Home for the Holidays, Day 26 - Goodlettsville and Nashville, Tennessee

We took a short walk this morning because A) it was cold B) it was loud (train on one side, highway on the other) and C) there wasn’t much grass, mostly just gravel. (The correct answer is D) all of the above). The people at this park are quite friendly but I think if I was choosing again I would look for a different location.

After the rest of the morning routine I gave Alfie a bath and he took it like a champ., restored to his fluffy self after three weeks of puddles and rain and rolling on suspicious spots of grass.

Christian woke up around 9 and got some work done. I made chicken liver paté, then we packed up to head into Nashville for some exploring.

Our first stop was Fido, a coffee shop/restaurant that had been converted from an old pet store. They had their wifi turned off during the lunch rush, but I enjoyed my burger nonetheless. Then we went across the street to a bookstore (Bookman Bookwoman) that was perfect - paperback books three deep on the shelf, alcoves and hidey holes, gorgeous old vintage bindings, little chaises scattered throughout for flipping through potential purchases… they got me! I got three books that are each the start of a different Anne McCaffrey series YAY and one about dog training.

We went to Centennial Park and practiced walking with a slack leash for Alfie (quite challenging given that a man was feeding squirrels!).

Then we went over to a dog park down the road and Alfie had a blast running and sniffing and chasing his new friends. There was a border collie there that kept fetching things to try to get his owners to throw, including a log about 4 feet long.

We went to Whole Foods next to re-stock groceries before coming back to the RV. Christian made Tom Kha Gai (Thai coconut soup) and we watched a couple of episodes of FRIENDS. He turned in for bed early while I read one of my new books before bed.
