Day 3 Of Our Thelma And Lewis Vacation

Today we slept in a bit. After getting up we had breakfast in our hotel and then went out and about. We had no real plans other than being to our cabin rental office by 3PM. We started our day off by going to an new entertainment area in Pigeon Forge called The Island. The Island is still a growing area and has many empty store fronts. They do have a few stores that are open and it appears that they are hoping for many more to open this Spring and Summer. They have a large ferris wheel that Veronica and I are planning on going on both during the day and night in a day or two. This ferris wheel has a million LED lights that are computer controlled to do all kinds of designs and colors. After spending some time at The Island, Veronica and I went to a quilt store and bought us a couple of large quilts for use as a bedspread. Next was going to the Spring Rod Run.....owners bring their restored/antique/muscle cars to be displayed in various parking lots along the parkway in Pigeon Forge. They had some great looking vehicles in for the Rod Run. After walking around some of the strip malls we went and got some lunch. By the time we were done eating our late lunch it was time to head for the cabin rental office. On our way to our cabin we did a quick grocery shopping. We finally ended up in our cabin and settled in for the night. We have a hot tub on the screened in porch and i will be taking the opportunity to make use of it to help rehab my finger and knee...both of which I fairly recently had surgery on.
Below are some photos from our day visiting The Island and the Spring Rod Run:
