I am a semi-retired self employed Licensed Massage Therapist. I currently live in Vidalia and enjoy playing at the river and the swamp cabin. I love paddling on the river in canoes, kayaks, and SUP boards. I am also now offering our lake house in Vidalia on airbnb. It is a small lake but is still fun for SUP board paddling and fishing off the dock or even the back yard! I was born in South Georgia, grew up in Orlando, Florida, spent eight years in Jacksonville, Florida, before moving to Vidalia, Georgia where I now reside.
If someone asked me what are the five things I could not live without, they would have to be:
4. Shelter (but only in severe weather).
What feeds my Spirit and restores my Soul are being in nature, especially the ocean, a river, a lake, or even a nice pool in the beautiful outdoors. Hiking a mountain trail with streams and small waterfalls is extremely energizing and joyful to me. I find my energy being quickly depleted when I have to stay indoors. That is the reason I designed both my cabins with large windows to always give me feeling of being outside in beautiful nature settings. Being with animals has a wonderful, soothing effect on me. I usually keep my dog, Happy with me whenever possible.
I love food cooked outdoors better than in the kitchen. I particularly enjoy food cooked on sandbars in dutch ovens over hot coals! In my opinion, everything is better outdoors!
I used to offer massage therapy on the dock at the river and on the porch at the Emerald Forest Swamp Cabin. Even a massage on a pleasant evening outdoors is better than indoors. At least it is to me.
My style of airbnb hosting is to meet the guest at the cabin, spend some time showing them around, helping them get online, etc., then leave them to enjoy themselves and being as close as a phone call in case they need something or have questions.
My life motto is to live in the moment and appreciate my precious life in the short time I have to enjoy this amazing, beautiful world, and to try to bring good, positive, loving energy whenever I am with people.
