been several years since we drove thru the Sequatchie Valley and it was as
pretty as I remember it, even though the grass was still dry from our drought. We arrived at Wooden’s to discover that many
others had the same idea as the parking lot was about full.
bottom floor was about what I expected but with less of the jarred items
(jellies, vegetables, etc) found in most tourist stores. They had plentry of apples and good looking
sweet potatoes though.
upstairs was devoted to craft type items ranging from quilts to birdhouses.
also had a pie shop and a café with a small buffet and this seemed to be where
most of the customers were located.
Wooden’s with apples, sweet potatoes, cider, and an apple pie.
An unpicked orchard across the street. They
annually pick about 4-5 million apples from their 100 acres along with pumpkins, squash, and sweet potatoes.
way home we stopped at Simonton’s Cheese House for some gourmet cheese then at
the Chestnut Hill Winery for some of Bev’s favorite Peach Wine.
evening, we drove northwest of downtown Crossville for supper at Vegas Steakhouse & Lounge which is a nice looking restaurant just south of I-40 on N. Main St. I enjoyed a nicely grilled piece of tuna
with salad and roasted potatoes ($14.95) but Bev didn’t care for her Excalibur Beef Tips over rice ($14.95). I would think a
steakhouse would do mediocre on the fish but great with tenderloin beef tips –
Saturday, we buttoned up the coach, said our good-byes, and headed back to Greenback in time to
watch West Virginia get slaughtered by Oklahoma, as expected.
no more trips planned, it’s time to put the coach to bed for the winter.
