Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

Out To The Opry

Here’s Part 4 of our Southern Adventure from back in April. I still can’t believe it was a whole 2 months ago!  You can read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 if you’d like to get caught up.

The day after our adventure at Fort Campbell with my brother and his family, we all piled in his car and drove down to Nashville for a mini day-trip. Our first stop was a late lunch at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. The place is beautiful! We wandered through their massive conservatories and pointed out the “fishies” and “duckies” to my niece. Opryland reminds me a lot of the hotels on the Vegas Strip – practically a world unto itself with restaurants for every palette and plenty to see and do.

Then we headed down to the Grand Ole Opry – the highlight of our trip. On a Sunday afternoon the Opry was already closed up for the day and we hadn’t thought to book a tour. But I loved getting to wander the grounds of a place with so much history. J and I enjoy our country tunes and it was neat to see a venue that has played so heavy a role in the country music scene.

With the little niece in tow and a necessary nap-time on the horizon, we didn’t have time to visit downtown Nashville. J and I have agreed that it just means we have to check it out during a future trip to TN. We will be back and ready to explore some of the local honky-tonks!
