The lost sea to Davy Crockett.

We left Nashville & took a route via Nolansville's Amish store, where a very nice fella sang to us in 2010. Predictably no sign of nice fella & the store was disappointingly different.

Next stop Point Park , a war memorial for the area of lookout mountain.

Spectacular views over Chatanooga.

We sneaked past the unmanned barrier without paying the required $5 entry fee...Nope no guilt yet. Thats another £10 for Sharrons Doggies !

Next stop The Lost Sea , Cave structure & underground lake.

We saw some interesting geological features including " Thw Devils Hole" If you stare down & see the devils face you have been bad.

The highlight of the trip being, a 2mph boat ride across the underground lake , the temperature a year round , 58 degrees was very welcome , the massive lake , some 230 ft by 800 ft , boasts depths from 15 to 65 feet , our enthusiastic guide Zack took us on this interesting tour with his 7 yr old " assistant" Hayden ( another tour guest ) who got to hold the flashlight .

A trip to Walmart to stock up on provisions for the next 4 days of self catering.

We arrive at the Tennessee cabins to be greeted by our host Mrs Chicken, our late arrival meant our key was in the cabin.

Our Davy Crockett inspired cabin boasted all mod cons, the maid service had failed to hoover the rug or empty the bathroom bin after the last guests but I think we will get over it!

Steak & salad for tea, the family ate well tonight.

Whie water tomorrow so an early night is in order.

Goodnight peeps xxxx
