Social Circle Parade

Adam Murphy as Grand Marshall

Adam Murphy as Grand Marshall

I’ve had the opportunity to do a lot of wonderful things in my life, but being a in a parade wasn’t one of them.  That is until a few weeks ago.  I was so excited when the City of Social Circle asked me to be the Grand Marshall in their 14th annual Social Circle Friendship Festival. 

I got to ride in a vintage Ford Shelby convertible right through the heart of one of Georgia’s greatest little cities.  Hundreds of people lined the streets to watch the parade and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.  Meanwhile, I simply enjoyed the moment!

Once the parade was over festival goers walked around and looked at all the vendors.  They had arts and crafts, good food and live musical entertainment.  I would personally like to thank Social Circle for their good ole fashioned Southern Hospitality!

If you’re ever headed out I-20 I would highly recommend you pay a visit to Social Circle.  They have one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at called the Blue Willow Inn.  It’s good southern food and fellowship at its finest!

Low Country Wedding

Just imagine smiling faces, beautiful places and a low country boil.  That’s what you’ll get when you attend a wedding along South Carolina’s coast.  My wife and I just visited the Grand Strand in Myrtle Beach for a friends wedding and it was a blast!

We made a long weekend out of it by relaxing on the beach, spending time with friends and eating fresh seafood.  One of the best meals all weekend was the low country boil at big guy’s house.  He cooked shrimp, corn, sausage, chicken, potatoes and scallops all in one big pot.  I give it an A+. 

It was definitely a low country wedding to remember.  One that makes you appreciate all that the Carolina coast has to offer.

Hellas

Santorini, Greece

Santorini, Greece

It’s one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  The locals call it Hellas and we call it Greece!  My wife and I recently traveled to this great country in Europe and it was definitely a sight to see.  We used our sky miles and flew direct on Delta which is about a 10 hour flight. 

We toured around Athens for a day and then it was off to the islands.  Our first stop was Mykonos island which is famous for its beaches.  We spent three days there soaking up the sun and enjoying traditional Greek food.  Personally, I thought the food was fantastic.  You haven’t had a real Greek salad until you’ve ordered one in Greece.  It’s loaded with fresh tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, onions, olives and huge piece of feta cheese.  Oddly enough there was no lettuce in the salad.  It was so good that we ordered a Greek salad with almost every meal. 

Our second stop was Santorini island which is a slice of heaven.  We spent three days there as well and the scenery was spectacular.  We relaxed on their red and black beaches.  Yes, the sand was red and black.  Plus, everywhere you looked there were little white houses with blue shutters and all of them had the most amazing view of the Aegean Sea.   

If you’ve ever traveled to Hellas you know exactly what I’m talking about.  If not, I highly recommend that you go if you ever get the opportunity.
