Cabin Fever

I spent Memorial Day weekend in the North Georgia mountains and it was SO NICE. Saturday, I hiked Blood Mountain with friends. Sunday and Monday I went to a small cabin by myself in Sautee Nacoochee. It’s the best decision I’ve made while social distancing and I’m currently trying to see if I can book a cabin for a few weekdays while I’m still able to work remotely. This place ruled so hard! Chill time: reading on the screened porch which made me feel like I was in the trees, soaking in the heart-shaped jacuzzi while marathoning Naked and Afraid XL, drinking wine spritzers by the fire. I read until my eyeballs hurt which I haven’t done in years. Felt great.

Total cheeseball here trying to capture the porch magic with a timer selfie. I wore jammies the entire time and ended up reading about 300 pages of Dust, the last of the Silo trilogy. Love it.
Grilled and did not blow anything up. The salmon was a tad overcooked but the jerk-spiced corn was delicious. Counting this as a major success.
More mountain laurel, so pretty… tho apparently very deadly.
I’ve always wanted a heart-shaped tub and if I ever own a home again, I’m putting one in. They absolutely improve your bath enjoyment 100x.
After this fire died down, I had one of the most comfortable nights in memory sleeping in a jumbo king-sized bed. I still do not own a bed! I guess I should get one of those before I order my heart jacuzzi…
Right after sunrise at the Nacoochee Indian Mound.
I had a late breakfast at Hemlock Falls but I haven’t gone thru those photos yet. Reliving this perfect weekend as long as possible!

  1. Sounds like you had a fantastic time. I would love to go hiking and camping but at the moment we are only allowed to go as far as 5 km from where we live. Can’t wait to see the world again, living in isolation without any human connection was challenging for me. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 😀 Aiva

    • I understand and worry the US (especially Georgia where I live) is no longer taking appropriate precautions. But I hope you are able to experience green spaces again soon. I think everything holds risk but I’m hoping the summer and being outside significantly lessen those risks! Hope you’re hanging in there!!
