A July 2004 trip

In addition we had great fun at the marina picnic where we had dinner for that included a pontoon tour of the lake. We rented a pontoon for 2 hours to tour on our own another day and saw a small sailboat regatta -- all driven by remote controls - big toys for big boys. Everyone was waving and having a great time. In fact, someone heading for the "regatta" alerted us to the fact that the "regatta" was about to begin and we followed him down.
While there we went to two plays at the Cumberland County Playhouse. One was Beauty and the Beast and it was wonderful for adults and children. The music was wonderful as was the acting. The other was Smoke on the Mountain, and it was very funny. It left one in a wonderful, happy, upbeat, spiritual mood while not being stuffy at all. Since it centered on a church and special singing night, I was afraid it would be stuffy and self-righteous. It was nothing of the sort! It poked a bit of fun at self-righteousness, promoted tolerance and a good feeling. All that and music that was some of that old fashioned gospel and was great! I would recommend both the plays to anyone.
Check out the plays at the Cumberland County Playhouse and make your reservations. There were 3 plays going on when we were there and we made it to only 2 of the 3 and if the other was similar, we missed out!
