Smokey Mountains 2

Well, today we had lunch at a quaint, former stage stop in Dillsboro, NC called The Jarrett House. We heard about this place from other Montona Owners Club members and they highly recommended it - they were right. We will now go back to our Nutrasystem ASAP. They have been serving people since the late 1800s. This area is loaded with wonderful towns to explore. We then took a ride through the Smokey Mountain National Park and it was awsome. It is difficult to describe except to say "WOW!!!" It was cloudy on our way from Cherokee, NC to Gatlinburg, TN and rained on our way back. This gave us contrasting views of the Smokeys and they were both fabulous. The trip is about 35 miles one way and took us almost two hours. if we had stopped and tried some of the trails along the way, it could ahve taken days. Our youngest grandchild celebrated her 3rd birthday today and we called Sarah and sang "Happy Birthday" to her. That put a smiling capper on our beautiful day. A weather advisory was just issued with high winds and maybe accumulating snow tonight through Monday night. We were planning on leaving for Georgia Monday but may stay another night. Tomorrow we are going to tour Maggie Valley and Cherokee, unless the weather is bad. If it is, we will try our new Splendide washer/dryer. Maybe both, huh?

What a wonderful way to try out your new washer and dryer! 'Can't think of a better way to watch the snow that might be falling over the entire east coast. Your drive today sounds fabulous! we love you both!
