Chattanooga II

Top of Rock City

We have had a great time the past couple of days!  On Wednesday we spent the morning driving around the outside of Chatty and went to an enormous used book store.  In the afternoon we went to Rock City, which was a lot more fun that I had imagined.  The trails were fun and the views were spectacular!  For anyone going, however, I would suggest avoiding Fantastic Caverns, I looks like an inverse Disney universe created by and for people tripping on drugs!  It was full of painted gnomes being lit up by blacklights.

Anyways we spent more of the afternoon at Coolidge Park on the river.  It was a beautiful evening and they had some event going on so there were a lot of people hanging out and throwing discs.  That night we ate at a great little pub called the Pickle Barrel.  We loved it and now refer to it as the Seitz bar because I am pretty sure my friend Chris would have loved the place!  The fried pickles are amazing!

Yesterday we had breakfast at the only restaraunt in downtown that served breakfast, Blue Plate.  When we arrived we were the only ones in the house and I am pretty sure we were served by the owner.  So we had a nice quiet breakfast, first class service, and an excellent view of the river!  Oh yeah, and the food was great!  I had an omelet with cheese, avacado, and Maytag blue cheese (which was much stronger than I had imagined!).

Today is our last day in Chatty.  We plan on going to another coffee shop and a few more book stores we haven’t visited yet.  Then we are going to visit the Hunter Museum of Art and play the afternoon by ear.
