I’ve arrived in Nashville and have been welcomed like family. I’ve been on two awesome hikes over the past two days. The woods and the trails are just gorgeous.
We saw a butterfly that was missing a small section of its wing and we stopped to photograph it. It then proceeded to lead us on our walk for several minutes. It would fly ahead for fifteen or twenty feet and then land and wait and when we would catch up, it would again take flight and stop for us once more.
So many times it kept this routine that we felt we had a third hiker with us for a time. More magic was in store for us…we saw two owls! We even were able to observe them hunting. It was awesome.
You have to look harder for the next one.
We’ve driven around this cozy feeling city several times and through some truly gorgeous neighborhoods, never taking the same way twice so that I can see as much as possible.
I have visited the Parthenon – the life size replica of the original and it is beautiful as well.
While at the Parthenon, we stopped to watch some guys play a version of soccer where they were these inflatable bubbles around themselves. Pretty hilarious.
And just to keep my luck going on my vacations, I looked down at the clover patch in front of me and there was my lucky leaf from Nashville.
We have talked almost nonstop and will be in on a small road trip today to Chattenooga to visit some of the Sun Dance folks down there and spend the night so I don’t see that trend changing any time soon.
More in a day or so.
