Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

A Day AT The Grand Ole Opry

Here we are making a turn into the Grand Ole Opry complex

Speed Limit 24????? Who came up with that?


Outside of the building entrance

We signed up for the tour of the Grand Ole Opry which explained how it all started.
Further along the tour we came to the area where the Opry members get their mail. There area 60 regular members that perform at the Opry.


Below are some of the dressing rooms, most area shared by various performers.




Here are two of the top performers now!

After taking the tour of the Opry, we crossed the parking lot to the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.
The roof on the center of the complex is all glass and the center looks like something out of Disney.
There are boat rides that circle through the gardens.


Nice fountain!
The plants were unbelievable, there were flowers everywhere
More plants

Flowers growing from the sides of the palm trees.
Wedding chapel area
Two short videos of the complex

What we did was rent from Cruise America for a week or two. Try it with the family to see if they like it.
