Nashville Sans Studies
This is more than a little bit overdue, but time got away from me! After Victoria and I returned to Nashville from our adventures in Kentucky in May, we had nearly a week before we returned to our respective homes. We took advantage of this and explored Nashville!
On the evening that we got back from Kentucky, Victoria and I ventured over to the recently re-opened Opry Mills mall. Victoria hadn’t been there yet, so we wandered around for a bit and then went to see a movie. The next day we woke up at a very respectable 9 am and drove to Cumberland Park–a newly installed park on the edge of the Cumberland River. Even though it was designed for younger children and families, we had fun just relaxing and reading and enjoying the scenery. Later that day we stopped by Harris Teeter to buy lunch for the next day’s adventures and then went to Centennial Park to do some more reading and lounging in the sun.
The next day, we went to the Adventure Science Center, which is just a few minutes drive away from Vanderbilt. We spent the day wandering around, and, you know, learning some stuff about science. We were probably the oldest people there (besides chaperones for school groups, that is.) but we had fun anyways!
After a long semester of studies, it was great to just hang out in Nashville–relaxing and taking advantage of just a few of the great things that Nashville has to offer.
