Nashville Skyline

Another nicely uneventful trip along the interstate, this time in the opposite direction as we were headed back to Nashville in the bright but very chilly sunshine. Still couldn’t persuade the husband to stop at Dude Ranch for me to find out exactly what goes on there. Bought a bucket of coffee from McDonald’s which kept me going for most of the journey. Which reminds me, we’re staying at the Maxwell House Hotel tonight, which is the original home of the coffee of the same name, so I’m pleased to say that this is one of those very rare hotels where you don’t get forced into drinking Starbucks.

So another lightning visit into Nashville, this time into the city centre itself which is really very nice and welcoming. There’s a lot of construction going on, lots of investment into this city’s future which seems to be a marked contrast to Memphis and its run-down ruins. Of course it has its own TV drama series now which is making it a popular place to be. In fact they have closed off one of the main bars in the city today so they can film for the show. So we spent most of our time in another bar, listening to a great country band knocking out a lot of the classics. Well we assume they were anyway. I recognised one song. Which is one more than the husband. Oh, and on the subject of music, whereas two days ago he was refusing to listen to Elvis Radio in the car, now we have been to Graceland he can’t get enough of the guy so we have been listening to it for most of today’s journey. The power of the King.

The weather has gone markedly colder today, although we have been half expecting a bit of snow and that hasn’t happened yet. Lovely clear blue skies but chuffing chilly. So as long as we can get to our cabin in the woods tomorrow we should be in for several lovely days and nights of being cosied up together around the fire. I love Nashville but I kind of want today to hurry up and finish so we can get on our way!
