I am staying at the most incredible place - the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center! Someone told me there are 4,000 rooms here and it is the biggest convention center I have ever seen - and the most beautiful, too! There are lots of restaurants and shopping available, as well as coffee shops - and it's all under one roof. Everywhere you look, there is something you want to take a picture of! It is absolutely gorgeous!
They still have their Christmas decorations up here - and they are phenomenal! I have never seen such beautiful scenery. Colorful flowers and greenery is everywhere and the orchids here are to die for! Below is a hot air balloon hanging from the ceiling!
This is me and my friend Julie Kasper from the Chicago area! We are heading off to the Manager's Reception - and it's always a surprise where we are going! We were given these hats to get us ready for the destination!
We all boarded busses and were taken to the Wildhorse Saloon, where we had a barbecue buffet and then listened to several bands. The gentleman below is a well-known artist, but unfortunately, I didn't recognize his name and I can't remember who he is! SORRY! Do you recognize him, perhaps? His songs were beautiful.
Here's a shot of the inside of the saloon! It's BIG!
All the demonstrators were then given a lesson on line dancing. The shot below is everyone getting their lesson! It was really fun!
Brother Trouble then performed for us and it was a very lively and entertaining evening! They were fabulous and I must admit my toe was tapping!
