Michigan House on Campground
On Monday we awoke to sunshine, and we were ready to go scouting! We wanted to see some of the local attractions that we had not seen before. Just a little south of Hendersonville is the village of Flat Rock, which is an area I had seen several places to rent or purchase. So we started in that section, and we stopped at the village strip that had some rainbow colored little shops of interest.
My favorite store was "The Wrinkled Egg". I love that picture of the chicken laying a wrinkled egg! Cute...funny!! This shop had several sections...children's toys, home deco, women's clothing...a very nice place to browse. But my favorite area was where I made a new friend...Lola, the bunny. Isn't she sweet????
We then drove down the road a ways to see what Kenmure Golf Community was about. Oh, my goodness! We pulled into paradise!!
This picture represents the absolute best of the beauty of spring!! This golf course community is set in the foothills of the Smokies, and there were many homes up the hillsides...some secluded, and some in clusters. The golf course itself was simply pristine!
The Historic Courthouse sets right in the middle of Hendersonville's main street. It's being refurbished as a museum, but it wasn't open when we were there. Main street is several blocks of stores and restaurants in a shopper friendly setting. On Labor Day weekend, they close off the street to traffic and bring in the bands and vendors and all the hoopla to celebrate Apple Festival.
We were enticed to have a steak at Binion's Roadhouse. There was another vehicle that must have decided to stay awhile, since the food was so good!
We spent one night down in Flat Rock and then spent a couple of nights in the Marriott Fairfield Inn by the Asheville Airport. Went browsing at one of our favorite furniture stores, Ashley Furniture. Then it was time for the next leg of our journey...heading to Knoxville, TN.
Actually, this probably makes for a good breaking point in this blog post. I thought I could do the whole 3 week trip in one post, then decided two would be better. Now I'm thinking I should make it three. I had more pictures than I realized. So...I'll be back!!
