The Parthenon

Road Trip

We left Sunday midday to drive to Nashville to take our Greek Scholar (CJ is studying Culture & Identity of Fifth Century (BC) Athens as an Honors Course this semester at USF St Petersburg) on a field trip. Nashville TN has the only full scale replica of the Parthenon in the world. Travel plans were frustrated by the fact that the facility is not open on Sundays or Mondays, otherwise Greg would have joined us. We arrived Tuesday mid-morning and got a hotel room across from Centennial Park with a fabulous view of the Parthenon from our balcony. We spent a rainy afternoon at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Got a personalized tour of the African Exhibit and spent a lot of time in the two Impressionism Exhibits. We did some textile printing and gawked at the Art Noveau silver pieces. We spent Tuesday morning wandering through and gawking at the interior of the Parthenon with CJ as our personal guide. Then we made a beeline back to Florida so we could see Patti and Rebecca during their visit to Zephyrhills.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
