Day 2 of our Honeymoon began at 9:00 a.m., when the sun and M’s gentle nudging woke me up. We took another 30 minutes to get up and get moving – it was no nice to just lounge in bed, watch some morning talk shows, and hang out.
We headed into Gatlinburg to find breakfast. I was eager to try out the Pancake Pantry. All the reviews I read said that it was yummy. When we arrived downtown the line for Pancake Pantry was half way down the block. I told M that we could just hit Mickey D’s for a quick bite, but he insisted that he didn’t mind waiting in line if it was what I wanted. Our wait in line was 3 minutes, as the host found us a small table near the kitchen. I had a stack of yummy buttermilk pancakes, and M had pancakes with eggs and sausages.
After breakfast, we hit up the Ripley’s Aquarium. It was amazing to see all of the various fish and other sea life. The coolest part was watching the dive show at the Ray tank….
Following the Aquarium, we did a little shopping in the various shops along the strip. Since we didn’t see anything we just had to have, we went to the Ripley’s Haunted House. I screamed the entire time, and M was good enough to hold me so I did not bolt away.
The rest of the day was spent walking, sight seeing, and pursuing the shops. We also rode the Ripley’s Motion Theater. It was a blast – except for the kid who kept screaming in M’s ear. We had supper at a quaint Italian restaurant. Then came back to the cabin to watch t.v. and cuddle.
Up next, more Ripley’s fun and ……
