Opryland Hotel, Nashville
July 28, 2005
One of Rod's favorite things is the buffet breakfast at the Opryland Hotel. We started the morning with the nice breakfast and spent a good bit of time walking around through the wonderful gardens.
We thought Ashleigh and Jordan might enjoy pictures of the wonderful sand sculptures that were on display in the gardens of Opryland. Grandma Brenda poses with an elaborate sand castle.
Granddad Rod with the opposite side of the castle.
This castle took a lot of detailed sand work and two tons of sand to complete.
As we continued on around the garden we encountered this amazing sea turtle with sea fans and coral.
Continuing around the coral reef, we find a fish in more coral beyond the brain coral heads. There is even part of a large star.
The enclosed gardens, totalling probably nearly 10 acres, are always a delight.
We followed around a guy who was watering some of the plants, and the water droplets added to the beauty of the blooms.
I always enjoy the synchronized fountains. We watched as they played God Bless America with synchronized motion of the elements of the fountain.
