Lake Erie and the Great Lakes

I’ve been fascinated by the Great Lakes since the first time

I read about them in a geography class. . .

Great Lakes

so knowing we were only a few miles from Lake Erie was exciting. . .

we got the rig set up. . .and rushed right over to Ashtabula to lay eyes on it. . .

it was even more massive than I had imagined. . .it looked and sounded like the Gulf of Mexico. . .

only without the fishy smell.  I guess the wind had the sand stirred up,

because it was very, very muddy looking, although we could see clear blue water out near the horizon line.

not sure what temp the water is at. . .but the closer we got to the lake. . .

the more the thermometer dropped. . .to this glorious 65*. . .air conditioned sunshine!

Kenisee Lake RV Resort is part of our Thousand Trails Membership Program. . .

so when we realized how packed everything was going to be for the Fourh of July weekend. . .

and how ridiculous the prices were ($294 per week)

we decided to just schedule three weeks here at $3 per night

and stay put until all the craziness is over. . .

 

We really just thought we’d get a lot of chores done,

washing and waxing the coach, and miscellaneous projects. . .

so we have been pleasantly surprised to find out how much there is to do in the area. . .

seems we’ll be a lot busier playing tourist than we had anticipated. . .

we’ll keep you posted. . .

 

Til next time,
