We’re ready to go

Finally, we were able to go camping for a weekend! We’ve been on hold most of the summer due to Jon having a back injury. We got ready in baby steps, making plans to go back to Kal-Haven RV Park in South Haven. Weather reports looked great through Sunday night, so off we went. Chose an alternate route to get there, probably wasn’t the best choice, but it was scenic. Of course, we still went past Luisa’s Cafe in Harbert, Michigan, so we could get danishes for breakfast. We continued on, with full tummies. Having left Wolcott early, we got in early to South Haven and our site was open. After a little R&R we went into town for the evening. Of course, according to Jesse, the first and most important stop was the Decadent Dog. She was her usual miss personality and people fell in love with her. South Haven was full of people enjoying summer. It’s such a great town along the lake and is fun to walk around. Our dinner for the night was already planned, a homemade pizza from the Glenn Store. Glenn is a small village 10 miles north of South Haven, consisting of an old time hardware store, antique shop, bed & breakfast, grade school and the Glenn Store.

Look Dad, they have dogs too!

On Saturday, Karen made egg scrambles on the grill. Boy was it good. We road tripped up to Douglas and Saugatuk. These are a couple of beautiful villages on the big lake filled with shops and great places to eat. Yachts are docked along the walkway in Saugatuk to drool over. Jesse was excellent and made more new friends. As always, on a beautiful day, parking was tough but we found a new hidden spot. Our big purchase was salt water taffy from Kilwin’s. After a few hours we headed back to camp to relax. One stop first though, the Glenn Store, for some fresh sandwiches, wrapped in white butcher paper. This is a fantastic little store, with great service and food. For a small store, the amount of liquor they stock boggles the mind. We spent the rest of the evening chatting with our neighbors at the campground. People enjoy checking out our Airstream and we enjoy showing it to them. A check of the weather map made a change in plans and we were out of there early Sunday morning headed back home.
