Home from Vacation

by Kay~Kacey on 9/22/2011

So much to tell, so little time. We had a fabulous vacation, just fabulous. A couple weeks of rest and relaxation and not much more. I have stories to tell and lots of photos to share, but I’ll leave you with just a few for now.

Oak Haven Resort Gatlinburg TNWe started the first day by driving to Gatlinburg, TN. Stayed at a wonderful cabin resort called Oak Haven. (much more on that later!) We managed to find us some…

yuengling beer on the porchYuengling Beer. Which we thoroughly enjoyed :beer: The first of many on the trip. We then drove on to Litchfield Beach for two nights…must find some photos from there. Drove through Myrtle Beach…OMGOSH so busy and crowed…and onto Holden Beach where we stayed for a week.

Man fishing at Holden BeachSuperGuy immediately started fishing. Notice the dolphins playing out in the ocean behind him? Well, they look like specs this small…

drinking at the beachWe also did a lot of…well…nothing at all. It was wonderful.

sunset at Holden BeachHolden Beach was turned weird…it runs east/west instead of the normal north/south even though it’s on the East coast. So we didn’t get any remarkable sunrise pictures over the ocean. Did grab this sunset down the beach the last night though.

We were going to go to Hilton Head for a couple of days, but it was cold and rainy by then, so we decided to go back to the Smokies, to the same resort we stayed at the first night. We got a different cabin, called Tara in the Smokies…which will be a blog post in and of itself soon.

We did a lot of nothing those two days too, but we did make a running stab at Gatlinburg proper for a few hours. Crazy traffic and crowds, but I’d never seen it so I was glad we went. Then went to the Arts & Crafts area right out of Gatlinburg and browsed there a bit. Came back to the cabin…and did a lot of nothing again.

Woke up to the most spectacular sunrise ever. ™.

More stories to come after I get my feet back under me and adjust to the real world… :help:

My wife rocks!!! She planned a wonderful and relaxing vacation which was wonderful (along with the company). All good, pics and stories of doing nothing should be quite enjoyable as only she can tell it. Thanks sweetie.
