A Hidden Treasure

I knew when Jimmy Helms saddled up in the canoe that today was going to be exceptional.

Image

We had already eaten breakfast at the nearby Grits Diner and talked a bit but as this retired Georgia Power Icon began to share his heart I knew that Jimmy “heard the music” of Crooked Creek.

Image

Image

He wasn’t in a hurry and he took every turn and sound in that wafted our way. We talked about cabbages and kings with the understanding that “what’s said in the canoe, stays in the canoe.”

Those who know me well know that I would much rather transmit than receive but I tried my best to be a good listener today. I’ll remember a lot of our conversation today, but I will specifically remember when Jimmy described our stretch of Crooked Creek as a “Hidden Treasure.”

We cruised past Logan’s Lagoon then passed through Hardie’s Circle. Before anchoring at Clyde’s Cove, we passed through Hickory Pass and under the Natural Bridge. Once we stopped, we fished our way back home drowning a few worms under a float along the way. Although we ended up with a mess of fish our goal wasn’t to fill the boat but to enjoy God’s Creation and some time together.

It was a wonderful morning and once again, Max and I were able to get to know someone even better. It just happens that way when you are willing and wanting to share this “Hidden Treasure” called Crooked Creek.
