As I write this, a little before midnight on Wednesday, I keep thinking about the fact that when I wrote my blog 24 hours ago, Hurricane Dorian was bearing down on us and we didn’t know what the night might bring. What it brought was a lot of wind and a lot of rain, but […]

For over 24 hours Hurricane Dorian has been moving (or not moving) at the speed of sludge over the Bahamas. For a good part of yesterday its westward speed was only one mile per hour. While that’s good for the people here in Florida who are in no hurry to deal with it, it’s terrible […]

We’ve never been to a nudist […]

We have enjoyed our week in Muskegon, Michigan but sadly, it’s time to leave and get on down the road. But we sure have had a wonderful time in this friendly lakeside community. We stayed at Fisherman’s Landing, a city owned marina and campground, where our back-in RV site had a concrete pad with picnic […]
