RLT: Kansas! (Relax on Day 4)

Today is a ‘pause day’, not a lot of travel – instead a couple of local sights we took in… The first comes from a small hike, really more of a walk, exploring the Narrows of the Harpeth. On the Harpeth river that is. An absolutely fascinating place geographically and historically. The Harpeth river...

Well, after that wonderful fist day what comes next??? How about some breakfast in this unique mercantile. Couldn’t help but smile at the signage :-). How to describe the place?
