From the California Ocean, Across the Country, Through the Trees to Georgia We Go!

The need to explore my new community of Buford, along with a strong sense of aesthetics and a great camera phone, reveal the natural beauty and colorful progression of my first autumn in Georgia.

Having recently relocated to Buford, Georgia from Newport Beach, California, my current interests lie in discovering all aspects of my new community, including the history and culture in which Buford and the surrounding townships were founded upon and the natural beauty this area displays.

I consider myself a newly appointed 'Peach' (nom de plume) and with this, all things southern, especially of the Georgian variety, intrigues and escapes me. I would like to ask you, my new community, to offer any insights, suggestions and information that would enrich my experience here in Georgia.

My main objective is to build a like~minded community through open dialogue and become a part of this wonderful city. Please feel free to follow my Blog, as I like to share and exchange local insights & deals, personal hobbies & interests and everything 'Peach'.

First up: Exchanging the beach and sounds of the ocean, for the natural beauty and abundance of Georgia's autumn.

Please enjoy these photos. I would appreciate your feedback. BTW ~ No PhotoShop Required! ~ 'Special Thanks' to the Buford/Dacula Patch, for giving me my first connection to the community and this Forum to share my Voice.

Hi Angelica - Have you visited the museum of Buford yet? I bet you would enjoy it.

Thank you Kristi! No, not yet but I intend to very soon. I have just been reading this current Patch Blog Post about The History of Main Street in Buford, which has given me some good background on the area. Thanks to Rebecca Bradshaw for her Post: http://buford.patch.com/blog_posts/the-history-of-main-street-in-buford

Angelica, as you may know I'm a native Southern Californian myself. I've been in Buford for 7 years, and now can't imagine ever living anywhere again but the South. Drop by the museum sometime on a Friday if you can, and let's exchange experiences. If you can't, then email me at fridaysatmuseum@gmail.com. Looking forward to your blog! Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca ~ I appreciate your invitation very much, and will email you to come by on a Friday to visit you and the Buford Museum. I believe I can learn a lot from you, since you have about 6 years & 8 months more experience on me ~ ; - ) See you soon ~ Angelica ~
