... And You Get There In a Car

My sister Bonnie and her husband David and I recently traveled to Pigeon Forge, TN to vacation with my sister Betty and her husband Keith at their favorite spot in the Smoky Mountains.   Here are a few memories from our drive there.   I'll break the vacation up into more than one post because of the number of pictures .... (click photos to enlarge for better views.   I didn't do much editing of these photos ... only what was available through Picasa).

.... everything is somewhere else, and you get there in a car

.... it rained the entire way down to Tennessee.    But the redbud trees were in full bloom and they made the drive beautiful

.... a brief stop at Luray Caverns, where Gary and I went on our honeymoon more than forty years ago

... redbud trees in bloom just outside the Luray Caverns entrance

... who can resist photographing a little girl admiring a little dog?

... to pass the time in the vehicle, I enjoy taking pictures of houses (through the windshield) ... we had a very brief respite from the rain

my dream car .... some day!     (sigh)

Bonnie and David .... taken at a rest stop somewhere in Virginia

... rest stop blossoms

Tennessee ..... yay!  (and it was STILL raining)

Hurrah!    The offices of Hidden Mountain Resort, less than a mile from our final destination!

An Afternoon in Ocean City

A few moments from our early-March stroll down the Ocean City Boardwalk ...

Early March in Ocean City ..... so very different than the way things will look come June, when the summer season begins in earnest.
