Richard, a nature center like this one makes for a very nice excursion for a morning or an afternoon on a pleasant day. Looks very relaxing.

You have a way with words and pictures.  This makes me think 'road trip'.

Richard,

When the pressures of the day start to pile up this sounds like the place to head for an hour or two.

I agree with Mel.

Anthony...

Thanks... it's one of our favorite places! Thank you.

Gary...

It is, and it is under-appreciated in our community. However, light crowds make for great photo opportunities. Thanks.

Mel...

Thanks! I had to search through the archives for these ... and then I thought ... why didn't I just ride by there after work??? Crazy.

How right you are ,,, when I worked in Downtown Atlanta I would head to the Atlanta Botanical Garden, but in Coweta County, this is the place to go! Thanks, as always for the comment.
