Setting Up the Patio Area

Good morning. It looks like the rain has finally stopped for the next few days. With temperatures in the 70’s all week, we will be able to sit outside and enjoy some perfect weather.

We moved yesterday from Proud Lake State Park in Wixom, Michigan to the Brighton Recreation Area, Bishop Lake Campground. It is another Michigan State Park that is close to family, doctors and is in the area of our old home. Both campgrounds are convenient and only about 25 miles apart. With a 15 day limit we will be going back and forth between the two campgrounds for a while.

As I mentioned before this is our home base where our doctors (and we do have a few), dentist, ophthalmologist and vet are all located.  Appointments have been made. So in-between sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather we will be doing what old people do – visit the doctors.

We finally got to set up our outdoor patio area to make it homey. It is the first time since we left here last fall that we have been able to do so. The weather just hadn’t cooperated with us anywhere. We even grilled out (hamburgers) and ate at the picnic table. Our son, Kevin stopped by on his way home from work to see us and enjoy our first cookout of the season.

Bishop Lake Campground – site #4

In the picture above we hadn’t moved the picnic table yet. The beautiful flowers were a Mother’s Day gift from my grandson Tristan. He also gave us the patio rug last fall. This is the first time we have been able to put it out.

With all the rain we have been getting, the grass is a bit long and the mosquitos and gnats were bad yesterday. Hopefully they will be able to mow soon.

Today is our 47th wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe 2 years ago we took our first adventure in Winnie. Now look at us. We are retired full-time RV’ers. It has been 8 months now of living in our motorhome. I do not miss having a S&B home at all. Some may find that odd. This is our way to see our loved ones and friends more often and also see more of our beautiful country. Yep. Loving the lifestyle. Have a great day.

Until next time,

Kathryn
