Weekend Reflections




Another fun thing my grandson and I enjoyed at Dollywood was riding the train. In the first picture you can barely make out our reflection in the glass of our train car. We were riding right behind the coal powered steam engine which was quite loud, especially when the conductor blew the train's whistle. We also got a light dusting of soot on us during our ride, but it brushed right off. In the second shot, you can see some of the people who were responsible for making the train run smoothly. To see more fabulous reflections from all over the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections.

I wonder if we were there at about the same time...no, you must have been there before us.

Our daughter's family spent a day at Dollywood and had a blast.

I think we've got a picture of the engine - or the one in Pigeon Forge.
