Halloween at Cabin Bluff, GA

Scott's company had an "executive get-away" last month. They held it at a place called Cabin Bluff on Sea Island in Georgia. It was soo much fun, I've never been somewhere like this before.

There was about 40 of us at the resort, we had it all to ourself. Each couple was given a golf cart to get around in. There was a fishing dock that we could go out and fish off of at anytime. They had a large container full of live bait-shrimp and another container that was the largest tackle box I've ever seen. They also had coolers along the dock full of water and beer, all of this was for us to use at our will. Never did we need to pay for a thing.

The larger cabins had a beautiful "living room" and on the tables there were baskets, some had a wide supply of chips, some were filled with fruit and other goodies. It was seriously like being at home, we could eat out of the refrigerator as we wanted, it was awesome.

They had guided activities for us: We were also able to go hunt deer and boar, we took dogs out and went quail hunting. We could go sport shooting, clay pigon shooting, golfing, fishing, whatever we wanted and there was someone at our beckon call anytime for anything, yet there wasn't anyone around breathing down your neck telling you what you could or couldn't do.

Which way'd he go...which way'd he go? (Quail Hunt)

It was fabulous. There was a cooler of beer and water at ever hole on the golf course, as well as on the bocce ball grounds. The service was unreal, I would LOVE to work somewhere like that! Well, I'd actually love to own something like that and be able to give the specialized service and attention to the groups coming in. They cooked beautiful yummy meals for us, and afterwards we go night fishing, play pool, sit around a large fire and tell stories, Halloween night it was a big costume party and we did karaoke all night.

I don't think I explained this well, but I've been meaning to get pictures up for awhile now and I just need to get them up...so here ya have it!!!

Our pimp'n ride, but we usually walked, it was beautiful!

So, uummm...how'd I get clear up here in this stand? Where'd I get this gun? You want me to sit here for how long????

Funny little story: as the guide was showing me how to load the gun, he handed me a bullet to put in the chamber, I paused and looked at him as serious and confused as I possibly could and asked him which way the pointy end of bullet went in...the look on his face was priceless!!! One of the gals standing close by said it was even more funny because I don't "talk" like them (the southern accent) and I sound like some yankee from the North East. Oh, it was a good laugh!

Oh, that looks like so much fun! Maybe Duane and I can do something like that when these kids are finally out of the house. A long wait but it will be well worth it!

Stephanie said...

Okay, so all I want to know is why, if you were in Georgia, you didn't come up to see us? I mean, you were only like 6 hours away! ;)

It looks beautiful there and you seriously look like a model in your first picture.
It's so much fun to get out of the ordinary and go someplace new.
I'm glad you had such a good time.

How fun! Now that is a work trip...I really can't complain because once Lyndon's company had a dinner in the shop...so I really get the whole "fancy work get away" You looked gorgeous for Halloween by the way. Maybe if you would EVER come around some of your fashion sense could rub off on me...a girl can dream!

Kalley said...

The area looks so beautiful. I'm glad you had a great time. By the way, you and Scott's Halloween costumes are fabulous. I love it.

I am glad I found your blog! Caroline is so sad that you are not going to be her teacher anymore. She doesn't want to go to church on Sunday...
