One of the maybe, not so popular, places we visited in Nashville was the Upper Room Chapel. The tour included a lovely taped talk in the main chapel and off to the side is a small chapel for prayer and reflection. Outside is a beautiful agape garden....which we were all about b/c there were no gardens to be seen in WI at this time.

Next we headed to the Tennessee Centennial park where we viewed the Parthenon.
this wall depicts the history of Tennessee, it breaks apart when the civil war appears
There's a tribute to WWI
These are the bell towers, 95 of them because there are 95 counties in TN. The bells play music every hour.
Every state has a bell tower also.,
The state capitol lays at the end of the park.
More to come.......................
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, so far our weather has been perfect, although it looks like we might get some rain later. I hope it hold out until after the cook out at my friends. I'm still kinda tired after Thursday's treatment. Our grandson was here Saturday night, all day Sunday, and Sunday night, and will be here most of today, so I couldn't rest as much as I'd like. He's pretty happy to spend lots of time on the computer and TV so is not very hard to take care of...but....and NO I can not say no to him.
