Nashville & Destin Vacation

Deb and I drove to Nashville and Destin, FL. That’s right. We drove to make our own schedule so we could truly relax. I have to say it was quite enjoyable seeing parts of the country we have not seen.

We arrived in Nashville after a 7 hour drive from Peoria. My goal was to get some dusk pics of the John Seigenthaler pedestrian bridge overlooking the city. So, we quickly walked from our hotel to the bridge to scope out the best composition. After checking out the spots for pictures later, I flew the drone and waited for the sunset.

After catching the “pro shots”, we enjoyed Broadway and its Honky Tonk Bars. This gallery includes pics from both the stop down to Florida and on the way back.


On Friday morning, we drove by Vanderbilt University then visited Nashville’s Parthenon. That’s right, they have a full-size replica of the original that I visited in 2015.

Once we arrived in Destin, I was fortunate to capture some good morning shots. I can imagine revisiting and catching even more. The place is gold for morning shots of the sand dunes and fresh water lakes bordering the gulf.

These remaining pictures were captured driving through Alabama and while in Destin.
