Georgia on my mind

wanderingfinns:

We did a short side trip to southern Georgia. The landscape was filled with pine forests, pecan trees and peanut farms. Our first stop was to visit the home town of the most famous peanut grower in the US, President Jimmy Carter. Plains is a small quiet town with several small Carter museums, peanut processing plant, and small main street with several antique stores.image

From Plains we traveled to Albany, the home town of Ray Charles. Our destination was the Ray Charles Plaza with a statue of the singer.

While at the park we could also hear his music being played through the speakers around the statue.

The nature stop in our Georgia trip was a visit in a pitcher plant bog. Our search for the meat eating plants was rewarded with only one barely blossoming flower. The best time of the year to visit the site is April when the large colorful plants are in full bloom.image

In late 1800’s Thomasville was a favorite winter resort town for the wealthy northerners. They escaped the winter to the fresh mild climate of South Georgia.  Yankees bought several of the local plantations, turning them into hunting lodges. They also build large mansions along the main street. image

Curious yellow Lapham-Patterson house was built in 1884 as a winter cottage. House is full of odd angles, floor to ceiling windows, 50 doors of different sizes, and a lot of other interesting asymmetrical details.

Another interesting tourist sight in the city is a large 330 years old oak tree. Height of the tree is 65’, circumference 25’, and the spread 165’image

Took a lovely tour down the Chattahoochee this morning. Rain made the water all but un-fishable. Was very peaceful and lovely.

After the Harvest — Pelham, GA

Photo of the freshly harvested fields located in a little area of Georgia named Pelham. Here is the final edit plus a little behind the scenes photo showing the thousands of little spectators I had to deal with while getting this shot.

“Herschel first called the new planet the Georgian Star, after King George III, and that name was used by the Nautical Almanac until as late as 1850. The name Uranus was proposed by Johann Bode when the planet was discovered, on the basis that Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus constituted a sequence of generations in mythology. It did not catch on with British astronomers until John Adams persuaded the Nautical Almanac to change, while British astrologers continued to call it by the name of its discoverer for many years.”
— The Naming of Uranus (x), in which there was this one time a planet was referred to as the Georgian Star
