Our move to Tennessee - Part 2

After crossing the Tennessee River, we were very near our new home. We drove back roads for what seemed like forever (but Mum says it really wasn't, we were just excited!).

This road is on the way to our lane.

Here we are getting closer to our lane.'s our lane!

We finally got to our new home at about 4:30. Mum had hired some extra guys to help unload the truck because my Uncle's brother in-law had to be at work the next day and they needed to drive back that night.

They had the truck unloaded in just a couple of hours. The guys stayed and put together our bed and our big desk, helped Mum rearrange things a little. And store some items upstairs in our loft.

The cabin is pretty small compared to what we are used to, but we plan to spend lots more time outdoors than in when we can! The cabin is on 8 acres of open land with some pasture, and surrounded by 100 acres for hiking. Hmmm...wonder if Mum should look into updated and current life insurance rates, BOL!!!

Oh and one of the best parts is we found out there have been trails carved out so there will be lots to explore.

Here's a view from our back porch....

And here's a view from our front porch! Yep, those are horses in the pasture...rescued horses that now have a new home, just like us!

We've spent a lot of time the last few days getting things inside the cabin organized. Mum, Gracie and I have walked around a lot, since we don't have a fenced area yet. We explored the open areas and have a nice place picked out for the agility field.

There are other cabins on the property too, which is nice, so we don't have to be out here all alone. And we met our neighbors, they are super great!

One of our neighbors is Roxie! She has full run of the land and is really nice. We got to play with Roxie in the dog run that's on the property the other day. It's really cool, and has a real, authentic log cabin as a play house, can you believe that!

Here are a couple of pix of us in the dog run.

Here's the little log cabin doggie door, BOL!!!

We think there are treats in there!

And here we are meeting Roxie! Gracie and I both are crazy about her!

Well that's it for now. Mum's gotta concentrate on work for the next day or so...and the weather has turned a bit cold. But we'll have lots and lots more to share!
