HI Delilah, I’m Melissa! Clawdeen arrived at my house near Nashville, Tennessee on her way home to you.
She was kind of late getting in, so she settled in to admire my cross-stitch and meet the pet rats.
This is Ane saying, “Hello.”
The next morning we had donuts. Clawdeen wanted the one that looked like a flower.
Then we went to see Ancient Greece in Nashville, Tennessee!
The duck pond was being cleaned up so we couldn’t see the ducks, but we did have fun inside. We saw how the Parthenon came to be built in Nashville for an Exposition in 1897, more than a hundred years ago! It is now an art museum.
Clawdeen liked looking at the fans and there was a purse you could customize with your name. She thought that would be a good idea for when she starts her fashion business.
After touring an art gallery where we weren’t allowed to take photos, we went up to see Athena.
She wanted to be held like the goddess Nike in Athena’s hands.
After this, we went walking around and saw the herb garden at the Arts Center…
… a big train, which marks the spot that connected St. Louis, Nashville and Chattanooga…
… and a big airplane.
After our walk, Clawdeen was famished! Luckily, I knew of a great New York deli called Noshville that reminded Clawdeen of home.
She’ll be coming home soon!
I needed to run by the library after lunch so we looked at the big stack of books and the art gallery inside. All the artwork is made out of books.
Clawdeen really liked this flock of birds coming out of the book and wanted to sit a while to look at it.
Later on we went to downtown Nashville and took Clawdeen to see the Hard Rock Café.
Guess what! We ran into Elvis! Clawdeen was so excited!
While walking around, we saw this spiral thing. It’s a sculpture called Ghost Ballet. Not sure why it’s called that, but it was fun looking… and Clawdeen wanted our picture by it.
Then we went home so she could rest up for her next flight! See you soon, Delilah!
