Just some random photos to unload from the camera.
We recently saw this little guy scouring our Mums for prey:
Spent the weekend in Tennessee. Stopped by a BBQ/country music festival in Nashville. Got myself some Bayou Billy's homebrew soda. Love their tagline: "Put Some South In Your Mouth":
You're supposed to keep the mug for lifetime $1 refills. Sandra particularly liked how I carried mine around:
Spent Sunday at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens just outside of Nashville. Amazing place; a shame that I didn't have a better camera, lens, and -- well -- skill to capture it all.
The main mansion was beautiful as well, however, photography wasn't allowed. The backstory is that it was once owned by one of the early investors in Maxwell House Coffee (The Cheek family). There's a whole section of the garden, the sculpture trail, that we didn't do...maybe next time. Also, there's supposed to be a Dale Chihuly exhibit next year if you're planning on making a trip to Tennessee!
If you're ever in Tennessee, don't pass up the chance to stop by Cheekwood. Bring some comfortable hiking/walking shoes, a bottle of water, a nice camera, and some time. Oh, and finally: where did this guy come from?
