One down, 49 to go

Bernie finished yesterday the honey do list for both the old and new places. Today we did our final packing and then we hit the road but did not go all that far. We went into Bloomington IN to run some errands.

We went to Walmart to get milk and return the movies to RedBox. We went to Office Depot to send a fax. We went to the auto parts store to get a new gas cap, because ours broke.

We actually wanted to stick around until dinnertime so we could go try out the best burger in the state of Indiana, according to an article in the Food Network Magazine.

The restaurant is Farm Bloomington. It has both a funky farm feel and a new age feel. The two are mixed in the funky upholstery and the traditional chairs and even a collection of bedpans hanging on the wall next to the restroom.

The burger was a bison burger. It was a good, tasty burger. Not the best but it was a different taste and we were happy to try it out. It was a pretty big burger too, one was enough for the both of us.

The FN article is about the 50 best burgers in the 50 states. We think it might be fun to try them all. The problem is, we’ve already been to half the states. Oh well, at least we have one less on the list now.

Then we drove south two hours and headed to the free concert in the park in Jeffersonville IN. By the time we got there they were already finished so we pushed on and went to the Founders Day Festival in Charlestown IN, about 20 minutes away.

We walked around the crafts tents and the food carts. We were still full from that bison burger so we weren’t even tempted. Then we walked around some more and Bernie got to shoot a paint ball gun for the first time. She was able to hit five out of the six targets dead on.

After that we sat down to listen to the live band play for a while. It was a hot night tonight. We returned to Bella, in a church parking lot across the street from the festival, to spend the night.
