I May Have Jinked Us

Cabin at the base of Serenity Falls, Great Smoky Mountains. November 10, 2008.

Last November Betsy and I spent a couple of days on the eastern side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  While searching for waterfalls we came across the cabin in the picture above, which is located at the base of Serenity Falls.  In November there wasn’t much water going over the falls, but the setting was so nice that we decided we would like to go back when there was more water.

Well, we made reservations a couple of weeks ago and are going back there later today.  But then Tuesday night I posted a picture of Betsy in the rain at a waterfall.  It started raining early Wednesday morning and has been raining fairly steadily ever since.  The weather forecast says that it will rain through Saturday.  I might come back home with several more pictures of Betsy in the rain.



On a more serious note, today is Purple Day, a day to increase awareness of Epilepsy.  The writer of one of my favorite blogs, Michele at Rocky Mountain Retreat, has to live with this disease.  She recently suffered from a series of seizures which left her hospitalized.  Fortunately Michele is doing much better now.  Michele is a very talented photographer who posts marvelous pictures on her blog.  Stop by her site — you’ll be glad you did.

    This is why I don’t do a lot of sight seeing until summer. It seems that no matter what we plan it rains. I hope the weather man is wrong and the sun shines for you. Have fun and stay dry.

    I’m so glad there’s all this support for Michele and her cause. Thanks on her behalf for your kind words. Of course there’s not a bit of flattery there coz it’s the god’s trueth. Every word.

    The cabin looks beatiful. Hope you have a good trip and have a chance to do some of your hikes in dry weather. The waterfalls should be running strong, at least.

    You are too funny. It may be all your fault. Don’t let the camera get to wet. We will be looking for pics. when you and Betsy get back.

    Besides, you have to have water for water falls. Right?

    Oh, dear….I think you two must be doing rain dances while you view those falls!

    Well it is Friday afternoon and it is still raining, so I guess you two have been out walking in the rain all week.
