Cheekwood rocks the house. Can’t believe we’ve lived here this long and yesterday was our first visit. I knew it would be nice, but that’s as far as my expectations went: “nice.” In fact, it was spectacular. Beautiful. Tranquil. Loved the sculpture trail. Loved the Japanese garden.

So we bought a “Family” membership, which means we now get in free as often as we want, and we can bring two guests with us. And we plan to go back frequently. Yay!

Lunch was at Baja Burrito (as was dinner, thanks to the magic of huge burritos and reheated leftovers). We gave up on trying places we’d never been before: they were all turning out to be so disappointing!

And I mostly finished my CD ripping project. I have a small stack remaining, and they should be finished by the end of today. Feels great to finish a household project finally. I’ve had so many of these kinds of things in limbo for, well, for years, really. Should have done this vacation at home thing a long time ago. Maybe not a whole week, maybe that amount of time is too much. But a few days and a weekend, that should do it. I’ll have to plan for that again in maybe a year or so.

Vacation, day #5

    Jeez…

    I wish you wouldn’t tell me about things like the Cheekwood Sculpture Trail – I may have to completely revamp my opinion of TN. 🙂

    Oooh…purty! I’ve never been there before, either, and I’ve lived here all my life. I’ll definitely have to check it out now, though. 🙂

    Thanks to you, I’m now craving burritos. 😛

    I revamp my opinion of TN every day. Up, down, up, down. 🙂 Mostly up, though.

    Hee! 🙂

    Actually, I think I misunderstood the benefit: after reading the info on their site, it looks like it’s two guests rather than three. So I changed the entry to reflect that.
