We're up early and have the complimentary breakfast provided, and people watch as it is full of NRA participants.
We head down to the Johnny Cash Museum, snapping on the way, most people are not out yet.
The sky was full of cotton wool clouds.
Not sure if he is an early bird or just hasn't gone home yet.
I'll do a detailed post on the museum in the future.
We're still trying to figure out why we had never noticed this bridge before!
We had been to the Country Music Hall of Fame in the early '90s, I need to check our photos. Lots more photos to come!!!
We decided on Joe's Crab Shack for lunch, a definite favourite of both of us!! Our last crab fix was in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago.
We figure we can then have dinner up our way.
After lunch we split up, John goes back to the hotel and I wander around. I had planned on seeing the Walk of Fame but it is under renovation.
Across the street from the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Street is closed for NRA, check out this guy's shirt.
I checked out some churches.

I went to the museum, $12 to enter and no photos. I found a new sculptor that I really liked, John Rogers. I also liked the photography of Tina Barney, check out her website.
We had been to the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth a week ago and really enjoyed it.
So we headed to their location in Nashville.
We have also been to Nashville bars many times, including this day and the day before.
We sat down and I ordered a glass of wine, the server asks for ID.
I didn't even bring my purse. No problem, my husband said he'd run back to the hotel and get my ID.
He leaves and the server then says, where are we from? I say Canada and she says oh then we need our passports as ID as our "state" ID would not be acceptable.
With that I
As world travelers, our passports are always in the hotel safe. We would never take them out with us, copies maybe, depending on the country. Plus we have never been asked for passport as ID in the United States.
Never mind the fact that we have never been asked for ID in Nashville.
We went to another place for dinner and were not asked for any IDs.
