They took us (George and me) to a place we had never ever been. Mark and Robin love to go on all of the backroads in their shiny Red Jeep --and this is just one of the areas they visited not long ago... WOW---how extremely gorgeous, way back in the mountains/woods...
We went to the Citico Creek Wilderness area in the Cherokee National Forest. The closest town is Vonore, TN ---but you may know that area for being not far from the Cherohala Skyway (between Tellico Plains, TN and Robbinsville, NC). As we followed the Citico Creek up up up the mountains, we saw many rustic camping sites along the way... I truly felt like I was in PARADISE, and I told the family that this wilderness area reminded me of the nearby Smoky Mountains --back many years ago when the Smokies were less crowded --with fewer people around and no traffic problems....
My favorite picture from the trip: Mom --in the hammock--enjoying the company of 2 of my 3 sons on Mother's Day.... Talk about relaxing!!!!! Close you eyes and imagine being in a hammock with the sounds of the water nearby --and the birds singing above us..... "Heaven on Earth" for me!
George took his turn in one of the hammocks also.... Oh how I love that man!!!!
Thank You so much, Bert, Robin and Mark, for making my MOTHER'S DAY so very very special!!!!! I am ready to go to Citico again ANYTIME --as long as I can ride in the Shiny Red Jeep!!!!!!!! ha ha ha
Hope all of you are doing well and staying healthy. I have many friends who are struggling with all kinds of health issues --so today, I remember them with my prayers and love.
I am doing quite well right now (Knock on Wood) ---so I hope I can say that for many months/years to come!!!!!
Hugs to ALL,
