Day 9 and 10 – Nashville, Memphis, Nashville
Day 9 and 10 – Branson, Memphis and Nashville
Yesterday we started our journey North from Nashville. It was sad to leave Music City – just love that city!
We were treated so well throughout our stay in the South
Lunch was at a really unique destination in the rural countryside, by Louisville. The scenic drive to get there was stunning – beautiful homes – many with ponds on their large properties, narrow windy roads/
Our destination was a Family Farm where we were served a Country Thanksgiving Feast. Everything was made from scratch – salads, turkey, ham, fried chicken with all the fixings and a choice of cobblers for dessert. We ate extremely well during this journey but if I had to pick a favourite meal I think it would have to be this one.
Dinner was fantastic too. We dined at “La Comedia Dinner Theatre”. I’ve taken groups here for years and I’ve learned how to beat their crowds. It was a sold out house so we showed up just a couple minutes before they opened the buffet. We walked in and were taken to our seats – the rest of the house had already been seated. Perfect. Below find the recipe for their famous “Sweet Potato Soufflé”.
Last nights production was the broadway show, “White Christmas”. The cast was top notch. This was a big production for La Comedia to mount but they did it with flying colors. Probably the best production I’ve seen there.
Today I was concerned about the weather. There were snow warnings especially around Detroit (up to 8 inches) but other than the odd snow shower there was no issue and the roads remained bare but wet.
Our farewell luncheon was at a very posh mansion close to Detroit. It was beautifully decorated for the season. Couldn’t ask for a nicer location and the 3 course meal they served was good too.
Clearing customs into Canada was quick.
We arrived back in Woodstock at 545pm.
My passengers have been raving about this journey – we really had a fantastic time – everyone may need a day of rest now that we are home – we kept very busy while we were away but we saw so many wonderful things and everyone appreciated that I threw in MANY extras.
Thanks to all my amazing passengers – one big family!
Seasons Greetings to all!
