... and struggling with the internet. Finally, we decided to cancel the boat rental and try driving 30 mins into Bryson City to shop.

We spotted an article about an organic honey place in Bryson City and we set off to find it. Unfortunately, we found the shell of a building partly constructed - the place wasn't open yet!! We drove around for a few minutes and quickly concluded ...

Thao was terrified of the rope swing but finally ended up jumping off it. Mika and Matt both also mustered up the courage to jump. What a hoot!

Day 2: Tubing with Gator Tubes at Deep Creek. $3/tube

Gator Tubes is one of the first rental places u see on the road to Deep Creek. Run by a retired probation officer, they charmed us with their warm Southern hospitality. Lifejackets for the 2 little ones were an extra $5 each. They tied the tubes on top of our van and off we went!

It was a pretty long hike (10-15 min hike carrying our ...
