Nashville Vacation 2018

We had four days in Nashville with Brad & Phylis (they were willing to put up with me again this year).
I didn't take a lot of photos. Connie did so I'll have to collect some from her.

May 15, Tuesday: We drove to Bowling Green, Kentucky and arrived in time to tour the Corvette museum. It was interesting, especially the display on the sink hole occurance in February 2014.

May 16, Wednesday: We drove to downtown Nashville and met Brad and Phylis at the Country Music Hall of Fame. We got our tickets, spent a few minutes in the museum and then had to catch the tour to Studio B. The guide played lot of music that had been recorded in the studio, and the guide did a good job of providing background, answering questions, and being entertaining.

Back at the Country Music Hall of Fame, we finished up the tour, more quickly than I expected. I thought they were a little short on some artists and a little long on others, but I'

Dinner at Puckett's Grocery and Resturant, then stopped at the part next to Fort Granger. But we didn't realize there was a better way to get to the fort.

May 17, Thursday: Belle Meade plantation in the morning. Lunch at Loveless Cafe, Tour Ryman Auditorium, in the PM and Fort Granger on the way home. Eat dinner at

A big hawk there on the property.

Loveless Resturant was right at the entrance to the Natchez Trace. It was on the agenda but we never actually did it. The Boyds spent two days driving on the Trace and maybe we weren't so enthusiastic.

May 18, Friday: Franklin battle ground. Lunch at dinner at Chuy's in the Grand Ole Opry,

May 19, Saturday: The Hermitage, Five Points Pizza, the Parthenon, Gaylord Opryland Hotel.

The Parthenon. I'd seen it twice before. but this was the first time I'd gone inside. I guess it was worth the $4.
I saw this statue across the field. I wasn't sure if it was women with funny hats or soldiers with helmets. I used my camera's zoom lens to know for sure.
