Good morning. The weatherman says it is going to be another comfortable day with temps around 80, but it is also supposed to be overcast all day. That makes for a gloomy no sun day. The good news is no high wind advisory for today.
Our time here is almost up. Only a few days left. In reflecting back over this last month our stay here is not what we expected. From what we have been told, the weather has been exceptionally cool for this area (and everywhere else). I pictured us spending time walking along the beach or sitting in our lounge chairs on the beach enjoying the fresh air, sunshine and warm temperatures. That never happened. We did walk along the beach a few times but I never had the desire to bring my chair and sit. The wind was always too strong for my liking. Just call me spoiled. I love my Michigan beaches.
As I mentioned before, the campground is very large with many sites that are close together. Location wise our site is ideal. We can see the water from our site and we are close enough to the beach to takes walks anytime we want. But the site has many flaws. It is rocky with lots of pits. There is no nice area to put out your chairs to sit and relax. The picnic table is cemented in the ground and is located so that when you open your door it is right there. When walking the park I’ve noticed some sites are nicer than others. Some have cement patios, others have nice grassy areas.
The campground is going through major renovations. I do not know if that means they will be cleaning up and redoing the sites or just some of the areas. I’ve also heard that they are changing the reservation system they now have in place. This change is not one long time campers welcome. I do not know, but I will assume that with the campground renovations will also come raised camping rates to help offset the cost of improvements.
The campground does have many activities that are available to participate in if you choose. I have enjoyed the beading group and the show and tell group. We also went to bingo. There seems to be something for everyone if you choose.
Will we come back? Probably not next year. We have enjoyed the area. There are many things to do and see here. We did some and left some for another time. But, there are still many places we haven’t visited and would like to see.
Loving our lifestyle. Have a good day.
Until next time,
