We left Cades Cove today and drove to the picnic area at Metcalfe Bottoms – where we parked the RV and had eggs and bacon by the river. Then the girls all played in the shallow river for a few hours before we had lunch and made our way back closer to the highway for the night. Kaya had a lot of fun catching the little fish in the river, and Maggie and Laney loved to jump off the rocks. I sat in the shade with Orly as I am not yet river worthy, but it was really fun watching them play. Apparently the thing to do is bring inner tubes to float, but we missed that memo.
