Hello, Kittens and Dawgs! Last week, I started sharing two of my regular Friday segments, Skywatch Friday and Celebrate the Small Things on Thursday as a way to make the content more enjoyable for all who stop by.
In my Skywatch Friday section today, I’m taking a look back to our December day trip to Bryson City and Dillsboro, North Carolina. These two towns are about 30-minutes apart. We had a lovely time strolling around Bryson City and shared some of those photos here and here.
We were in these mountain communities in the middle of the week and there were no worries of crowds or traffic. When we got to Dillsboro, we decided to swing by to see the left-behind movie scene props from Harrison Ford’s hit flick, The Fugitive.
I photographed this last in late fall 2013. The angle and exposure were not the best in those shots, so I was glad to have another chance for a do-over.
This time I zoomed in more for a better view and in the below picture if you click to enlarge you should be able to read Illinois Dept. of Correction on the side of the bus.
It was a splendid day for early December to be outdoors soaking up the sunshine even with the occasional wind gusts.
After we got done in Dillsboro, we stopped off to see the Balsam Mountain Inn and as the veil of night fell, we venture to Pigeon Forge on our way home to enjoy the lights.
Today, I’m Celebrating the Small Things include…
I know I’ve said it before but I’m celebrating living in a place I love and can have many do-overs on photo-ops or moments to just soak up the beautiful mountain atmosphere. I know there are some who visit may only have that once in a lifetime experience or perhaps an annual trip to this part of the country that we call home. I count us truly blessed to live here and do not take a moment of it for granted.
What are you celebrating?

Tomorrow, I invite you to join me for some social media fun and your weekly dose of laughter with Friday Sillies.
