Wishing Each of
You a Happy Easter!

So after a quite night we pulled out of the Walmart in Bryan, OH. We headed a couple of miles south and then turned East on US 6. Today's ride is only 88 miles and the RV Park we are headed for, Harbortown RV Resort near Monroe, MI, describes their sites as level and paved. We are feeling confident this park is going to work out. Again more money then we care to spend but we need a place to land for a couple of days before we head further north to the Michigan State Park we are booked at for eleven days.
|We are on US 6 in Ohio heading East.|
|Continuing on our way under lovely blue skies|
|the one thing we noticed different from a few days ago|
the trees are just starting to bud
|and there is not a lot of green to be seen out the window.|
|I cannot believe I actually got the picture.|
I thought for sure I had missed the engine.
|Going by Perrysburg|
|then again after merging onto I-75.|
|In no time we were going around Toledo.|
|Then the sign we have been waiting to see|
and since we tow a Jeep I decided to include this one.
|We are still about 470 miles from where we call home but|
we have crossed into Michigan.
|and where we will call home for the next two nights.|
|Looking down the row at the end of our site.|
|There we are parked on a paved driveway|
that was long enough to leave the Jeep hooked up.
So ended our day. No sunset we were under grey skies but we are parked and have full hookups.

Our first day back in Michigan and we pretty much did nothing. Cleaned a little and did a couple batches of wash. Tom actually put up the Antennae and watched some television and neither of us could remember the last time we turned it on. It rained a little during the day but overall it was a relaxing day.
|I went out near the time the sun was setting.|
Out towards the east the clouds had made a swoosh.
|Looking south there was a slight break in the clouds|
|and to the west just a little bit of pink just above the horizon.|

Today we will make the trip up I-75 and connect with I-94 to reach our next destination in 92 miles and where we will stay for 11 days. During this time we will spend time with our son, daughter-in-law, and three of our grandchildren. The oldest will make his First Communion the Saturday after Easter and we feel blessed to be here to see it happen. Tom unhooked our utilities and just after 11 o'clock we were on I-75 heading north.
|The Stinger "B" is ready for the I-94 challenge.|
|If you click on the picture and enlarge it you should be able to see|
the two ducks swimming in the pool.
|and we can see Detroit in the distance.|
|Then we are on I-94|
|and there is the inevitable construction.|
|Passing St. Clair Shores we will back here tomorrow.|
|After turning right on to M-29 in a few miles we are at the park.|
That is the St. Clair River on the left.
|Tom on the phone checking us in.|
We are wondering if there is someone in the building during the summer.
We will find out when we head back this way in June.
Our next stop was at the Campground Host's site were we picked up a map of the sites and were to get water. There are several water faucets throughout the campgrounds the only problem is you cannot hookup a hose to any of them. The only thing they are good for is to fill up a jug which is pretty useless if you want to fill up a fresh water tank on a motor home. There is presently only one spot were you can hook up a hose and we had to go back out to the dump station just behind the above building to fill up our fresh water tank. This is a decent park and the Stinger "B" has all her wheels on gravel so we will not be sinking into the grass. We have a 50 amp electric hookup, we can get water and use the dump station. The sites are tight and from what we can see it is a popular place for families. One last thing which is not an issue this stay, and we will make a note for future reference, from what we can tell we are in the only site without a fire pit or picnic table. In the future not being able to have a fire with our grandchildren here would not be fun. Once it stops raining and the weekend people pull out we will be taking a walk around looking at the various sites and making notes. I did already check out the site we have reserved for June and we will have a fire pit and picnic table. So in the end this may not be a perfect park but it works for what we need and it is only about 40 minutes north of our family. I think we will be happy here and our grandchildren will enjoy coming to visit and staying with us in the summer.
Glad you stopped in for a visit.
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
