The white clouds against the blue sky also caught my eye.
Nashville West is a huge plaza situated on Charlotte Pike. Three years ago, this strip of land was full of trees, plants, wildflowers and weeds. Today, it's another cement jungle. Stores currently open there include Target, Dick's Sporting Goods, BestBuy, Books-A-Million, and World Market. There are other stores currently open, and developers are busy building more portions of the plaza. You can see that they've cleared the area above for construction.
While I like the place, I personally don't understand why the outdoor plazas have become popular again since I don't relish walking in hot, cold, or rainy weather to go from store to store. (Luckily, we don't have to contend with snow in Nashville too often.) I much prefer staying dry and comfortable in a temperature-controlled mall. . . but that's me.
There are, as I write this, over 110 bloggers participating in SkyWatch Friday. The number is sure to climb to more than 200 by Friday afternoon. You can find links to the other participating sites on Wigger's World by clicking here.
