I am trying again to post "the one that got away". I still don't know what happened to it. Weird, huh?
Whenever I go to Gatlinburg we always make a couple of trips to Pigeon Forge. Although if Pigeon Forge keeps growing it will be the same city as Gatlinburg. I mean, you can't tell where Sevierville ends and Pigeon Forge begins anymore. They used to be quite separated. I'm not sure if I like the growth or not.
Anyway one of our "must" stops is to The Old Mill. It is just a little ways off the main drag and I think it is so pretty
And it actually is that - An Old Mill. I think they still ground things to this day. I know they have a restaurant and it is a must visit if you like country cooking. I mean, com'on, you are in the heart of country, TN, you gotta have some country cookin'. This is the place to get it and take some gorgeous photos while you are at it.
If I remember correctly I think you can walk to the Candy Store featured in my other post and to a few gift shops when you park in this area. I love it!!
I love anywhere that you can park and walk to get something good to eat and then go out and hit a few gift shops and then have a little something sweet in the candy shop, all the while having photo opportunities after photo ops with all the pretty surroundings!!
These first three shots are unedited so I took a quick moment to hop by picmonkey and hurriedly applied orton to this picture since I've heard a couple of you sing the praises of "orton" I must admit it did make a pretty picture.
Can you tell the difference between these last two pics?
Okay - one more effect and then I must get back to work.......This one is called "gritty" I am going to post this before it disappears!!
