American Queen Steamboat
American Queen River Cruises: Interested?

American Queen SteamboatWe’ve been trying to put together a tour on the Mississippi or one of the rivers flowing into the big river next year. It’s been tough trying to find a week that works for everyone, so I’m going to find a few weeks and ask whomever is interested to call me right away.  We’ll be able to lock in that time and get started with the deposits, etc.  Please keep an eye on the site for these few weeks – they will be set by Friday, July 18th.

Reconnaisance mission Dollywood was great!

What a gas!  Went on up to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood over the weekend and had a ball!  Are you considering coming along on our trip in October?  We’ll be seeing 4 shows, having four breakfasts and two dinners, shopping and enjoying a day at Dollywood as well!   Dollywood, in case you haven’t been there, is wonderful. www.dollywood.com  Clean, pretty, with lots of attractions for all ages, benches under trees, candy and ice cream shops, a full buffet, wonderful train ride around the mountains at fall color time, and….even the tour bus and a museum of Dolly herself!  Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  While in Pigeon Forge we also looked through the multitude of shows and shops for you – and found a neat tour to enjoy at Busch Beans as well!  (Plus….When we leave Pigeon Forge on our October tour we will stop in Hendersonville for lunch before we head home.)  Check out some of the pictures I took on our pictures page here….with more to come of course in October.20140628_191635
