We tried to go to Indiana Dunes National Park. It would have been our 13th park in a little over a month, but it wasn’t meant to be. We were headed through the area on a Saturday with the camper. We made it to the visitor center and looked over some of the displays, but we really wanted to see the dunes. Well it was so busy on this Saturday that there was nowhere to park near the dune area. So we decided to visit this park another time. We did make our way to Bear Cave Thousand Trails park. This is a pretty basic park, but the neighbors were nice. While we were there we did have a chance to spend an afternoon on a local Lake Michigan beach. There were lots of boaters and the water was calm.
On our way through Sandusky, Ohio we decided to stop and look at a boat for sale. We parked at a local Walmart and headed to the marina. Due to a mix up the broker was not able to get us in to see the boat we had planned to. We decided to just walk around the marina before we headed back to Walmart. We walked past a boat like the one we were planning to see the next day. The owner was sitting outside so Marc asked him about his boat. Well one thing lead to another and he and Marc found out they are in the same line of business and they hit it off right away. He and his wife invited us to move out camper to the parking lot at the marina. We spent a wonderful sunset with him, his wife and her daughter. The next day we all had lunch together. It just makes me smile to think of them. Things seem to work out like they are meant to be even if its not they way we plan them. We never were able to see the boat, but we did make some great friends.
We then made our way to the Kenisee Lake Thousand Trails. This campground was beautiful! We even borrowed at row boat and caught a few bass in the lake. While we were there we went to a beach at Lake Erie. This lake had a lot more waves than Lake Michigan. Cali and Marcus had a great afternoon in the warm water.
