Memorial Day Weekend

Good morning. Our warm weather has arrived. It was a warm one yesterday and I was a bit concerned about how warm it would be for sleeping. We have air-conditioning in Winnie, but with only 30 amps here, in this state park, we cannot use it as we continually blow circuits.  No worries. It cooled down and we enjoyed a comfortable nights sleep.

I mentioned the 30 amps in this state park, Brighton Recreation Area. We like this state park, despite the lack of 50 amps, for few reasons. The park itself is close to family, healthcare providers and shopping. But, it is also a nice park to kick back and relax in and it has a good sandy beach that is in walking distance from all of the park sites for the kids to enjoy.

The other campground that we use during our stay here in Michigan, is in Wixom. It is also a state park, Proud Lake Recreation Area. That campground has a few 50 amp sites for us with larger units and it is just as nice for relaxing. Proud Lake is known for having many trails for hiking and biking. It is also known for being a great place to go canoeing. The park even has a canoe rental area set up in the park. On the down side, it is not a good park for the kids to go swimming. The beach area (if that is what you want to call it) is all mud and no sand.

Because Brighton has the nice beach for the kids, we prefer to be here on warm days so the kids can enjoy their time with us. It is also a few dollars cheaper than Proud Lake. This weekend is going to be a hot one! Our highs are upper 80’s to 90º. The kids should have a great time. Now just to keep the rain and mosquitos at bay for the entire weekend.

This morning we will joining many others in the grocery store to stock up with goodies. We will be doing some grilling for sure. I also have a few books in at the library to pick up. I don’t know how come I have never read any of Sue Grafton’s books, but I’m glad I found a series to start on. I am almost finished with “A” is for Alibi.

This is Memorial Day weekend. It is a time to remember those who died while serving in the military fighting for our freedom. We decided to decorate the outside of Winnie a little to show our appreciation for those who served and those who are now serving in our country’s armed forces. Thank you.
