Day 2 Part 2 Riley’s Romp in Nashville

Crazy Town

So only Travis would take all 45 feet of us into downtown Nashville and find a parking spot for $5!  We took up 4 and a half spots.  The parking lot was empty when we got there. By the time we got back we were almost blocked in.

IMG_1628First mission was to find an outdoor eating establishment that Riley could on the patio under the table.  Score! At the Acme Feed & Seed, food was good but a little to fru fru for me.

We could have stayed there all evening and just people watched but we had to see some sights.

Riley was in sensory overload!  He was very good and allowed many people and kids to pet him. To most he just brought on big smiles.  We walked around and took in some of the sites and sounds.

He doesn’t like to walk over grates very much and is also not a big fan of walking down open stairs.

The Peddle Tavern was one of the more interesting bars we saw.  People sit around a moving bar that the bar tender stands in the middle and steers.  It is peddle power and good times getting around Nashville.

But the the funniest thing was…We came across this guy sitting in a kiddie pool filled with sand playing music on a the corner with his buddy.


All smiles around Nashville. Gotta get to Memphis tonight.  Time to hit the road.

Day 2 Nashville Bound

Day 1 totals…

Yesterday evening we found an ok hotel outside of Roanoke, VA that took Dogs.  Rolled in there after 11, apparently the dogs across the hall heard us coming and started barking (sorry #139 if I woke you).

Traveling with Riley is great! He is such a trooper.

After our free breakfast we were on the road around 9.  I drove! Woo hoo! My palms were sweaty and I was a bit nervous.  But I was just Highway (81) driving so within 1/2 hour I was more comfortable.  I only did about 150 miles but hey it’s a good start

Not an exciting travel day yet, but I am looking forward to Nashville.

I used to travel there for work (about 13 years ago) and loved the town.  I even met a singing Cowboy there, he had hopes of making it big.  His song was Rose Colored Glasses. Lost track of him but never did see his name come up in lights either.

I have a feeling Nashville has changed a lot since I was there last.Check in tomorrow I will let you know how it was.
