Chillin’ in Music City

Nashville Postcard

Seven Points COE is exactly what Don and I needed after spending 4 1/2 months in a noisy, overcrowded Jellystone RV Park. The woods, the lake, the solitude has been a soothing balm to us, allowing us to relax and decompress.

Seven Points is a small (60 sites) rustic campground situated on one of Tennessee’s premier bass fishing lakes. The sites are paved, roomy, mostly level, with plenty of natural privacy screening in between. Each site has a large defined patio area with cement tables, fire pits and lantern posts. All sites are electric and water only but the park offers a well tended shower house and a dump station. The Verizon signal is acceptable when using a booster but the majority of campsites are too wooded to allow for satellite TV. However, we do have good reception of local channels using our regular TV antenna.

Our site. Most sites are off water and wooded like ours.

Did I mention how quiet it is? Even on Summer’s last big holiday weekend, the silence is palpable. Only the occasional trill of a bird cuts through.

Because of the oppressive heat and humidity, and it being a holiday weekend, we opted not to visit a few of the attractions we had planned to see on this trip to Nashville. The Hermitage, Opryland Hotel, and Centennial Park will need to wait. No big deal as Nashville is our go to spot on our way to and from our family in Bloomington, Indiana.

There is one outing we do make it a point to do each and every time we pass through. It’s a given, being married to a musician that we will be drinking our way up and down Broadway Street, hitting all of the honky tonks that feature live entertainment.

We also discovered a little eatery on a downtown side street that will be our “go to” restaurant from now on whenever we pass through. Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant on the corner of Church and Fifth. Good food, prompt and friendly service, reasonable prices, all in a cool atmosphere, you can’t ask for better than that. Don had the Memphis-style Que with baked beans, a corn cake and sweet potato fries while I dined on a fried green tomato and egg BLT with hand-dipped onion rings. We sampled each others and both agreed everything was delicious.

Another necessary stop was the Boot Barn. We have a special little girl in our lives who will soon be celebrating her 8th birthday and high on her wish list is a brand new pair of Cowgirl boots. I think she’s going to be tickled pink when she opens the present from us.

Our granddaughter Gabby loves all things pink. Do you think she'll like these?

Our next stop…..Sweet Home Alabama. Here’s lookin’ at y’all…..
