Pit stop #4: Shelbyville

19 May

We decided to stay in Shelbyville, TN so we could visit the Jack Daniels plant in Lynchburg, but the day got away from us and we ran out of time, but it was a quiet town and nice change of pace on the road. Shelbyville is the home of the Tennessee Walking Horse, so there’s that. We decided their famous walk is both cool and strange. Peyton said they have noodle legs.

We went for a walk down to the Duck River and enjoyed a water view we haven’t seen in a long time. On the way, the girls joyfully shouted out all the plants and wildlife they’ve missed in the Bahamas and Florida, things like dandelion fluff, cardinals, and robins. Max (being a Florida dog…and we are assuming here since we don’t know his history) had never seen a dandelion tuft, and wasn’t too sure about them.
