Any given Saturday (or Sunday)

Weekends were made for LakeLife. Where else can you peacefully view the most spectacular of sunsets from the bow of your boat, motor off, lulled only by the gentle rock of waves made by passing anglers on their way home after the day’s catch? Where else can you see a heron creeping along the shoreline, […]

A day in the life of a Logan Martin landmark
