It was terrific & so was the going-away basket!

Pretty drive...

Just outside of Knoxville on I-40...

Crossing the Tennessee River, almost there...See you in Pigeon Forge!


This one last post will bring our travels up-to-date. Well, up until we arrived in Pigeon Forge four days ago anyway. It's beautiful here and so far the weather has been nice. Cold at night, in the low 30's, but in the low 70's during the day with no rain. Perfect really, just the way we like it.

Anyway, back to today's post. The day before we left the Nashville area, Donna took me to Columbia to show me the sights. We stopped at the family home of President James Polk for a photo, then went down to the square to see the courthouse and then by the sporting goods store to check out their sign. Too funny!

Our last morning Donna made a terrific breakfast for us. The best omelet's ever! And she made us a terrific going away basket filled with all kinds of goodies like teas, jewelry, Tennessee pins and most importantly, a book entitled 'How to Speak Southern'. She is such a great gal! We were sad to leave but unfortunately time is marching on and so is the winter season.

So thanks for checking in & the next couple of posts will cover our first few days here in Pigeon Forge. Night....
