The beach at Seabrook Island during the day. This beach is private, thus you’d never have to worry about the crowd.
It rained off and on throughout the week. This here is the Bohicket Marina, great eateries and view of the sunrise and sunset.
More beaches down the road from Seabrook Island. This was from Kiawah Island, island next door.
We ended the trip with dolphin sightings!! We got there just in time to see them feed.

Berry College

Mt. Berry, Ga

It has been a very gray and dreary week so I decided to take my family on a short road trip to see the Berry College campus. Let me tell you, it was a beautiful campus! Very LARGE, in fact, it’s the world’s largest college campus.

It was very cold and breezy but we persevered. Since our toddler wasn’t feeling the weather we only stayed a little over an hour. We didn’t get to see half of the campus since it was so big.

We decided to just walk around these beautiful buildings.
I can just imagine how beautiful it would be in the warmer months with all the foliage and flowers blooming fully. I wish I had known about it sooner.

We had the whole place to ourselves which was nice. Obviously the inside of the buildings were closed to the public but there are scheduled tours available.

Such a cute spot for the students to hang out. I love this college. I would have loved to have gone here.
One of the things about this campus is their many large fields. There were lots of deer in groups such as this. There were also disc golf throughout the campus and lots of obstacle courses. Such a fun college! 🤩
The Old Mill. This mill was constructed in 1930. It’s considered one of the largest in the world. From the main campus this mill was about a 10 minutes drive.

Notes From The Park

-Easy drive, take second entrance into the main campus.

-No public restrooms available during this time. Campus has closed to the public during the spring semester.

-Plenty of parking.

-Wear comfortable shoes. You’ll be doing a lot of walking.

-Tours available
