Georgia Aquarium 225 Baker Street NW Atlanta, GA 30313 (404) 581-4000 When I asked friends for suggestions on what to see while I was in Atlanta, several said not to miss the Georgia Aquarium.  What brought me here was to see the Gone With the Wind Museum in Marietta and honestly, I was more in […]

October 6, 2014 – After saying goodbye to my 88 year old mom last week for what I imagine to be the last time given her worsening condition, I’m having a hard time getting back into happy travel mode.  Even though no physical condition at the moment is life-threatening, the doctors say there’s really no […]

I was bewitched by Cades Cove from the first time I entered that 11 mile loop in July, 2013.  I was so enchanted that I knew I wanted to see more than I could if I spent just the summer having to divide my time with all the many other attractions of the Smoky Mountains. […]

As I’m planning my southbound trip down the Natchez Trace Parkway in the fall of 2014, these are my info-gathering notes as I start my basic itinerary.  I’ll probably hit the southern bound part near Nashville around October 29th.  I’ve got a lot more research to do and attractions to check out, so I’ll be […]

July 11, 2014 – I keep getting questions about why I’m staying in one place for so long when my I’m a fulltime RVer and my home has wheels.   All I can keep saying is that I so fell in love with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and there’s just so much to see […]

June 26, 2014 – During my previous visit to Clingmans Dome, I had intended to do this trail then, but got rained out and wound up having to run down the mountain to keep my camera from getting soaked.  But I had heard enough about the beauty of the flame azalea that only bloom in […]

I’d heard about Clingmans Dome ever since arriving at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee – it being the highest point in the Smokies at 6,643 feet (“On Top of Old Smoky”), also making it one of the highest peaks in the eastern United States . My first visit up there was at […]
