Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August. 2006
On the road at 8:15am (to avoid possible rain showers, that never happened) for a nice leisurely drive thru some scenic Tennessee back country. We drove thru Savannah and Waynesboro on very good roads and little traffic.
About 10:30 am we entered the Natchez Trace Parkway for an even more beautiful 97 mile drive to Nashville. The Natchez Trace is a winding two lane beautifully groomed Parkway, no commercial vehicles allowed with a speed limit of 50 mph (80kph) and is also a Bike route to be shared with bicycles. Numerous picnic areas, points of interest, campgrounds and hiking trails and at this time of year the beautiful bright pink and white dogwoods are in bloom making for some colourful scenery. The parkway is 444 miles long from Natchez Mississippi to just south of Nashville.
We arrived at Two Rivers Campground (on Music Valley Drive, where else?) about 1:30pm with the sun shining. We set up here , did a walkabout chatted with a few neighbours ( from Thunder Bay, Elmira and Huntsville Ontario). This is about our 4th visit to Nashville and being right on our route we thought we would stop for a couple of nights (I was craving some good catfish!) Next to the campground is Camping World then "the Cock of the Walk" where we went again for a delightful feast of catfish, chicken, shrimp, fries, hushpuppies, coleslaw and cornbread. That craving satisfied, we walked back home with leftovers for a later date, chatted with some neighbours then watch a bit of tv. Still 70f. (21c)
