|Auburn Hills Farmer's Market|
In the past I have always just driven up and browsed the market on my own, but this year I thought that it would be nicer just to walk up with Diesel. I have done this once before, and Diesel was so well loved and welcomed (even getting a free hot dog) I had to bring him again, and post about our walk.
Well come Thursday wouldn't you know it, the weather was hot! And usually on hot days I like to wait until after dinner when the sun has started to hide behind the trees a little more. If Diesel and I were going to make it to the market we'd have to be on our way no later than 6 and it would take some extra planning and supplies. I got on my lightest weight cloths, my walking shoes and packed my little backpack. Complete with Diesel's travel water dish and a bottle of water, and for bring the goodies home, my farmer's market bag I got last year.
Diesel and I headed on down the road about 6 o'clock, hit the Clinton River Trail as always, and then made it to downtown about 20 minutes later. It didn't take any time at all to meet up with my mother-in-law who had stopped up as well. And wouldn't you know it, as soon as I turned around there was Mikey on my motorcycle. He deemed it too hot to walk but wanted to take our new bike out for another test run. We let Diesel get some water and we rested in the shade for a moment and then the four of us wandered amongst the merchants. While Diesel was busy making friends, I picked up some tomatoes, some garlic bread and an ice cold Arnold Palmer. Mikey headed on down the road to our friends house, while I parted ways with Margaret.
