A Surprise Venture Into Another State

Venturing into North Carolina for some ice cream.

My grandmother's friend had offered to tour us around the mountains in Georgia the day before we were to drive back home.  As you can see from before, we went to Georgia's highest point, Tallulah Falls, and ate at the Dillard House.  This was an all day event, since we started in Winder, Georgia (which is outside of Atlanta).  While we were eating at the Dillard House (which was gross, by the way), our "tour guide" mentioned that our next stop was to get some ice cream.  I was a little confused since we were finishing off a big meal that included dessert, but she said that the main reason for her wanting to go there was not only for ice cream, but to buy some of the butter that they make.  Ok, no big deal.  But then she says that it's in North Carolina.

  At first I was thinking, "What?!  Why would we go all the way there for some butter?"  However, I didn't realize that North Carolina was a mere 5 miles down the road.  Once again, I had no idea we had driven that far.  I was a little shocked, but willing to go.

The ice cream place was about half a mile or so from the border.  No one really wanted any ice cream since we had just eaten, but it was nice to get out of the car.  There was a little river or creek right next to us, which was pretty.  And then there was the wooden bear inside the place that you can see from the picture.  I don't know why it was there, but I felt the need to take pictures.
