6/1/13 Saturday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)
It did rain last night, but gently, falling straight down, no hail or gusty winds. Only once that I heard. Thus we woke and were ready to get up by 7:45 am. Just in time to get dressed and off to the Farmer’s Market in Buchanan that starts at 8:00 am. We were told if we didn’t get there soon after it opened all the good produce would be gone.
Of course, not quite knowing where the Buchanan Commons was, it took awhile to find it – right behind the Library!!! This Market was small, but well arranged, with wonderful crafts and foods. We even talked with the ladies from St. Anthony Catholic Church, selling their baked goods. Thus they told us how to get to the church, what time Mass is and neat places to explore near here. Unfortunately, John is trying to watch his bakery good intake, while I usually am, so we didn’t buy any of their wares.
We did buy strawberries, snap peas and a tomato.
Back to the RV and breakfast. The rest of this morning we got involved, first with what we wanted to do/see while here, then soon we got into planning our paths from campground to campground. We’re avoiding going through Detroit to get from near East Lansing, MI to St. Clair Thousand Trails. but it would be just too many extra miles to avoid Detroit when leaving St. Clair, MI for the state park that is our next stop, in Indiana.
Before we knew it, lunch hungers struck. Once those were taken care of, we decided we’d better get our groceries from a bigger store, at the Kroger in South Bend, IN. We looked into exploring South Bend, but we just didn’t feel there was enough time.
Still no rain, so John grilled hamburgers. We enjoyed our tasty tomato in our hamburgers, then strawberries for desert. Oh, corn on the cob with our hamburgers too.
Our “no rain” evening went by quietly as we watched taped TV shows. Hey, lots of stuff was taping while we visited at Horseshoe Lakes and with Cathy.
They say it will rain tonight. We’ll see. Part of me is not happy that since it’s predicted to rain a lot we’re living with our slides in to minimize the damage of rain, keeping close to home. Another part of me is happy that we’ve not had the rain that would create wet areas.
