Almost Heaven South Via Google Earth

You've seen three of my five or six posts about smoked sausage and I figured you might want a break.

Betsy over at Joyful Reflections recently posted a Google Earth shot of a place they stayed during one of their trips and I loved the idea of doing it. I just copied the google shots and pasted in Word, then imported to my blog as I normally would any picture.  Please let me know if there is a better way.

I've often mentioned being in the woods and having a pasture across the road so here are a series of shots showing our Almost Heaven South.  Each shot gets further away, but our place stays in the middle and can be identified by the pasture.  Just click on each one to blow it up.

The first shot is a decent close up with the house in the center and woods on three sides, my garden plot to the left of the house (beside the road) and our dock down to the right with the green roof.  That dark spot in the middle of the driveway is the rock that shows up in some of my photos.

The next shot is further away and shows the houses across the road as well as more of the pasture (it's actually a pretty steep hill).  You can see what a great little secluded place our dock is in.

Even farther away and just keep an eye on the pasture to see where we are.

Still further away with a view of Tellico Lake.  There's more development across the lake than on our side.  The subdivision where Bev's sister lives is directly south of us - lower left corner of the same colored picture we're in.

I hope you've enjoyed your little fly over of Almost Heaven South and perhaps you can see why I call it that.  Now that you know where I live, if you have any devious activities planned - come well armed, because I am. :-)

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. I've had the distinct pleasure of visiting Almost Heaven South in person and it's name is perfect. You've got a great place on the lake Larry.

    I couldn't help but smile about your last sentence. I don't think anyone but a fool would mess with you after that warning. Hugs to Bev.

  2. I personally enjoyed the little fly over tour! Well shoot, after that last statement I guess I won't stalk you. :-)

  3. I love the aerial tour of your home! What a beautiful place it must be. All we have is stupid rocks around us! Oh, yea, we live in the desert what would you expect? lol
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I loved this! I feel like I got to know you a little better by this virtual trip to you home!

  5. That last sentence was for Bev as she worries about who may be reading my blog.

  6. I really enjoyed the aerial views of Almost Heaven South. It looks like a wonderful place, Larry. I'm sure you enjoy every inch of it. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  7. Neat, Larry. I am glad to see a little more of your area.. I could see the Tellico Lake from the lookout tower on the top of the foothills parkway.... Neat!!!!

    Thanks for sharing.. That is neat that you have woods on 3 sides and then also can enjoy the water... Best of all worlds!!!

  8. What a great spot, Larry; you and Bev done good. Love the water access but especially that garden area.. man could I plant some veggies there. PS: by the way need any heirloom tomato or bean seeds?

  9. What a treat. These are fantastic views and of course I see why you call it almost Heaven. One of these days you should stop at my other, other blog which has photos of where I live. It too is pretty, but I don't quite call it heaven.

    Take it easy and thanks for checking in on sandwich. Keri

  10. Funny, I was looking for your house Wednesday evening as we flew in from Phoenix via Houston. I was trying to follow the water but lost my bearings as to which cove was yours.

  11. I know what you mean about almost heaven! I live on a country acreage, altho not on a lake . . . and it is our little piece of heaven. My daughter and her husband live in Knoxville and have a lake home up on a big lake near Tazwell. Do you know the area? Lovely, lovely! I used to live in Maryville, just south of K-town. Now following you too, Larry.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
