Belle Meade

Mommy, Daddy, Grandpa and Aunt Pam visited Belle Meade, a former plantation and race horse breeding and training farm from waaay back when...Actually, Aunt Vicki and Uncle Charlie live in a development on what used to be Belle Meade's fox hunting grounds. They toured the mansion, some of the out-buildings and walked the grounds before chatting-up the authentic "smithy" about how hot his metal was...talk about a rough job, wearing authentic period clothing in August outside playing with a fire and molten metal all day. And speaking of hot, Daddy took the opportunity to relax, southern style, by rocking on the front porch of the mansion.
