Well, the Fourth of July is now behind us, but there is still a LOT of summer left for all to enjoy. And there’s no better place to enjoy summer than in the Greater Nashville area of Middle Tennessee!
At just six months old now, this 4th of July was Ruby’s first. You can tell she is excited about going to the lake:
She wasn’t quite as thrilled about getting in the lake though:
Our weekend officially started with the fireworks show at Cedar Creek Yacht Club. I found this upload on you-tube that is much better than any pictures I could have taken, which you will soon agree:
Sunday was a busy day on Old Hickory Lake. I think this is the most boats I have ever seen in “Two-Foot Cove,” which is Old Hickory Lake’s “Party Cove.”
Sunday night, a huge crowd of boats gathered at anchor in Drakes Creek of Old Hickory Lake to view Hendersonville’s fireworks display at Drakes Creek Park:
Fortunately, I found a video on you-tube capturing the finale of this event. My pictures just didn’t turn out well. After all, I am a Realtor, not a photographer!
Monday was a day to hang out at the marina and enjoy a great meal at The Black Pearl restaurant. The steel drums playing maje it the closest thing in Nashville to the Caribbean. If you haven’t experienced their Sunday Brunch, you owe it to yourself. www.blackjackcove.com
And then, Monday night topped off the entire weekend at Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville. I simply did not have the energy to make the trip downtown, but here are some videos I found on You-tube once again!
Here is the finale of “Let Freedom Sing” with this year’s special guest, Darius Rucker:
And when you have time, here is another video showing more of the extravanganza at Riverfront Park in Nashville.
Nashville was not the only city on the Cumberland River celebrating Independence Day. Clarksville was also a great place to be, especially since many troops are returning from their service for OUR freedom:
And half way in-between Nashville and Clarksville, Ashland City lit up the sky over their Riverfront as well:
Special thanks to all that took the time to film these great displays of fireworks and for allowing me to borrow them from You-Tube! It was a great weekend, but is now time to return to helping future homeowners find the perfect new home for their needs. At Ole South, this IS still the “Yes Days of Summer.” Come see why!
