What a wonderful vacation. We spent a week near Gatlinburg, TN at the Smoky Mountains. We spent the time hiking, biking, white water rafting and also zip-lining. We stayed at the Wyndham Smoky Mountains Resort where we had a one bedroom condo. We grilled out most nights and just enjoyed the laid back pace. We did several of the day hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. They were definitely challenging with all the climbing. We also went biking in Townsend, a town along the Little River. We were also able to bike Cade's Cove in the park when they close the road every Wednesday and Saturday morning to car traffic.
We went white water rafting with Smoky Mountain Outdoors and zip-lining with Foxfire Mountain. Both were a lot of fun and I would highly recommend them. We did go out to dinner one night and took in the show, Country Tonite. What a high energy show with lots of singing, dancing and costume changes. The last day there we went to Hillside Winery which was just down the street from our hotel. We came home with a bunch of different wines and cheeses.
Kind of sad to be home but things are getting busy with work. Just met with someone to do seat cushions for her banquette. Looking forward to getting some projects finished.
