This is one of the barns. I forget the name of the barn, and I would really like to study the origin of this design. It looks like a large mushroom.
One of the homes located in Cades Cove. I am still amazed at how much work would have gone into building the homes.
This home was part store and part home. The woman who lived here never married and she was known to the people of the Cove as Aunt Becky. She helped raised her brother's children after he became ill. It is always nice to go to a community that has been frozen in time. There were no electric lines to pollute the view. As we kept looking at all the gorgeous pastures I kept wondering how many sheep could that pasture hold or what a lovely place for a garden. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong time period. However, I know God doesn't make mistakes. At times, I feel drawn to that lifestyle. I think I would have enjoyed it.
grace and peace,
