Following Dreams... Blackberry Farm...



Amanda had been dreaming of going to Blackberry Farm. Lucky for us, she let us share her dream. This was the view out our bedroom window... beautiful meadows wrapped in pristine white fences, hugged by the "Smoky" of the mountains...



Rockers invited us to sit back and soak in the beauty... slow down... be still... and know... I think this was the most restful few days I have ever spent in my life. We were steeped in beauty, comfort and gracious service... We enjoyed gourmet food throughout the day... All to pile into soft feather bed at the end of the day... and look forward to the next...




Old Walden Pond...




Amanda (Little H) and Jerry on our first morning's hike...



Gorgeous bridges...



Sheep and the llama... These little guys serenaded us with baas... distinct and individual little voices...



Dad and Mom in Waiting...



Barbara and Tony...



The inclines came shortly after this!



But, what a view off the trail...



Another beautiful bridge...



Meadows and fences...



The wonderful resting spot...



Then for dinner at night... The Barn. Reconstructed from a barn in Pennsylvania, this incredible structure houses a gorgeous and very elegant restaurant.




This was our last night... what a wonderful, restful weekend. For all the beauty and elegance of this place... it was the company that made it the wonderful memory that it is... I am so happy we were there for the dream... =)

Yes, Deb. Thank you, we were having a wonderful time. But, we always do... even in the tough times. That's what I love most about this little group. =)

Tanna, since I do not live in your neck of the woods and this looks like the Appalachians and you mention the word "smokey"...where are you?

CG, Blackberry Farm is just outside of Knoxville, TN. There is a hyperlink to their web site in the name on the first line. The service there is second to none.
