Today we have more scenes from the road trip. We’ve shown you day one and part of day two. Today we have days two and three. There was a lot to see along the way, many well known places. Of course, the start of Tennessee means the welcome station along the highway. It is not real exciting but it is better than the one in Kentucky.
On day two we continued through Tennessee and found this mural on a donut shop. We think it is a really nice mural from East Nashville.
Anyone going to Nashville needs to see the Grand Ole Opry, and that includes hounds. The giant guitars are impressive, but both of us were much more interested in all the squirrels running around. They seem to find lots of food around the attractions and they are not scared to be close to humans or to us. Mom would not let us sit on our own at the first guitar because we were so focused on those naughty squirrels.
At the second guitar we were still squirrel brained but Mom felt we would sit and not run for a few seconds while she took a shot of us. I think we look nice sitting with this guitar.
The extensive sightseeing on day two meant that we got into Georgia in the dark. We were all pretty tired out as you can see by Madison starting to yawn.
Since the drive from our hotel in Georgia to Orlando is not as long as the drive the other two days, we started out a bit later. Our first gas stop had a dog park. Mom took a look at it and said there is no way she would let us off leash there, but we think the sign is so cute and the idea isn’t all that bad.
Our stop in Plains, Georgia was not planned but we thought it would be a fun place to see. If you don’t know it is the home of Jimmy Carter, the 39th President.
We found the campaign headquarters, and the little town of Plains is where the Christmas peanuts are found.
Next to the headquarters is a sign with a lot of information on Jimmy Carter.
We headed out to the ranch to see what that is all about. There is a lot of really old stuff out there. There were no signs saying no dogs, so we did some walking around. There were goats and mules but we stayed clear of them.
There are not as many interesting things at the farm as we expected. This old gas station is on one side of the farm. It didn’t have any info signs so we don’t know anything about it but we took a photo anyway.
We like this old shed type building. There are several other larger ones that are used for the animals but Mom says we need to stay away so we don’t disturb the animals. If nothing else, the farm is a good stop to take a bit of a walk and stretch your legs and they also have human bathrooms.
Finally, later in the third day we reached Florida! Just a few hours drive and we will hit Orlando to get our FastCAT fun started. We did see several other dogs on their way to the Invitational taking photos here as well.
