Ok.. Well been busy.. Driving, visiting, etc.. So here goes....

Stopped at the Natural Bridge in Virginia. Pretty cool natural bridge. Was purchased by Thomas Jefferson after George Washington surveyed it.. It is awesome!!



And you can tell, we all enjoyed it..



Then off to the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, NC. America's largest private home. Something like 177 thousand square feet. Could not take photos inside but what do you think of this?


So Catherine told Michael we were moving here so..



From there, off to Nashville, TN. Stopped to see one of my best buddies.. Dean Beach. He has a great family there and its amazing we have not seen each other in 23 years. But picked up where we left off. He let us park on his lawn so will be a great green patch soon there..


While there, hit the Jack Daniels Distillery. Cool place. Our tour guide had been there for 31 years and told us each employee gets a quart each month. Nice, since it is a dry county..




We also stopped by Andrew Jackson's home. About a half mile from my buddy's house. Again, could not take many photos inside but cool to see how our 7th president of the US lived.




Today, traveling to Memphis, stopped by the Casey Jones Museum. I think the signage was better than the museum but Catherine liked the food there.. Good ol' down home southern cookin'' chicken and noodles, collard greens, fried chicken, etc...




So... tomorrow.... GRACELAND!!! Will try to get Elvis' autograph if he is there...

See ya!

Very Nice!
All,

You guys have seen some cool places. Cathrine, are you keeping a travel log or diary writing down your experiences and comments for Michael? We really look forward to the time when we can do something like this. Stay safe on your journey home!

Mary and Jeff
