Trillium & Dogwoods

Not sure about you ... but I don't always get the time to stop and enjoy the blooms. While visiting Cades Cove and The Great Smoky Mtns in Tennessee ..we got the chance to enjoy the trillium and dogwood blooms. I found a really cool website about "Ten Things to Know about Trilliums", which I thought was so super cool info., that I didn't know, I love learning, go check it out just for fun, did you know all that info.? 39 native trilliums in the US? Wonder about what is around in Canada or other countries? really??! Now I wanna find them all, who is with me? I have never seen any kind but the white ones, what about you? I got start a check list of every one I need to find. Usually I see trillium off on the sides of the road in Virginia ... but there is never a spot to see them close up ... not safe to stop that sort of thing ... so enjoyed seeing these though. You enjoy!! Have a super great day!! & THANK YOU for stopping by. Hope you are well. Be Well & Be Bl…

Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church

Hey Friends, long time no see... the hubby & I have started camping again ...so I have stocked up on a few churches and cemeteries ... let's get into sharing. This week I am sharing "Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church, Organized June 16th, 1827" so says the sign beside the front there. I have always loved history, but I think most recently I have really just fell madly in love with all the historical sites we get to see ...the tombstones are so amazing, I wish I could know their story ...I guess I could google them and find out more. Such history. Hope you do enjoy!!! If you ever get the chance to be in Tennessee, Great Smoky Mtns, get back Cades Cove ...you will be amazed by the beauty. Lots to visit and see. Please don't forget your camera. Never a dull moment. Please join us at "InSPIREd Sunday" Hope you are well this week. Be Well & Be Blessed. Thank you for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( ;

Cades Cove, Tennessee

Lots to see while at Cades Cove, within The Great Smoky Mtns. It's an 11 miles loop, there are many stops to drive in and get out an explore. Stretch your legs and get in some hiking if you so desire. Such a must see. I love all the history, the style of all of these barns and buildings. I would guess when it is more prime season there would be even more going on. Even though it was off season (rainy overcast day) so to speak, the crowd was there! Such history and awesome view to see. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Townsend, Tennessee Casita Rally

Back in April we had a Casita rally to go to in Townsend, Tennessee, we stay at a gorgeous KOA campground "Townsend - Great Smokies". It was in a great location, not to far from Cades Cove, The Tail of the Dragon, The Great Smoky Mountain National Park & so many other great must see sights.  Great folks there. The shots are from the pot luck dinner we did have ...all sorts of yummy-ies were there. The folks were super creative a veggie pepper train and the pies have little Casitas ...if you can get in there and see them, a bit small ... hope they show up there??! If you have ever been to a pot luck what have you taken to share? Would love some advice as to what you bring? You always wanna bring something that folks will enjoy and will eat, ya know??! I took homemade cookies, & I was for sure that folks would love them, but you know they didn't? Funny thing is, I have taken them to other events and folks eat them up like they are made of something extra special??…

Tail Of The Dragon

"Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap" with 318 curves in 11 miles. It is really fun for the motorcycles and classic cars, all of the curves there are a camera crew waiting for your picture ...but it is fun for every one. Unless you don't do sharp curves? This pull off restaurant and gift shop ... was a great place to take in some sights.
If you can not read the sign on the last shot "Caution: Watch For Falling Parts From The Tree Of Shame" ... these are parts from falling motorcycles.
I am almost positive that part of this road is in Tennessee and part in North Carolina ...but I don't have the picture of the sign and it is to curvy to take that picture. Yes, we did pull over for several bikes just so they can go on wizzy by. Some of those bikers are nuts they way they drive that road!!! Are they drunk or what??!?! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

Cades Cove, Tennessee

Have you ever visited "Cades Cove", Tennessee, within the Great Smoky Mtns.? 
It is an 11 mile loop. Such gorgeous views, no matter sun or rain. It was a bit blue, bits of rain here and there. There were lots of photographers trying to grab a great shot. It was fun to see. Every one was enjoying the views.
If you recall Gatlinburg had been through recent fires, so it was quite sad to see all the destruction. I sure hope that all who lost items will soon find a way to rebuild, etc. Fun to think about they way folks use to travel in the olden days. Hope you are well today and enjoy your visit. Thanks for stopping by. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Kerr Lake, North Carolina

Hey there!! Thanks for stopping by today, We took a quick getaway over a long weekend in the end of April, 1st day of May to enjoy Kerr Lake Recreation Area County Line Campground. If you know much about that area of southern central of Virginia into North Carolina ...there are several campground put into or near the John H. Kerr Dam & Reservoir ...they had a ton of recent rain so the campground we were going to stay in was not well do all that rain. But this one as you can see had several campsite under water. It is wild to see what water can do. The hubby thought it was funny to be rowing along and see a picnic table under your kayak, hope thing will dry out okay soon enough. 
If you a looking for a great book, check out "The Hale Brothers" by: Kathyrn Andrews... such a great read ...I had a chance to read that series while on this trip. If you are an avid reader like myself, you find the down times to fit in reading. While the hubby is napping, while relaxing and enj…
