We were packed and ready to leave Nashville early. After the hugest breakfast that you have ever seen, we set off in a cab to the airport to pick up a hire car. Rob drove and Kathy navigated our way out of the airport and we were on our way to Gatlinburg. We stopped in at Crossville to meet bloggers, Betsy and George. It was fun meeting another blogger. I recognised her house and garden and the bird feeders from her blog. It is pretty amazing to feel you know people and places on the other side of the world when you have never met them, but that is what blogging does. We had a drink and a chat and then we were on our way again. We had to turn our clocks on one hour and it was late afternoon when we arrived at Laurel Springs B&B. It is old with a history and it is small and cosy. The hosts are helpful and friendly. We took their advice for dinner and parking. The little town of Gatlinburg is quaint but bordering on kitch. The Christmas lights were stunning.We headed to Cherokee Grill for dinner. Once again the meals were huge. I had Lemon Chicken and Bill had ground steak. Then it was home to climb up into our bed which is high off the floor.

Then we climbed into bed without a ladder.
