Eighteen years ago today we traveled to Gatlinburg, TN, got our marriage license in Sevierville and on to Gatlinburg where we booked our wedding at one of the little chapels there for 3 p.m. As luck would have it, it started to rain just before 3 p.m. and they had to come and get me with an umbrella so I wouldn't get my dress wet going from the dressing area to the chapel but all was well and the sun was shining when we came out. We've had our ups and downs like everyone else but for the most part it's been a wonderful 18 years and we're hoping to see many more.
It wasn't as warm here this morning, time to move on. The day is supposed to warm up a lot though.
We left Nashville just after 9:30 a.m. The skies were bright and sunny. We got to the Natchez Trace Parkway and it was just beautiful. So beautiful that we didn't make it far today. Gordon was stopping at almost every parking area there were so many photos to take.
We took our anniversary photo at the first one.
Here are photos taken along the way.
We hadn't planned on how far we would go today or where we would stop so as it got on to 3 p.m. we thought we'd better make some arrangements so we got off the Trace. I checked on Miss Pinky and found a KOA that was on the east side of Lawrenceburg, TN about 17 miles away. We got there and no KOA nor did anyone know about it. Fortunately there was another RV park across the road from where we stopped to ask directions. It's a nice little park called Powderhorn Campground. So we're here for tonight. That's all we've committed to for now. I'm exhausted and can't imagine how tired Gordon must be.
I took so many photos today it's hard to decide what to post.
These horses happened along at one of the stops
Here's our site at Powderhorn Campground

Our biggest expense this month was the purchase of travel medical insurance, without that we would have only been about $100 over budget. We also stocked up on some foods that we can't buy in the U.S. and campground fees were quite expensive. So we'll have to try to make up some of this over the winter!
