Today is the half way mark on our Smoky Mountain vacation. We spent one day riding motorcycles on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We are on the bikes for about 6 hours. It was great to see all the little towns along the way and ride the hills and curves. It was less of a challenge than I thought but still very fun. a We have taken the kids to 60 ft natural rock water slide called Sliding Rock then onto Looking Glass Falls where they swam in the waterfall. It looked to be about an 80 ft waterfall but I am terrible at that sort of thing so I'll go with more or less 80 ft. Yesterday we spent the day tubing and today we plan to hike to Devils Courthouse. It is a huge rock that hangs very high over the mountains. I was in much better shape the last time we went to it so I suspect I'll be tired after this one too. I have managed to stitch in the car a bit and work on dandelion sampler. Not as much progress as I would like bit progress none the less. This is my third attempt at the blog on my sons computer. Hope this one takes!
