Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Doll Mountain

Today we drove further north toward our rally in Hiawassee.  We found ourselves at another gorgeous COE park.  Doll Mountain campground is located in the North Georgia mountains on Carters Lake.  You will find camping, hiking, boating, fishing, hunting (bows) and a playground in this heavily wooded area.

       "Carter's Lake embraces a
         spectacular tract of foothills
         scenery in the Blue Ridge
         mountains of North Georgia.
         It covers 3,200 surface acres and
         has 62 miles of undeveloped

Our site backs up to the lake....well we are actually above the lake with a nice drop off down to the shoreline.  We have a very nice wooded deck in a cul-de-sac type setting with five other campsites.   With all the trees it makes for a very peaceful feeling.             

 We had a tiny glitch!! Always something huh??  Our little Shih Tzu, Nick has terrible allergies.  This morning before leaving McKinney he had a bad sneezing spell after sitting outside with us.  His nose started to bleed.  We called our former veterinarian in Lagrange but as luck would have it he was out of the office this week. So we called the veterinarian our son takes his doggie to in Auburn and talked with him.

He advised us what to do and thought he might have a slight infection in his nose...I guess like sinus infection.  We just happened to have some Clavamox that our former vet had prescribed and he said that would be perfect!!  So we have medicated our little buddy and hope that he is better with this medicine.  He is 11 years old and I do worry about him.

Tomorrow we will head to Hiawassee and our site at Riverbend Campground. 

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. This is one of our favorite campgrounds. We were there 3 weeks ago. And before that we were at Riverbend. Great campground with super nice owners. Enjoy!

  2. What a wonderful looking campsite love the pain, hope your little buddy is feeling better.

  3. Oh poor Nick. Don't you just feel helpless when you don't know how to help him. We feel that way with Bella.
    Do al the sites have a deck? That is just an amazing site.

  4. Truly a sweet location there.

    Here is hoping the meds work quickly.
