It is getaway time. This year, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary, Jo, my wife, and I are doing something special. We are staying in a little log cabin along the Little River in Townsend Tennessee, the gateway to the Smoky Mountains.
Just two weeks after our anniversary weekend blowout parties I decided to make sure Jo got some rest and relaxation so instead of our usual trip to St. Augustine for a week at the Inn were in a secluded little log cabin enjoying the sounds of the crickets, the rain on the tin roof and the special Jacuzzi. Tomorrow we’re going to enjoy leftover BBQ we picked up on our way through Georgia, a trip through Cade’s Cove and, hopefully, a clear view of all the meteor shower after dark. We have a special viewing area high in the Smokeys where no city lights can encroach. Hopefully I’ll be able to post some awesome long exposure shots on Wednesday. It has been very overcast since we got here so night viewing may not happen.
Below is the front of our cabin named, Manna, as In Manna from Heaven, or food from heaven. After reading comments from other visitors it looks like the cabin is correctly named.
Inside the cabin is warm and friendly. It reminds me of our log home we built 25 years ago.
