Best 3 hour away trip ever...

So monday morning i needed some steroids for the poinson ivy i had between my toes (among other places); got the rx and the shot and we decided we needed another camping trip so we packed up and headed west to the big lake yet again.
Only one speedway stop on the way to fill up and we landed at Silver Lake state park after examining Yogi Bear and two other campgrounds right there. The dunes are pretty but we did not indulge in them...we tried to listen to the Tigers with Sierra on the shore of Silver Lake while the sun set and the wind blew. A wonderfully chilly night and all three of us slept well after hot dogs on the fire. A glorious morning but we couldn't get our same campsite so we took a leap of faith ("..take a leap of faith. let us return back as young men together".) and headed north to Pentwater. Drove around the lake and found the Charls Mears State Park. The nice young man at the booth gave us the sites currently vacant and my bride picked #1 and so it was too be! Spent the afternoon on the beach and Sierra got many complements...walked out on the pier and got pizza and headed back to camp for the sunset and the tiger game. my sugar is getting low and i need to eat...more later

August 2010

Click on the photo, you'll be taken to the Picassa album of our trip to Leelanau County in the new PT Cruiser...

Hot August Nights

Spent much of the last week camping at the tip of the Leelanau penninsula and enjoying that part of the state for the first time. Nice area, want to go back and explore more. Props to Tom's in Northport which sold us every type of supply we could ever need at a reasonable price. Sierra the Malamute went and enjoyed herself thoroughly, or so she said. She loved the Big Lake sandy beach at Empire and dug herself in when it was time to rest from all the lake romping.
Reading Prince Caspian and then The Dawn Treader in anticipation of the new movie coming out this Christmas.
Watched Inception again and finally realized the made up guy at the beginning and end of the movie was the guy who wanted Cobb to plant the idea in the mind of his competitor. Note to self: you don't need that free popcorn refill.
Chainsawed some trees yestreday into firewood.
Life's good.
