Wordless Wednesday

Smoky Mountain Railway in Bryson City, NC

The evening, I photographed Christmas in Dillsboro, NC we hopped over to the quaint Smoky Mountain community of Bryson City, North Carolina before dusk. While we walked around taking pictures, we bought coffee and cinnamon buns from Mountain Perks on Depot Street, which isn’t pictured but is left of the train across the street in the first picture. The coffee was good, but those home-made cinnamon buns were delicious!

In Bryson City, you can catch a ride on The Smoky Mountain Railway and you can also board in Dillsboro. A Christmasy train adds to the magic of the holidays. Don’t you just love it, the engine is the Polar Express?




It was such a cozy feeling visiting the Bryson City community during the festivities of the Christmas season. What small towns in your area give this sort of feeling?

Next week, I will share the last of my Christmasy pictures before I get back to everyday shots. That’s a snap for this week. It’s so nice to see & I hope you’ll decide to make it a repeat visit each week to share in  my photo ops. Wanna make me or someone else happy? Then, leave a comment! I’ll be hopping over to see you soon!

Create and Craft

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
