Umbrella Dance in Dillsburo, NC 2001

I haven't blogged yet about Dillburo, have I? It was one of our destinations a few years ago. I believe that the 3 of us Michigan gals passed through it on our drive home from Helen, GA. We thought it looked like a really nice little town. And it is!! We convinced the others that we should go here. We did a number of things this trip...but at nights, there was very little to do - all the shops closed! So, one night, we were taking a walk in the drizzle...we stopped near the train station and did the Umbrella Dance...

What else did we do this trip? We went to Maggie Valley and did dinner and a show - "Sweet Carolina Nights". This was promoted as a buffet dinner...but was really more cafeteria style. You carried a plate and they asked what you did not serve yourself. But it was still good food. The show was fine.... I remember that there was this one gal who gave all of us the impression that she was the star of all her high school musicals...but that doesn't mean that she was great! She just thought she was. However, the piano player was fantastic! We bought a cassette of his.

We wanted to do a mystery dinner ride on the Great Smokey Mountain train...but it wasn't happening the week end we were there.

We wanted to go white water rafting...but it was too cold & rainy.
We really enjoyed our Bed & Breakfast. We stayed at the Old Towne Inn where we had the Dogwood Suite. Lena, our hostess, made us some wonderful breakfasts and kept the coffee coming. Remember girls, "it's for my sister"!
