Time is ticking…We are on the move again. We got to spend some time in the city of country music.
Nashville is beautiful with music and country music stars all around the roads on the billboards.
We got to have dessert at the underwater dinning.
We got to see the grand ole opry. The stage that made country music huge.
Over all it was a lovely experience as we also got to the try the famous Nashville hot chicken at the pepperfire cafe.
Also our camp ground called yogi bear had so much to do it was amazing… they had… laser tag, blow up slides, forming splash…dive in..achery..and many more stuff for kids to do.
We are done with Nashville and off we go again hitting the road to Gatlingburg.
Yes..walking the streets of Beale all we saw are people performing and singing soul music. It was so good it got us moving while rolling down the streets.
We arrived and drove to the famous street called Beale street. It was packed with people. And lines and security to get on the street. And they don’t allow kids under 21yrs on that street after 10pm. That whole street is designated for music and drinking folks…as well as folks like me who does not really drink.
We did not visit the elvis Presley home as a tour. And the reason being we had not two people whom are both elvis Presley fans and they said the tour was not worth the $60 per person they charging. Also they said the tour was better 10yrs ago as this time they have packed up a lot of elvis items so not an interesting tour for the price they charging. So we did not take that tour. But our RV campground was right across the street from graceland so we did get to see elvis Presley house from afar.
Now we did visit the stax mesuem and that made us all fall in love with old soul music. It was definitely a tour worth taking and the price is right. It cost us $58 for all 6 of us to take that tour. Rich old soul music. Loved it.
After we visited the hotel where Dr. MARTIN LUTHER KING was shot. The Loraine hotel in Room 306. That was nice to see that mesuem.
And right across the street of the hotel was central BBQ…finger licking bbq ribs and wings…with tasty mac and cheese and beans that will knock you out. It was so tasty and priced right. Memphis food was the one for me and my crew. Marcus loved it so much he called it the food experience.
Memphis is awesome and really loved it.
Tomorrow we leave for Nashville..
Goodbye Memphis..you are an amazing city filled with music and good food.
RV exploration Continues..
Wow…what a state filled with so much culture and music.
From Pensacola we drove through a couple of states… and we decided to stay in new Orleans because (girls trip and food) but the rich culture over rides it all. So grateful we get to do this and do it as a family.
We walked for hours and hours around the famous french quarters. With music and people all around the streets especially bourbon street was jumping with music. But around night time it got too much for our kids so we left.
We got to eat at cafe du munde…I think that I was a bit disappointed. Its “fried ballfrot” like we will say in Ghana. Fried dough with powdered sugar. And seem like its owned by Asian people which is weird too. Lol…anyways we did take a picture and tried the friend dough…
We also got to see some street performers and the palm readers… and we got to tour the voodoo mesuem which was interesting on it’s own. Will share pictires.
We also got to eat gambo at the famous Melba. I hope I got the name right…lol…
We had some crawfish and some gambo and some bbq chicken
It was really just ok. Overall food in new Orleans is ok for me and my family…
Now the highlight of our trip is our drive to the whitney Plantation…now that is something new as we have visited mesuems and we have also tour places telling the story from the masters perspective…with this plantation was telling stories from the slaves eyes and we got to see where they sleep and work. Wow…
This place is been open only for 3yrs now and it’s truly an amazing experience if you are in new Orleans to do. Its suppose to be the only one that tells the slaves stories. Am so grateful for this particular experience.
We are leaving tomorrow…going to Memphis
Tennessee… so we say thanking you to new Orleans for hosting us .
RV exploration Continues…
What a lovely place to call home for 1 week. So beautiful right on the beach is the Pensacola RV beach resort.
And the boardwalk and the people and the relaxing feel of this beach on the peninsula is sure to make you want to stay more than the 7 days we booked for.
With our RV tour we are visit to colleges for our 2 older kids…and so far we are on it.
In Pensacola we got to visit their homeschool DVD program abeka which has a school in Pensacola. We met their teachers who our kids have watched on their homeschool DVD program for many grades.
The teachers are so lovely and we got to sit in the classrooms where the videos are made with students. Such an amazing experience to see all unfolds. Our girls got to ask their teachers some personal questions. They met their favorite math teacher Mr. Howe.
Really truly a great experience.
We also got to create memories with marcus friend Robert’s parents who are super cool and have a beautiful beach house that was right by our RV resort.
We had some tasty friend fish and lots of laughs and memories at their home. Thank you for hosting us.
We also got to enjoy some soul food at the famous Dwarf chicken…and just typing this makes me want to run there now and eat some tasty homemade from the soul with love collard greens and fried chicken. Our friend grandmother started the chicken stand but now managed by her niece who is super cool.
Am telling you if you are in Pensacola just find the dwarf chicken and stop by for some soul food.
Here are a few pictures of our Pensacola experience.
