Spent the weekend camping where the most urgent quest was to roast and consume the perfect marshmallow!
This is our very VINTAGE Holiday Rambler. Last year when my husband's terminal shut down, the closest terminal he could transfer to was almost four hours away. He works long days so that would leave no time to travel home. He was a week away from literally sleeping in his car to keep his job because we couldn't afford a hotel room every night so we found this camper along the side of the road. He lived in it in an abandoned parking lot. When winter hit he had to use a propane torch to defrost the door hinges to get in! I'm proud of him for doing what he had to in order to keep working. We were blessed that he found another job that allows him to be home every night and instead of selling the camper we gave camping a shot!
This is the view of the road from our site. The campground is pretty rustic with no water or electric hookup. there are 52 sites and only 7 were occupied - all with vintage campers like ours! LOL!
These stairs lead up to the upper level of campsites. We were on the lower level right on the lake so my daughter could go swimming. I could make it halfway up before stopping for a rest - they were pretty steep! The hill was filled with chipmunks - they were fun to watch. And at night hundreds of fireflies put on quite the lightshow - it was so magical.
These dragonflies flew over the lakeshore all day long. There were so many of them! And they were huge! My camera batteries died just as I was taking a picture of the lake, and I wanted to get a better pic of a dragonfly because their colors were much more brilliant than this picture shows.
Don't know what this stuff growing over the fence was but it smelled fresh & sweet!
Finally! I did bring my muslin & stuffing with me to camp and was able to get this far on one of the old dollies I'm making. Thanks for visiting my campsite with me! I have to get ready for work now...it's taken over 1/2 hour to get this post done! I look forward to being able to catch up on everyone's blogs soon!
Keep on creating!
