Well – not quite our own backyard . . . . but very close! Our favorite Ohio State Park, Harrison Lake, is only 57 miles from us. With tall trees, lots of shade, and plenty of grass, it was a perfect setting for a little mid-week get-away! And, after 5 days of steady rain and cool temperatures – we were ready to do something to celebrate the next few days of sunshine and warmth.
We were in no rush Tuesday morning, and our only goal was to show up at the campground and set up in time for lunch. Although there were lots of empty campsites during the week-day, we still had to make sure that our chosen spot would not be occupied until Friday. Our favorite spot -- #118 – was available and we were all settled in and eating grilled sandwiches by 12:00!
Here are some shots of our campsite.
We took the dogs for a walk, and then hit the reclining chairs . . . with books! The reading led to a bit of napping, and the napping recharged us for a longer walk. That was the entire agenda for afternoon.
Here are a few pictures from our walks throughout the day.
Here are some pictures of our Jasper and Charlie enjoying the campground with us.
And the most important picture of all . . . relaxing in my "0-G" chair.
Wednesday was more of the same. Ditto for Thursday. I took pictures of the cabin and the Yurts, and a campground host gave us a tour of each. We took special notice of their accessibility for a future spring campout with Caleb and Halie – never too early to start planning for 2019!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
