Chattanooga, TN - A Delivery and Great Day Trip!

When we first moved to Atlanta from Wisconsin over 25 years ago, we drove through Chattanooga, TN, often twice a year - once to return to Wisconsin for the Christmas holidays with family (a 14 plus hour drive) and often to meet my sister in Nashville to celebrate our March birthdays.  We always enjoyed driving through this wonderfully picturesque river and mountain city but seldom spent much time.   It's probably been 10 years since we've made this trek. Then, last week, I sold a bergere chair and ottoman to a new client living in the Chattanooga area.  I figured that is was almost as easy to deliver the piece as to package and ship it and, since the distance is only about two hours away, I felt I could do this quite easily in my trusty van.  I offered to personally deliver the piece and my sweet husband agreed to accompany me - we planned it as a nice day trip!

Today we made out trip in glorious, even a little warmer than usual, spring weather.  I had contacted a neighborhood friend who was a little more familiar with the area and she had recommended visiting the "Bluff View Art District" - an up and coming area with artist studios, bed and breakfasts (B&B), restaurants and views of the river and bridges.  We had a plan!

I took a series of photos and wished I had brought my "good camera" - the scenery and attractions were that special.  Here are some of the images and a STRONG recommendation to anyone who can to visit this lovely spot - we plan to go back and stay at one of the quaint B&B's in the area - hopefully by fall!
