MARCH 10, 2014 (Monday)
Grey skies but cleared up and was a lovely day.
We woke up and went to the meet and greet this morning. They had quite a few people from the different activities around. They all pitched their event and usually gave out a free coupon. We ended up getting three free tickets – one for “The Tomb” (Michael wants to go to it); one for “Lumberjack Feud”; and one for a parrot place that looked fun.
Once we left the meet and greet, around noon, we headed to the knife museum. It’s only about fifteen miles or so away but it takes about an hour because of the way the traffic is here. The knife place was quite fascinating (donation only) but you get knife overload. Never seen so many different types, colors, sizes, and shapes of knives in my life. I was wanting to see the salt and pepper museum too, but after the knives I felt my brain could not handle it. We also stopped for gas ($3.20 a gallon).
We went back “home” and got gas along the way and then picked up Lexi out front. Then we headed back to Sevierville to go to lunch at Ryan’s. We’ve been wanting their yeast rolls (yummy). We got there around 2:30 PM and had a nice leisurely lunch. Michael and I were really enjoying their chicken and dumplings.
Got back home barely in time to go to the wine and cheese happening at the activity center. What a wonderful woman who runs the activities. So sweet. Great selection of cheese, fruit, and wine. There were about fifteen or so of us who went (Michael stayed home – gout, so he says) and we all had fun. We hated to leave at 6:00 PM, but Rhonda had to go pick up someone. Really would have liked more time visiting but it was great fun.
We are now back home. That was our day. Hope yours was great!
