This morning we put Amber and Abby on a plane back to Orlando, concluding their 10-day vacation with us here at Wolf’s Haven. Amber wanted to stay busy visiting various places in the area and that is what we did. Cindy and I are worn out, but I think everyone had a good time while visiting. I’ll continue posting photos and videos from the remainder of their visit over the next week or so.
When we came back I stripped the guest room/bathroom linens, remade the bed and laundered the sheets and towels, helped Cindy finish loading the car with her candle wares so she could go to a show in Maggie Valley, then pressure-cleaned the front deck, stairs and plate-glass windows and finally did a lot of cutting back of brush growth around the cabin that had crept back up while I was occupied the past 2 weeks.
I’ve spent the rest of the afternoon and evening relaxing and even snuck in a 45 minute nap. But I’m still exhausted, lol.
Tomorrow we start packing for Florida and we’ll be leaving here early Tuesday morning to drive back to Orlando for a few weeks.
But for now the cabin is quiet; we’re missing the laughter of Abby and the presence of Amber. A slow, steady rain has been falling the past 2 hours and for a while a light, ethereal fog that gives the Smoky Mountains their name rolled in, making it feel like there was nothing else in the world but us and our cabin. It was a different feeling after the past 10 days.
