Just to get away from the hussel and bussell of Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge which are very touristy and you drive to Townsend, Tennessee which is called the quiet side of the smokies.
I belong to a group that goes to cemeteries to photograph tombstones that people who are doing ancestry need to complete or verify dates of relatives long gone at their request. Today was that day in Townsend.
Then after that and after our chili/coleslaw hotdog we just drove around checking any houses on the river for sale. It was not for sale, darn it. I passed by one and had to take a picture for you all. It is not the general house you will see in Townsend but it is typical cracker house. What caught my eye was the wringer washmachine on the porch, so Ma and Pa Kettle. Then down the street was this lovely church and seeing the heart on the steeple made me stop to take a picture and I hope you enjoy both. Come down to Townsend, Tennessee sometime, lovely place to visit and have dinner and stay in a cabin.
