Day 6-9   2 comments

Knifeworks is probably the biggest knife store that we have ever seen. I certainly didn’t think I’d buy as much stuff as I did. I think I outdid any other person on our bus!

We stopped at Holston’s Kitchen for lunch (Pete and Jane – bottom right – certainly made themselves at home).

before continuing onto Bush’s Beans Factory and General Store.

We were able to weigh ourselves “in beans.”

It is quite a family business, and we had no idea Bush Beans was located in Tennessee.

Leaving the Bush Bean factory, we saw a “Pepper Palace” that we decided we needed to visit.

WHAT A FIND! Kay thinks she is “hot stuff.” They sold very unique pepper products, dips, sauces, spices, rubs, etc.

Check out the faces as we tasted their own “hot” horseradish.

Could not leave the area without stopped to get our pictures with Dolly Parton and a photo to honor our vets.

Ending our day at the Sleuth Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre. Elvis even showed up!

The next morning we began our day with Pigeon Forge’s Blackwood Show.

What great entertainers they are! The show has been going on for 4 generations.

Donna Blackwood shared her story about how she had little hope, but a lot of trust in God, and overcame colon cancer in 2013. She is a remarkable person!

After the show, the group did a private show just for us!

We then moved on to the Titanic

for a luncheon in their “secret” room.

It was the best lunch of the whole entire tour! MAGNIFICENT! There to “pamper” us was Chris Massie (pictured below with Theresa, our bus drive).

While talking to Chris, we found that he is a clogger. We tried to encourage him to show us during lunch, but that didn’t fly…. BUT he did offer to come to our farewell dinner or hitchup breakfast and perform, but timing didn’t work out….

So we had to be satisfied with just getting a million pictures with him.

The Titanic Museum was something I think everyone was amazed over. We always thought it was a restaurant, but it is one of three locations that houses relics of the Titanic rescued from the ocean floor. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos, so you’ll just have to visit it.

Then it was straight to the Lumberjack Feud Dinner Show, do you get the feeling that all we do is eat?

Up early again the next morning to do more line dancing. Kay is the best teacher, and patient.

We enjoyed lunch at the Old Mill Stream and then our final Christmas Show, Smoky Mountain Opry Christmas Spectacular

And it was SPECTACULAR!

Back to the RV Park for our farewell dinner.

And an unveil of the ceramic pieces that everyone created.

Finishing up in time to take our final bus tour, Night Light Tour of Winterfest Trail in Pigeon Forge.

Finishing up our 9 day rally with a hitch up breakfast.

We had a great group of people. What a way to get into the Christmas Spirit.
