WE WERE SO EXCITED ABOUT TAKING THIS TRIP.
WE HOPED PIGEON FORGE WOULD HAVE LOTS
OF LIGHTS. IT DID NOT HAVE WHAT I THOUGHT
WAS GOING TO BE A WINTER WONDERLAND.
THE CITY WAS NOT! WHAT WE DID NOT KNOW
WAS THAT MOST ALL OF THE BEAUTY OF
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS WOULD, MAINLY, ALL BE AT
DOLLY WOOD! THE ONLY TIME WE COULD MAKE
THIS TRIP WAS WHEN DOLLY WOOD WAS
CLOSED. WE BELIEVE, NOW,  DOLLLYWOOD HAS
TO HAVE TIME TO PUT UP ALL THOSE THOUSANDS
OF LIGHT READY FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON.
THIS WAS A BUMMER. STILL THE CABIN WAS
WONDERFUL AND THIS WOULD BE OUR SECOND
TIME TO GET INTO A HOT TUB. YOU KNOW,
REMEMBER HURRICANE CREEK CABIN! WE SURE
HOPED THESE PICTURES ON LINE OF THE CABIN
WERE TRUE TO LIFE. THEY WERE AND IT WAS
EVEN PRETTIER!  THE CABIN WAS ALL DECORATED
FOR CHRISTMAS WITH IT'S OWN DECORATED
CHRISTMAS TREE. SO CHRISTMAS WAS IN OUR
CABIN,  THIS CABIN WAS PLENTY BIG AND VERY
COMFORTABLE SO WAS THE BED!  MEME DID NOT
LIKE IT SO MUCH HE NEVER CAME OUT. I HAD TO
GET HIM TO COME OUT ON HIS OWN. HE WAITED
FOR ME TO GET HIM.  I AM SURE MEME SAW THE
BIG STUFFED BEAR UP IN THE CEILING. THIS WAS
MY FIRST TRIP TO THE SMOKIES. WE ATE AT
SEVERAL DIFFERENT PLACES BUT TO US THIS
WAS THE BEST PLACE WE ATE AT WAS THE MILL
WONDERFUL DELICIOUS FOOD AND A WONDERFUL
ATMOSPHERE. THEIR CORN CHOWDER IS OUT OF
THIS WORLD! WE KNOW IT MUST REALLY GET
CROWDED IN THEIR PEEK SEASONS! THE MILL
COUNTRY STORE WAS VERY INTERESTING, TOO.
WE DROVE INTO GATLINBURG EARLY IN THE
EVENING. WOW, SO MANY SHOPS! I BELIEVE I
LIKED THE FUDGE AND TAFFY SHOPS THE BEST.
WE STOPPED AND WENT INTO ONE OF THE ICE
CREAM SHOPS AND WE HAD MALTS. WE WENT
TO THE INCLINE...WHAT A VIEW FROM UP TOP. I,
NOW, KNOW WHY THEY CALL IT THE SMOKY
MOUNTAINS! THEIR STRIP IS REALLY WHAT
GATLINBURG IS ALL ABOUT. I WAS DISAPPOINTED
BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE LIGHTS WOULD BE
OVERWHELMING AND BEAUTIFUL LIKE A WINTER
WONDERLAND. IiT WASAND WAS NOT FOR ME.
WE WON'T COME AGAIN UNLESS DOLLY WOOD IS
OPEN! WE WENT TO THE AQUARIUM WHICH WAS
REALLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF WHAT WAS IN
GATLINBURG FOR ME. THE HOT TUB WAS THE
HIGHLIGHT IN PIGEON FORGE. REALLY IT WAS
WONDERFUL! THERE WAS, ALSO, THE JACUZZI
AND IT WAS A BIG ONE!  WONDERFUL MEMORIES
WE DO HAVE. THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR
WONDERFUL GIFT...TURLY JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF
THE WORLD!  THANK YOU FATHER  FOR OUR
HEALTH TO ENJOY THEM. PRAISE THE LORD!  WE
SHALL RETURN!!
