|SUNRISE on Sept. 5, 2013|
First, on Friday, August 30, we met another blog friend and her hubby. Nellie and Gene (photo below) were headed to Nashville to visit their daughter. SO--we met them (where else) at Cracker Barrel here in Crossville for lunch... Nellie has been a great blog friend for awhile, but this is the first time we have met in person. Twas WONDERFUL!!!!! You can see Nellie's blog (Berries and More) by clicking HERE.
On Labor Day (Sept 2), we drove to Ashland City (near Nashville) to visit with George's daughter and hubby --who have just moved to the Nashville area. We had a great day with them and are thrilled to have them closer to us (from Buffalo--where they lived before).
Then on Thursday, Sept. 5, we got up before dawn, took our car to Knoxville to the Toyota place for her maintenance. After that we headed to the SMOKIES for the day. We first did some hiking in the Tremont Area (on the Middle Prong Trail). It was a great hike and we saw SEVERAL waterfalls along the way. After that, we drove on the Foothills Parkway stopping at the overlooks for more photo opportunities. We finished the day by having dinner at one of our favorite places, the Texas Roadhouse. It was a fabulous day ---and we had over FOUR miles on our pedometers!
Today I will talk more about the Smokies Trip. Be sure to click on all photos for enlargements. Above is a picture of the SUNRISE we saw while we were driving from our home toward Knoxville.
