our 2nd trip

Good afternoon.
We've just returned from our second RV trip of the summer.
This one took us over to the shores of Lake Michigan, and Van Buren State Park.
For the most part it was a beautiful weekend. We had some heavy rain on Saturday afternoon, but we had already returned from our days outing, so we sat inside and watched as all the tenters scrambled to get to cover.   :-)
We left Lansing early Friday afternoon, after a busy morning in the Salon.
Arrived and set up our site.

We had a nice large corner lot.   :-)
Relaxed with cocktails as we watched other campers arrive, and had Turkey cheddar kielbasa's for dinner.
Saturday, we headed into South Haven for their annual Harbor Fest.
Music, arts, and crowds. Had lunch on a boat docked in the river downtown.
Headed back to the campground and took a walking tour, looking at the great variety of camping units from tiny tents, to large mo-ho's. Dinner was pork cutlets on the grill with grilled zucchini and a nice Greek pasta salad we picked up on the way back to the campground.
Sunday morning, after our coffee walk, we headed over to the Four Winds casino near Heartland, about 20 minutes from the campground. A small, but very nice casino, where we did okay. Down just a little when we left. Back at the campground, we headed over to the beach to people watch.

Sat near the top of the beach near the walkway and enjoyed the sun and sights. Lake Michigan is beautiful in the summer.
Back at the campsite, we had chicken thighs and asparagus on the grill with a cheddar macaroni salad.
Broke down camp in the early evening for an early morning departure.
Awoke to rain, but it was mainly sprinkling when it was time to load the car and dump the tanks. Headed back to Lansing in moderate rainfall, but it let up just enough to gas up and unload the car and back in the mo-ho.  I'm doing this post because it's raining again, and unable to do anything outside.
We've sure had enough rain this month.
But we got there safe, had a good time, and returned home safe.
It was a good trip.   :-)
Oh, and the beach pics look different from the others because I'm trying out my smart phone camera. It's got a pretty good one and I'm in the process of figuring it out.
Now the rain appears to be letting up, so I'm off to clean out the mo-ho.
