Still don't have much to write about. I'm really surprised that this park is as empty as it is. In fact, there's fewer RVs here now than anytime during our stay here so far. I suppose it could be that people are staying away from this area because of all the flooding that happened in this area almost 2 weeks ago.
I'm also thinking that because the 4th is on Wednesday, it may be difficult for people to get enough days off of work to include the weekend in the holiday. Of course it's always possible that the weekend after the 4th will be included in the holiday period.
Today, Jim and Linda are planning on going back into town to get a few more groceries. The CG where we'll be staying at in Michigan is pretty far from any stores, so they're going to stock up now, for our stay.
Oh, speaking of the CG in Michigan, I had a couple comments yesterday that I'd like to comment on.
The reason we're staying at the CG near Ahmeek is that Jim and Linda have been there before and really liked it and the people running it. It's a very quiet CG and I'm told the view is terrific!! It is small, but that's one thing that they like about it.
Thanks for the suggestion about the park in Houghton though, Darrell. Jim says that he and Linda will try to get over there and check it out, and who knows, maybe we'll stay there the next time we're in the area. : )
In the other comment, "westside mom" said that they may want to stay at the park I'll be staying at. That would be great, but be sure to call ahead. It is a small park and it's pretty full throughout most of the summer. Jim called and made reservations for me way back in May, before the CG was even open for the season, and even then couldn't get the exact dates that he wanted.
Did you know that fireworks were invented in China in the 12th century to ward off evil spirits?
