Yesterday morning we got up early, ate, and drove around Nashville to Radnor Lake. It's off Granny White Pike. We walked the Lake trail from the main parking lot by the office around on the Lake Trail and then the old road that is now closed. It took us a little less than 2 hours, and I was exhausted by the end, but I MADE IT! It was a beautiful walk...always has been. We saw chipmunk, squirrel, geese (one goose had 8 eggs , and 4 or so had hatched...below the dam, but when we got there there was one egg left, no babies, and no goose...just several snakes...ugh!), lots of warblers, cardinals, woodpeckers, and a good look at a bared owl. We too the first photo when we got back to the car.I was really tired by this time.
These are multiple looks at Radnor...and at the end of the blog there are movies which include the beautiful songs of some of the birds.
After we walked we went to the Elliston Place Soda Shop for lunch and a soda. This place has been in operation forever, and it was one of our hangouts when we lived here.
The Elliston Place Soda Shop is on Elliston Place near Music Row. This is looking up, or west, on Elliston Place.
Here is the Gold Rush where we went on our first date...after we listened to Lenny Breau at Mississippi Whiskers. Lenny is dead, and Whiskers is no more.Today we rest and go to Kingston Springs were we lived...see ya!
