My weekend shots

I'm back from the south. I was in Tennessee over the weekend which was quite an experience but more of that in a later post. For now, I want to get my weekend shots up on my blog as I'm late but in all fairness, I didn't get back until last night and we had no computer access so this is my first chance to post.

Here is Saturday's shot. This is the Titanic attraction on the main strip in Pigeon Forge, TN. It is perfectly positioned on the strip to create a wow factor as evidenced by the picture. However, it also creates one heck of a traffic jam as you can see by the columns of cars ahead of us. Once we passed this, traffic started to move a little but it took us over an hr to go 4 miles.
Here is the view from the front of it as we passed it in the car.

This is Sunday's shot. We saw this delicate beauty in a shop window in Gatlinburg, TN. What a lovely example of artistry. Imagine, someone handblew this glass ship. Amazing!

Holy ships! Awesome pics from your weekend away.
Wouldn't your kitties make a beautiful mess of that glass ship?!

Oh my what a strange thing to drive upon... a ship looking as if it's half in the middle of the road. But how cool at the same time to see that.
Isn't that blown glass just amazing. There is no way I could do that! I'd make as big a mess as your cats!
Great pics!

Sorry for the fuzzyness of the ship photo. That was taken through my windshield but it was just such a sight I had to take the picture.

I don't have anything delicate out on display in my house because of my kitties. I've learned the hard way. LOL

Great post, Serene!! Love the pics. What a site to see that ship as if in the road!!! But it sure did slow traffic!!! The glass ship is beautiful. We had a friend that did that for a living. Fascinating to watch him!!

Waiting to hear more about your trip!
