After a long day on Monday, off loading the truck and putting beds together, Tuesday we had some shopping to do. Driving into downtown we see the city skyline. Doesn't the AT&T building look like Batman?
We headed into downtown to see the capitol, the Bicentennial Park and ......the Farmer's Market.
The wall that runs along the street the length of the market has the history of Tennessee. It is a wonderful historical display that has great quotes from all sorts of folks that impacted the growth of Tennessee.
The state capitol building is at the end (or beginning) of the block. You see the the columns on the right have dates of the timeline. The black granite wall tells the story of Tennessee. I will go back again and again, kind of hot this time of year to read ALL of it.
The area of the wall that tells of the Civil War is just across the street from the Food Court at the Farmer's Market.
Time for lunch!! Love the sculpture of the tomato and corn...the corn is a little harder to see, it is a bike rack.
The sculpture is titled "Corn and Tomato" by Dan Goostree and Paige EasterHere is a great write up on the different foods available. We had BBQ, quite good. Someone in the group had a patriotic cupcake. Blueberry filled.
On the Fourth we opted not to go to the fireworks display, still really warm. We did do a quick run downtown to go by the Ryman, Tootsies, and other great iconic music destinations.
It was time to head home and let her settle into her new place. The drive home we went through the mountains, past Asheville. Saw something kind of scary----fire on the mountain side. Hope the rain that came through took care of it.
Yes, it is blurry, we were on the highway.
When we got into our neighborhood we saw something we don't usually see... a gray fox trying to get to the lake through someone's driveway. Hope this little guy found his drink of water and disappeared back into the woods.
