Vacation: Day 5…

I will have to go back a little to the day before…
On the way back to the cabin from White Water Rafting… we stopped at the grocery store… like a supermarket… k16179646

They have about everything you need due to being in a Vacationing Town!…

Jeanette needed a little cash and proceeded to the ATM… and Vera and I went our own way to get more water for the coffee pot… drinks… etc. …

I saw Jeanette in line and decided to wait for her at the EXIT …

I then saw Vera and she seemed concerned about Jeanette…

It seems she thought the ATM had eaten her Debit Card and had called the managerk13158550 … Only to find out she had already put it in her purse… but, she had turned too quickly when he walked up and had pulled her knee…

A freaky accident… but, so typical of our trip…

She was fine until she actually started walking and you could see the pain in her face… k11415619

We were really concerned… Gave her an Aleve 220 … and we all decided to go to bed after talking and TV…

She says she slept fine sfo0174 … but, when getting on it … was just NO fun!

On Day 5… Vera insisted on making us all breakfast… Nothing could have tasted better!… x25261422

Scrambled Eggs

Bacon/Sausage

Biscuits/Gravy

Fruit

Sliced Tomatoes

Hot Coffee/Milk

and Janice’s Homemade Apple Butter

It was a feast!…

After cleaning up… we played a game called Left-Right-Center 51MPVZnPOCL__AA160_ with Pennies… The guys even joined in… It was fun keeping up with what we rolled on the dice and who was on our Left and Right… Next time we will up the stakes to dimes or quarters… k16209692

Carolyn, Bobby and I decided to try going over the Mountain again to the Harrah’s Casino 200px-Harrah's_logo_svg in Cherokee, NC… after that…

and the rest decided they would chill at the cabin…3362940125 

and played Scrabble I heard later…

We drove without any mishaps… Can you believe it?…

and found the Casino with no problem… being that Bobby and I had been there before…

Cherokee has really improved with lots of new shops… restaurants… etc. …

I always love seeing the creek that runs through the town… children always playing in it!200px-Bridge_over_Oconaluftee_River_in_Cherokee,_NC_IMG_4887

We played for a few hours… winning enough to keep playing… It is quite a BIG place on one floor… and very pretty!…

We ate a sandwich on our winnings … and then left for Gatlinburg… wanting to get home before sunsetI don’t want to be on the Mountain when it’s dark…

We arrived back to find everyone content and sat on the deck to chat some more…

Jeanette’s knee was really hurting her we could tell… but, Vera had been great at looking after her!…

Vera nad Jack were leaving the next day… and the three of us decided to stay one more day since we had lost a day to car trouble… and the Company we had rented from gave us 1/2 OFF the cost for an extra day!

One more day to go… and then HOME AGAIN!

  1. Sounds like fun! I love the mountains, I grew up going to the Smokies! My husband and I were there a couple of years ago…I couldn’t believe how much that area has grown. The mountains are still beautiful as ever! Glad you’re enjoying some time away with your friends! ~ Sheila

  2. Glad you were able to keep having fun and that Jeanette is on the mend. Look forward to the rest of your vacation.
