Mmm…A Trip to the Farmer’s Market

Every Saturday in the summer, farmers from around Tennessee gather in the square at The Streets of Indian Lake in Hendersonville. It’s great to see them there among the shops of this outdoor mall. The three weeks that I’ve visited, business has been brisk. You can’t beat the fresh vegetables or the prices. Let’s hope the event becomes a tradition.

Rockland Recreational Area, Hendersonville, TN

This Army Corp of Engineers recreation area is just 4 miles from my house. The look of the place reminds me of the campground the kids and I visited over Memorial Day weekend. There’s a lock dividing Old Hickory Lake and the Cumberland River, fantastic shaded areas with picnic tables, and fishing. The only thing missing is camping facilities. I wish it had them; it would be so much easier to go camping closer to home.

I rode my bike to Rockland this evening. It was a hot but enjoyable ride.
