While we are at it...

Miatas at the Gap. Foot of Fontana Dam.

Looks like MG and Fiat owners hobnob at the Biltmore Estate. Meanwhile Miata owners make do with a dam meetup.

I've rented a nice two bedroom place in Townsend. The quiet side of the Smoky Mountains. We'll use it as a base and check out the area from there.

In the next little while, I'll review all your helpful hints, and start planning some of our time there.

Thanks!

Townsend is a nice town. Make sure you go to Franklin, NC for lunch at Cafe REL. It's located in a gas station (The Hot Spot Station) but ignore that. The food is excellent. When you leave Franklin, go up to Highlands stopping at Dry Falls and Bridal Veil Falls (at one time you could park beneath this falls but not any more). Highlands is where people with money used to spend the Summer before air conditioning A beautiful little town. There is an Ice Cream and Bakery in the "mall" shopping area on the main street. It's easy to find. If you get tired of curvy mountain driving, just stay on Rt 64 and that will take you to Rt 23 and you can GPS it back to Townsend. If you take Rt 441 out of Townsend, it's about 100 miles from there to Highlands. Might be a good day trip.

Thanks, Ken.

First rainy day retirement project is to start planning this type of thing!

As you head into the park from Townsend there is a little restaurant on the left called Riverstone Restaurant. It is a great place to get some good down home cookin'. Also Ken's recommendation of Cafe Rel is spot on. The food is great!

As you are going thru the park from Townsend there are lots of areas to pull off. Do it. the picture takin' is great in many of those spots.

That will be the plan! Spare batteries at the ready. Maybe I need another lens.
