Our Labor Day getaway
After church on Sunday evening, we headed south and spent the night in Athens, TN. Our first destination the next day was Murphy, NC. I was so overjoyed to find our beloved Shooks Marina and surroundings unchanged and just as we left it years ago. The church we four Bentley kids sang specials in was still there, Kristin's pet rock was unmoved, you can still swim on the boat ramp, and I sat on the rock steps where Grandaddy would sit for hours and watch his grandkids swim. I hope you all can make it back some day and bring your spouses who have never seen our Hiwassee Lake!
Then after enjoying some delicious juicy peaches from Mountain Man Produce, we headed north up through Bryson City and stopped at Cherokee to see Mingo Falls and tour the Oconaluftee Indian Village.
