Some Love for Tennessee

My goodness -  it seems like ages since I last posted, and while in reality it has only been a week (not counting my quickie post on  Sat) it certainly feels like so much longer.

I feel like I have been so neglectful!  I have been blog hopping when I can so you wont feel like I've neglected your blog.  It's only MY blog that I've shown little love these past days.
I was quite ill for a couple of days last week.  That put me way behind at the office which totally stresses me out.

I am at the office for 10-1/2 hours each day Mon thru Thur and then 8 on Friday and 4 every other Saturday.  Add 30 minutes each way for driving and an hour an a half each morning to get ready and that is pretty much my day in a nutshell.
My quickie post on Saturday showed some pictures that I had taken on a sister trip in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge TN.  I thought I'd share a few more photos from that trip for those of you who may have never been to that neck of the woods.

Another reason I love to go to Gatlinburg, besides the obvious "Great Smoky Mountains", is the streams.  I love water.  Just about any body of water will do.




I love the sounds it makes as it races over the rocks or the trickle of slow moving water as it meanders downstream.



I love the dancing of the light as it plays on the water and dazzles like diamonds.



I know these are not the greatest photos of the streams.  They are rather old.  I cannot find my latest shots, but I will and then I will share those.  They capture the beauty of the streams so much better than these.

I love to travel and I love nature. I certainly hope you do as well and will join me on my return (through sharing the photographs) to places that I love.

THANKS so much for stopping by.....

  3. Your pictures are beautiful, I'm with you on bodies of water, it's my favorite place to be. Hopefully you're feeling better. That's a lot of hours to spend at work each week, hopefully it's at a job you love, so it dosen't seem as much like work. Have a wonderful day! and thanks for visiting my blog!

    1. I talk about it too much too. But that's what our blogs are for - to talk about what we love and to meet like-minded people.

  6. Love your pics - hope you had a great time. Hubby &I honeymooned in Townsend. Its a quiet little town on the north side of the Smokey Mt Park. The local swimming hole is the big stream that runs down the mountain. I'm with you - there is nothing like the sound of a stream or creek ambling along the rocks. Great post. xo

    1. My sisters like nature and scenery but they dont get the feelings of happiness and joy that I do merely from a way a branch may twist in the tree. I find that so sad. Thanks for stopping by
