The sun has finally broken through the chilly spring air – summer is here! Each year, I find myself drawn to the outdoors for hiking, swimming and relaxing under an umbrella with a glass of chilled wine and a great book.
Several weeks ago, I spent an afternoon at one of the most beautiful locations to enjoy the upcoming summer season (and year round)… Marina Bay on Lake Lanier. Just over an hour drive north of Atlanta, in Gainesville, the gated community of Marina Bay offers magnificent custom homes with breathtaking views of the tranquil northern shores of Lake Lanier and the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Just standing on the balcony of the well-appointed lakeside clubhouse, I felt relaxed immediately. The only thing better would have been to enjoy the pool or walk down to the marina and take a boat out into the cove. Marina Bay, which combines the essence of Nantucket and the ease of lakeside living, is taking “living the dream” to a whole new level.
The incomparable Tony Conway has given us something else to celebrate this summer… his highly anticipated new book, Tony Conway | Legendary Events! Filled with stunning photos of his spectacular events, décor and culinary genius, this book is a work of art. I am also honored to have several of my photos that I’ve taken for Legendary Events included in his book. It is a must-have for every coffee table and pairs perfectly with champagne!
