This past weekend, my family and I attended the award ceremony for the Annual River of Words arts and writing contest which is sponsored by the Georgia Center for the Book, Project WET, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The award ceremony was being held at the Chattahoochee Nature Center in North Atlanta.
More accurately, my family and I went to the Chattahoochee Nature Center for a visit, and I had hoped to get some photos of the award ceremony, some of the artwork, and perhaps chat with some of the young writers and artisits. As it turns out, we headed out on the trails and more or less missed the ceremony. And by the time we had gotten to the pavilion where the awards were being presented, the card on my digital camera was full. I'll try again next year.
It was such a beautiful day, and our schedules just don't allow us to get out like that as often as we would like, so we seized the opportunity.
It's hard to believe such a place exists so close to some of the busiest and most congested areas in the metro Atlanta area.
Congratulations to this year's winners of the Georgia River of Words competition.
