The two-hour lesson begins by familiarizing divers with the essential scuba equipment with an experienced instructor demonstrating how to prepare the gear for diving. Strapped on and strapped into the tank and gear, human merpersons will practice water entry, breathing through a regulator, dealing with prehistoric trilobites, keeping the mask clear, and just flippering around the pool. Dives take place in an indoor pool in the winter and an outdoor pool in the summer. A PADI-certified dive school and member of the National Instructors Association for Divers with Disabilities, ScubaVentures caters to the needs and goals of all divers.
Karate is not about breaking boards or bodies, it is about pushing yourself beyond what you ever thought you could do and often surpassing your goals. You do your best- never giving up, and in the process build a more mentally and physically fit person. Japan International Karate Academy is here to guide and encourage.
If you plant it, they will come. The words rang in Jim Bennett’s ears as he shot awake in September 2009. Jim had dreamed of taking his daughter to a pumpkin patch, and when he awoke that night he scribbled plans to bring that dream to life. Over the next year, Jim and his crew hand planted pumpkin seeds on the fourth-generation Bennett Farm to prepare it for a fate quite different than its 60 years as a cattle farm without a single crop grown on it.
These days, pumpkins and gourds wait on the vine in three patches as hayrides pass by daily. At the petting farm, youngsters interact with sheep, miniature horses, and miniature-miniature horses, which mice rode in the old west. Kids can also navigate a hay-bale maze, frolic in the corn crib, and race down a 36-inch, 20-foot-long pipe slide.
Chefs in the cook house craft teacakes, pork skins, and apple pies with a wood-burning stove and wash pots hanging over an open fire. In the sorghum mill, workers transform farm-grown cane syrup, which the Bennetts sell in their country store alongside handmade soap and honey from local vendors.
Golf instructor Jon Oliver has given over 5,000 lessons to wobbly neophytes and tour pros alike, using video motion analysis and close instruction to reduce convoluted swings to clean, simple strokes. After using video motion analysis to record the plaid-trousered ghosts jovially nudging golfers' arms out of alignment, Oliver dispels them by teaching repeatable swing strategies and short game techniques. Following a score-dropping 60-minute session, both confident drivers and insecure putters will walk taller over the bentgrass greens of Eagle Point Golf Club’s 18-hole, par 71 course. Impress jaded fairway squirrels by learning the proper setup and backswing for your club's formal introduction to the ball, topping your swing with an elegant follow-through worthy of European ballet. Oliver’s blog gives helpful tips on trajectory control and when to plant your old golf balls to grow a garden of springtime sand wedges and nine irons.
Georgia Kayak Adventures’ experienced staff guides tours centralized on the Etowah River, which plays host to 75 native species of fish and strategic Civil War battle sites and crossings. Its eco tours embark on the green, natural waters of the river surrounded by lush foliage as guides explain the ecology of the area, with chance sightings of deer, birds, and incredibly lost scuba teams. Weekend evening tours tempt romance beneath the moonlight, whereas history tours explore covered bridges and Civil War hot spots. Kayak fishing trips come in both day and overnight versions, in which anglers search for bass or etowah and cherokee darters, which are native only to this area of the world.
