Wednesday 2nd April 2008

We left our hotel after a lovely breakfast of pancakes, eggs and sausage patties. We drove to the Fallingwater Cascades and walked down through the forest to see the waterfalls. It was not quite so easy walking back up but it was well worth the trip.

Starting our journey to our next stop took us through a little town called Buchanan. This was so pretty we stopped here and had a wander down the high street. We stopped at a soda fountain and treated ourselves! Frank had a coke float and I had a caramel sundae.

After another couple of hours on the interstate we stopped for a coffee and cookies and filled the car with 'gas'. We got to Johnson City, Tennessee at around 4.30pm. We has seen a place advertised called Jonesborough which is the oldest town in TN so decided to take a look around. It was an old Frontier town and was worth seeing.

We called in at Dixie Barbecue for dinner which was fantastic. A tiny little restaurant run by one lady and the cook. Not at all a tourist trap and not part of a huge chain, so well worth trying!

Tomorrow we hope to go to Davy Crockett's birthplace before heading north for the night, somewhere in Kentucky!

Sadly, we only have one night in TN and then we head north to Kentucky. Maybe next trip to USA we will get to visit more places (including the Keys!)
