Christmas Lights in Gatlinburg, TN

As I mentioned in my last blog post,   George and I spent a few days in the beautiful Smoky Mountains with good friends, Judy and Charlie.  We went just to be together and enjoy each other's company at the Rocky Waters Motor Inn---but we also went to see the gorgeous Christmas lights in  Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.  (Those city leaders go ALL out in those 'resort' towns, and George and I haven't been there during the Christmas season in awhile.  By going during the week before schools are out,  there weren't many people around --which was wonderful!!!) 

Before dinner,  Charlie drove us through Gatlinburg ---but we didn't get any pictures then.  BUT--my Sweetheart later (after we got back to the room) walked back down toward town and took a bunch of great photos...  Hope you enjoy seeing some of Gatlinburg all lit up for the season!!!!  In the picture above,  you can see the Space Needle sticking up in the distance... Anyone who has ever spent time in the 'burg has been to or seen the Space Needle.  Click on the pictures to enlarge them...

This big horse could be seen from our motel...  Isn't he gorgeous?

Want to take a walk through the lights????

For those who know about Gatlinburg,  this picture was taken near the Aquarium.  Love the Christmas tree!!!!

I have many more pictures to show you ---but that will be next week.   There were fabulous pictures in Pigeon Forge and we walked around Patriot Park and took patriotic pictures...  SO---that will be next week.   Hope you enjoyed some pictures from Gatlinburg today.

Have a wonderful weekend --and I'll see you on Monday.
