Where is the Food on Old Hickory Lake

January 3, 2011

Anchor High Marina, The Black Pearl at Blackjack Cove, Shady Cove Marina, Gallatin Marina, Cherokee Marina. There is something great on the water at all these wonderful Restaurants. All are lakeside and The Black Pearl at  Blackjack Cove and Anchor High are Floating Restaurants. I visit them all and I recommend them all to you but I am a little biased, I love Gene Conyers place at Shady Cove Marina and The Black Pearl at Blackjack Cove Marina.  Most have web pages or have facebook pages check them out. I am really excited about the new menu at The Black Pearl at Blackjack Cove. There will be much more on all the restaurants and facilities on the lake stay tuned.

New Years on Old Hickory Lake

January 3, 2011

Wow ! New Years Day, Whats 2011 gonna be like, what am I going to do today to start of the year off right. I have to eat my blackeyed peas, at least 365 of them I hear, Gotta have some cabbage, no chicken cause my feathers will be ruffled all year, no beef cause life will be tough and hard to chew, oh yeah the other white meat! pork so life will be fat. and boy was it good! with a 1000 options of what we could do with out spending a pile of cash we spent the day on the lake with great friends. Fired up the diesels and took a cruise, had brunch on the boat and had a great day. At 1500 RPM’s we left Blackjack Cove Marina and headed east. My buddy Trey Lewis being the outstanding Captain he is took us on a ride up drakes creek to Don Wolfards place Drakes Creek Marina and then we rode on up to Sarah Woods place at Creekwood Marina. I was so surprised to see just how many people had the same idea we had about spending the holiday with our dock family. As we rode up and down each pier i bet we wished 50 boaters a happy new year and raised our glasses in salute. The lake is just an awesome place to spend valuable, quality, precious off time. Let me quote my friend David Hartley ” i know this sounds silly and some people might not understand but there’s just something special about the people and the time we spend together on the water.” As he talked I realized that the dock is a place that is safe to most of us, a place where lifes everyday troubles get left behind as we climb out of the car, stress drowns in the water as we head down the gangway towards paradise, the friends and relationships made on the water are special, no social status, no credit scores, a place to share and dream. and aplace to make memories that last a life time. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
