Fish Fry, Nimrods, More Visiting & the Northwestern!

It rained on and off for most of the day on Friday which was OK because we stayed inside most of the day anyway…me working on songs and Michael piddling around with odds and ends.

Ft. McCoy Tour & Fiberglass Mold Graveyard

Campers started pulling out before 10:00 am Sunday morning and continued until almost 2:00 pm….even though check out time is 11:00 am.  They’re very lax on the rules around here.  We took an hour walk around the three circles of the campground in the afternoon and we surprised at how cleared out it was since … Continue reading »

Cranberry Country

Surprisingly, as full as the park is it as relatively quiet last night…even before quiet hours began at 11:00 pm.
