Ole man Murphy had a different idea. The weather climbed well into the nineties. There were air quality alerts which made it impossible for John to be out and about.
Bob and Deb graciously asked us to stay there until we could travel and John could enjoy being outdoors without putting his health in jeopardy.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, John and Bob worked on the motorhome. The generator had been giving us a hard time. Now, the Genny runs smooth as a kitten!
Monday, Deb and I sat on the deck and were spinning away while watching and listening to the different voices of the sheep. Oliver, Olivia and Fergus the Australian Sheep Dog got to know each other.
Tuesday, Deb continued to spin and I brought out my antique circular sock machine. Being away from my fiber equipment for over a year has created quite a review and relearning experience. Finally, I feel at home again with my wheel and my CSM.
Wednesday, John mounted the brackets on the trailer bed for holding the bicycles. Yeah! Now, we don't have to have the bikes inside the motorhome while driving! That was a pain!
The gathering was an all day affair, so I got quite a bit of spinning completed. I was even able to ply the yarns in to two ply yarn. Now, I need to decide what I am going to knit with it.
Yesterday, we arrived at Grand Harbor State Park. The drive was a short one, thank goodness as we had a late start.
After our late start, we stopped at Bed Bath & Beyond for coffee pods for the Keurig and a few little, miscellaneous items. Then, John went in Menards (a Home Depot or Loews for all out west).
We needed a couple two by fourteen boards for the car to sit on. Right now since the Miata is a little two seater and sits close to the trailer floor and the door hits the metal rail. Right now, it is hard to exit the Miata after driving the it on the trailer.
Getting to Grand Haven was a breeze. And what a breeze we have here....simply maaavalous.
The culture shock really got to us though. Being accustomed to large, roomy campsites, welllll, let's have a look. Drum roll please! And on our left....Does the name Intruder describe our situation?
This unity is cozily tucked to our right. We can't say that we have a site with a great view. But, we are here for just two nights and tonight is the second. But wait! I am not finished....
THIS IS THE VIEW FROM OUR FRONT WINDOW!
If we were staying here for a full two weeks or even one week, I think I'd be a little bit nuts before the end. BUT, we are leaving tomorrow. Ahhh, all is well.
We went to the beach to try to capture a beautiful sunset. What we got was a so, so sunset. Here are a few of the photos I took. Maybe someone will enjoy the sunset at Lake Michigan.
I enjoy the sailboat with the United States Flag. It was not in the sunset, but love it anyway. United we stand!

You KNOW John is going to get me when he sees this!
Good Night and God Bless!
