Skywatch Friday # 54: Cades Cove

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

Yesterday Betsy and I visited our friends Judy and Charlie, who were camping at Cades Cove in the Smokies.  Judy and Charlie camp there every year, and Betsy and I usually go over to visit with them at least one day.  We sit around a campfire (it’s been cool in the mountains) and get caught up on what each couple has been doing since the last time we got together.

We talked so much yesterday that we didn’t have time for a hike, so the best Betsy and I could do was drive to the beginning of the Cades Cove loop and get a few pictures.  That’s where the picture above was taken.

Yesterday was our 97th ‘monthaversary’.  We decided since we met so late in life we would celebrate our wedding ‘monthaversary’ as well as the anniversary.  Since it was on the way home, we decided to stop at Uno’s for a deep dish Chicago pizza.  It had been quite some time since we had one and that seemed like a great way to end a special day.

    I would have loved to have been at Cades Cove with you guys. Just right after the entrance was where I got my first bear photo a few years ago. I love the stillness of that place.
    You and Betsy are a special couple – monthaversary – so romantic. Here’s to many more months.

    How lovely to sit around a campfire and chat, especially with views like this.

    Nice place to catch up with friends, even if you didn’t make it into the loop. I have been having Cades Cove withdrawal, but just cannot find the time to go up there.

    Always good to catch up with friends and always good to see a smoky mountain view.
