Why It's Called Music City
Not much happening today besides another great breakfast. After that it
was pretty much expressway home with only a couple of stops.
Start the day with a super breakfast & a touch of
the Trace; End it with a night at the Opry; Put a little honky tonkin'
in between and you've got yourself a darned nice Nashville day.
It didn't take too long to get to Nashville so I had time for a museum
before getting in line for the early show at the Bluebird.
At the last minute, I decided to take the long way to Nashville. I left Ohio on a ferry
and ended the day in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, near the
Jefferson Davis Monument. Nashville's tomorrow.
Not long ago, I was planning a drive to Charleston, West Virginia, for
this weekend. It's a state capital that is fairly close but in which I've
hardly spent any time at all. And there is no shortage of interesting
roads in West Virginia. However, Charleston's latitude, and therefore its
weather, isn't much different than Cincinnati's. As the date got closer
and I realized that it would be very very cold, I switched my target to
Nashville. It will still be cold and it might be wet but it will be warm
inside the Honky Tonks.
