We camped at a campground called " Indian Boundary" in the Cherokee National Forest. It is remote enough that there was no cell service or internet service for 5 days. It was wonderful being unplugged.
We met our dear friends, Bill & Barbara to camp there and had such a good time with them.
I just had to show you this next lovely picture of my friend Barbara's backside. She was in the creekbed, looking for salamanders to use for fishing in the lake. Apparently fish love them, I just loved catching her on camera.
We had a camp fire everynight, but on our last night we spent an evening with some other campers we met. My husband loves to play the guitar and is always up for what I call a "pickin' and grinnin' " session. It was loads of fun.
On the last morning there as we said goodbye to our friends, Bill and James serenaded us to a wonderful rendition of "Jesus Loves Me" There was some joke in there about how we didn't appreciate their sense of humor so early in the morning, but it was okay because Jesus loved them. lol
While leaving Indian Boundary, I did a little quilt block hunting. On the side of the welcome center is the first quilt block I found on a small portion of "The Appalachian Quilt Trail". If you have never heard of it, look it up. It takes you to all kinds of places. We only got to do a few on this trip.
One of particular note was in the town of Athens TN at the wonderful coffee shop.
We arrived in Murfreesboro and spent some time with DBIL& DSIL and went to the Grand Ole Opry. If you get this close to Nashville, you just gotta go to say you've been.
The show was good and Little Jimmy Dickens who is almost 90 still seems to be going strong.
I checked out a couple of fabric stores on my trip, but have been trying to cut down on the fabric spending.
There is a cute shop in Murfreesboro called Quilt Connection and I bought way to much fabric. It is a great shop and if you are ever in the area, you should stop by.
