This campground has a section down along the flood plain of the Ohio River, where campsites back right up to the river, with a high-enough bank for a great view of the river activity, and here we set up camp.
Alan was first to arrive (Carie arrived on Friday), followed by Tom and me, Lou and Larry, John and Suzie, and Steve and Cindy. The temperature was in the low 80’s with a very brisk breeze, and the setting was perfect for an afternoon lawn-chair gabfest overlooking the Ohio River. Conveniently in our midst was a big shelter house, and we staked claim on that for all our casual meal gatherings . . . and a place to sit-out the few sprinkles that moved through the area.
The big business of the days was campfire-sitting and barge-watching. Both took place on beautiful green grass high on the river bank.
One entertaining interlude took place at the neighboring campsite when three little boys found a large mud puddle temptingly in the middle of their campsite. Mom and Dad were tolerant as they discovered the fun of their own muddy slip-and-slide made by nature. I'll leave you with pictures of three little boys having the time of their life!
Our next planned outing is the Haydocy rally where we camp right on the dealership lot. Check back for the details about that great venue.
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!
