Another day unfolds Oct 31..
Did Walk about in morning, took tow bar to Camping World next door, gonna take a few days to get part and fix, so will do more Nashville. Went to Opryland Hotel and walked inside for few hours. Absolutely amazing place, so huge all the Gardens, walkways, rivers, waterfalls, restaurants, all under one huge roof.

For supper went to "the Cock of the Walk" for amazing Catfish dinner, deep fried dill pickles, onion rings and fries, Huge servings (1 would have been enough) served family style using tin plates, and cups. Great meal.

Rainy Day, went to Opry mills (huge new Shopping mall) with new hardwood floors throughout, checked out The Aquarium Restaurant, an amazing restaurant that we were able to walk into and look at the huge tanks and many different fish (sharks, eels, sting rays etc.. and a diver in the tank try to catch some hostile fish), Bass Pro Shops, also Huge Gibson Guitar Shop, sidewalk music Monuments, but it was still a shopping mall. Later we drove about other none tourist areas of Nashville to feel the atmosphere.
