Our New Winter Hometown of Sparta, Georgia

Presently we are in the process of eventually making our House in Sparta, Georgia our permanent Winter residence.  Next Nov 1st 2015 we will officially move to Sparta for 6 months Nov 1st - April 30th.  We will come home (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) for 2 weeks every Christmas to spend it with our Parents, Siblings, Children, Grand Children and Friends.  We hope to put our current home in Carleton Place, Ontario on the market in late Spring, early Summer 2015.  From May 1st - October 31st we will live at our (not winterized) beautiful Cottage on Big Gull Lake, Ontario.  The following are pictures I have been taking of some of the homes and surrounding area of Sparta, Georgia and will add to it every few mon
