P.J. Gilligan, Burkittsville, Maryland

Hey there!! I have 2 or is it 3 other trips to share before this one actually did happen in life but for some reason I just wanted to share this amazing one real quick 'cause it was so awesome. Not that the other trips were not great as well ...but this one included some awesome must see spots!!! It was a quick getaway over Memorial Day weekend. Come along with me ... & please enjoy!!
What or where are we visiting today, you might ask? Well, it would be "P.J. Gilligan Dry Goods & Mercantile Co. Burkittsville, MD Est 1821". They are frozen in the 1860s. They have a very odd open schedule, so we were super glad they were open when we drove on by. Stop in and look around, but they are only open 11-7pm on Saturdays and 12-7pm on Sundays. I love history ...love stopping in to see some old business that might have had some great historical folks stopping in to see or visit. Look at that step ...who might have step up there? If you are ever in this area please do stop …

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??…
