Catching up?

I know, I'm a terrible person!  I haven't kept up with my blog....again....

Never fear, we're still here and traveling.  Enjoying almost every moment of it too.  Our last stay was in Erie Pennsylvania and what a delightful campground!  Lampe Campground and Marina is located in the industrial area but not really...the bay is busy but not really. Hard to explain but it's fairly quiet, you do hear some noises but after the first night I didn't hear the 'white noise' of industry.  

We walked!  Out on the  pier, in the park, around the marina.  Weather was perfect.  Our first night, Sunday,  there was fireworks!  Turns out Tall Ships and a weekend of fun was over.  We even saw a couple of them leaving port because we were walking on that pier.  But I only had my small camera with me.

The campground wasn't huge and wasn't being used much.

As you can see it was a bright sunny day.  We enjoyed our stay.  Nice weather always makes for good memories.

On the other side of this channel is Presque Isle State Park and it is fantastic!  It's free to the public and they were using it.  Bike paths, picnic areas, beaches.  Something for everyone!

We bought a Subway sandwich and enjoyed a nice lunch overlooking the bay.  The drive around the peninsula was beautiful and we made plenty of stops to enjoy the views, monuments and lighthouse

We are now in Lima Ohio.  Our drive over was marred by Interstate 90 closing down and we had to find an alternative route.  My only concern was coming upon an obstruction for our tall rig.  Our GPS got er done!

We're staying at a delightful park.  Ottawa Metro Park is very nice for all the locals and those of us from out of state.  Small campground with electric (30Amp) and water.  Seniors pay $20 a night. We lucked out and have a grey water dump station right on our site.  Catching up on laundry!  I've never seen a separate station just for grey water.

There are lots of things to do here.  The walking paths are super for walking or biking.  Frisbee golf, an arboretum, Swimming hole with a beach.  The campground has a horseshoe pitch and volleyball.  The center row of sites is pull through and we have enough space to park in front or behind the rig.

After arriving Thursday and setting up we went for a walk, very enjoyable.

Yesterday we did chores....some cleaning in and out needed to be done.  After a busy morning we just relaxed and enjoyed the rest of the sunny day.  Good thing, because overnight rain moved in and all night it rained.  It seems to have stopped for now but it's still cloudy out there.

Not sure what's on the agenda for today.  We're leaving in the morning for Rising Sun Indiana.

Two years ago yesterday Jim had his bypass surgery.  I'm very grateful to have my husband still on this earth.  

All is right in our world
