Traveling to Nashville

Hello Friends.
The drive to Nashville was uneventful. It was great to talk and catch up. It makes the miles go by quickly. I stitched a little. Yea!



If there is a Russell Stover outlet stitchers always stop. Fortified with chocolate we made the rest of the drive.
Yesterday after setting up the room. Robin and I headed out to visit a couple of sights.



Look at the cool bike rental racks. The bikes even have baskets.
We visited the Tennessee State Museum.



This sweet little sampler was on display. We came across another very cool thing but that is going to be a whole different blog post when I get home and can attach some links.
Then we headed to Broadway.



We stopped here for lunch.



This little place called Diana's that is a soda shop that has been there since 1926.



I love the woodwork.



So of course we had to have lunch.



This was mine. The Diana sundae.
Then we walked down the street and went into Hatch Printing.



They do all these fabulous show posters.



Very cool!
So today is the trade show. The excitement is growing!



Talk to you soon!

Hugs

Thanks for the tour of things in Nashville. We often fly into Nashville on our way south. You have given me a few new places to visit when we have time to spare. We tend just to go to Franklin(a very fun town) just south on Rt. 65.

Oh how lucky you are to be visiting Nashville and sharing the trip with friends! I enjoyed your tour around town. The soda shop reminds me very much of one that we always used to visit on our annual trip to Florida. I used to have a soda called a Pink Elephant.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of your pics from Market.

A sundae is one of my favourites desserts and that one looked scrumptious. This trip is going to be hard on your wallet and waist.

Myra said...

It looks like you had a great time and saw lots of neat things. That sundae is something!
