silver dollar potato pancakes

These are my last morning in Nashville pictures. I had time to take one more walk toward Vanderbilt University. I wanted to have breakfast at this diner called Noshville authentic New York delicatessen. It's a chain. Here are a few pictures of some things I appreciated along the way.
I noticed this bed of Zinnias. It reminded me of our amazing little garden outside our kitchen window at Glenridge when we lived in Augusta, Maine.

Whenever I come back from China I feel grateful to see churches of all denominations, with their unique and dignified architecture, such symbols of our freedoms.

Speaking of choices, I couldn't resist capturing the moment at the Panera bread bakery. Here's an outside shot, not really a great picture but you can see some of the Vanderbilt campus. Below that, a picture of the Magnolias. The name Vanderbilt makes me think about Magnolias. So I'm wondering if the founder of this University is related to our favorite CNN personality? I'm sure you know, Mom.

Here's a picture of the Hotel Indigo. Aside from being very comfortable,it's in a great location, walking distance to all the music sites. It's also a live music venue. I went to a couple of songwriters' nights in the cafe downstairs.
