We were on the road for two days and I have to tell you that once we left the mountains of Vermont and got on the highway in New York, it was not the scenic drive I was hoping for. It was long and boring, and FLAT. So flat….until we got into Kentucky and there was finally some hills again. We drove along Lake Erie for hundreds of miles, and never got a glimpse of the lake. We stopped in New York to drop off my friend’s elderly mother at her sister’s on the first day, and then drove for a couple more hours and stopped in Erie, Pennsylvania and spent the night at a very nice Comfort Inn. From the time I left my house in NH until the time we crashed in that room was about 12 hours.
The next day we were on the road for about 10 hours, Ohio was long and boring, with just the excitement of three cities in there (the cities were the only thing to see, everything else was just green trees or fields), and let me just say thank goodness my friend was willing to do the driving (and is a great driver) because I am not a city person, not one bit. We arrived in Nashville around 6pm our time, which turned out to be 5pm here (we didn’t realize there was a time change until we found out on the way down). I had intended to share more photos from the road, but there just wasn’t a lot of interesting things to share!
We were tired but had a light supper in the lounge here at the Sheraton Music City Hotel, walked around a bit, and called it a night. Tuesday morning we went to see downtown Nashville and the Country Music Hall of Fame, which was fun, other than getting caught in a thunderstorm and downpours and having to duck inside stores to wait out the rain!
We had an early supper, and after that, we met our first fellow BlogPawsers, Nitro and his Mom from Deaf Dogs Rock. What a sweetie he is! Today we have a little more sightseeing planned and I’m sure we’re going to see a lot more bloggers and their pets arriving here at the hotel….can’t wait!
