Our Beautiful Smoky Mountains of Tennessee

George and I spent a couple of days enjoying some hiking and of course some special time for  photography in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee  on January 17 and 18,  2017.   Two of our favorite places to go are the Tremont area (west of Gatlinburg)  AND the Greenbriar area (east of Gatlinburg).   We love going on those back roads and stopping to take LOTS of pictures along the creeks/water...

Today I will share two pictures for you... The header at the top was taken on 1/17 at TREMONT... I love sitting by the creek enjoying the beautiful Rhododendrons by the water...

The other picture  was taken on 1/18 at GREENBRIAR.  Again,  there are Rhododendrons along the creek bank.  But--I also love seeing the little bridge crossing the creek.

Hope you enjoyed a couple of pictures from 'our'  SMOKIES!!!!!  They are just so gorgeous!

Sunrise and Sunset from Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina

As you probably know,  George and I love to go to Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina twice a year.  We go in May and then again in late November/early December.  If I had to choose only one time a year to go,  I'd choose the NOV/DEC time since that is when we can see both sunrises and sunsets from our balcony at the Islander Inn.   It's also less crowded that time of year --so we have the beach to ourselves.  We do love to walk on the beach --and can do that both  in May and Nov/Dec.

WELL---we do enjoy going both times and both of us LOVE the wonderful fresh seafood we can get in nearby Calabash.

The header picture at the top shows a picture taken at sunrise from the beach.  And the picture at the top of this post shows the sunset  from the same location....  Hope you enjoy them!!!

Have an awesome January---2017!!!!  WOW.
