Yesterdaymorning we arrived home. ( there is no place like home :-)
Smokey Mountains is a beautiful wood. The cabin we stayed was gorgeous. From the deck we have a mountain vieuw. In the evening we hear the bugs. A special noise. We saw bears .....
Actually my husband saved the children from a bear. That was our first experience 3 hours after arriving in the cabin . The children were playing hide and seek. I was reading the logbook from guest from the cabin. And I red that bears came upon the deck etc.etc. Isis came in and I told her to call the others because of the bear..... at that moment I heard Pim shouting: a bear... mom a bear ... and Purdey screaming ! The kids gave together a hand and walk slowly backwards untill they didn't saw him anymore and then run..... The bear was between the cabin and them so they were not able to come to us.. after that the bear walked away from the car René jumped into it to pick up the childeren and bring them back. A scarry experience for them.. But also a tough story to tell to their friends.
After that we saw the bear every evening. And once in the woods also a mom with two cubs... I don't have to tell you that the littles bought in the visitorcenter a"cuddlebear". They loved to see the bears from a save distance:-) .
We saw in the Smokey natural park cabins from 100 years ago. Can you imagine how woman live there. Now I know that the book A people and their quilts is from this area. I have the book and will read it with a totally new vieuw .
I think you all read the camera story at Bonnie's blog.. When I have the camera here I share with you my pictures. I made in the smokey's with my other camera pictures . But that is with normal films. Tomorrow I bring them to the store.
I can tell you so much about our trip but I need to unpack my last suitcases and bring my house back as normal.
Talk to you later with more story's .........
