On Friday we visited our dear friends Cathy and Jim Rosenbalm that live close to Boston, KY . You can see by the pics that they live in an enchanted setting in the woods on a lake. They are so far out that cell phones do not work very well and TV is limited to two channels. What a wonderful place to live.
We had a great time the two days that we were there. First day we took a ride on the Rosenbalm Yacht and it was very nice. Also, we took a tour at one of the many Bourbon distillers. They gave out samples.

Our campground is very nice and the pool is clean. We will be moving on to Hurricane Hills close to Boston Ky tomorrow to visit our friends Jim and Cathy Rosenbalm.

Today we biked a road in Cades Cove that was closed to car traffic until 10 am. This road is a 11 mile one way loop around Cades Cove. In the top pic we have 2 turkeys. Pic #2 Doug is nealing with a turtle. Pic #3 shows the beautiful scenery. Pic #4, believe it or not is a black bear.
We hiked to Rainbow Falls, I did this 40 years ago with a group from Antioch College, The distance is 2.7 miles one way, but the altitude difference is 1200 feet. So actually it is like walking up a 120 story building.We did make it after many stops and the trip down was very easy except for one fall. I'm ok.
When I came down with the Antioch group we stayed in this cabin Easter break 1972. No heat and it was really cold.
To say the least with biking 11 miles and hiking 5.6 miles including the 1200 foot climb we are really wiped out.

We decided to go to Dixie Stampede for dinner and a show that was very good. Food was good and way too much. They will not let you take pictures during the show so I took a couple before.

We biked the five mile trail around the base of Stone Mountain. This is the carving of
Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Jefferson Davis. Notice no Northerners here.
Think they forget who got them into the mess.

We went to the Georgia Aquarium today, we have always seen the sign for it on our way back and forth to Florida, but never stopped. I knew it was that larges Aquarium in the US, but until today we never saw it. The pictures say it all, it was fantastic. The Dolphin Tales show was hard to believe. The pictures with the divers and the one before we are in the underwater tunnel actually below them. I have a movie and tried to download onto the blog, but after an hour I decided to quit.
