After spending two nights in Cedarville, MI, we headed back along the southern part of the UP. We stopped at a park in Escanaba for a few nights. It was right on the Escanaba River, not that you could really see it though. Our site was very large and sandy, our back levels had to have been down 5 Inches in the sand and it was impossible to properly level, but we made it through it ok. The park itself seemed to be a big party destination for a lot of folks so we packed up yesterday and headed south of Escanaba, about 20 miles to another park right on Lake Michigan.
It’s a small place with some really nice camp hosts. We chose to forgo the luxury of 50 amp service and took a 30amp site that is right across from the beach. It’s almost like looking out at the ocean, you can’t see any land or boats passing by. The beach is sandy and a little mucky, they had recently just leveled it out. However you can walk out over 100 yards and only be in water up to your knees. It’s as warm as bath water. Yesterday there were two Sandhills cranes on the edge of the beach, a family of swans swimming in the area and lots of other birds I don’t recognize. Even saw a dead pine snake! Ewe! Last night was clear, although humid. You could see every star in the sky!
This morning we woke up and it was hot! Last I looked, 91! That doesn’t seem like much to those of you who have been living with this and much worse heat, but it’s the first we’ve had. Blew the circuit breaker about 15 min ago. Running both air conditioning units and the fridge puts us at 27 amps , so there isn’t much more we can plug in or operate. But it will cool of in a few hours and be fine. Good time to catch up on some reading.
Next post will have pictures! STAY COOL!!
