Last week I forgot to mention our Passport America RV park (with no restrictions) called Stop and Dock Marina and RV Park in Two Rivers, WI. I told Chuck I would critique his park in my blog so better late than never. With only 18 (all FHU) sites, it is located on the shore of a small tributary of Lake Michigan and had been a bustling fish camp at one time. Then the level of the lake dropped drastically from a COE project up north over ten years ago. The corp. is trying to correct the problem and the water is rising finally so now it is four feet higher than it has been for years and the owner rented a slip to a big boat for the first time in years while we were there. Needless to say, he was very happy. We had a perfectly clear shot at the southern sky for our Datastorm satellite with little street noise. There are several “seasonals” but they were quiet without a lot of coming and going and believe it or not, no trains within earshot. Aside from the war Phil had to wage against the tiny little black ants that had their hills EVERYWHERE it was a very comfortable home base for us and the price was right for our week on the river.
While in Two Rivers, Phil chartered a fishing boat and went fishing on Lake Michigan. The boat went out at dawn and he was home with his limit by 10:30 am! He had a great time and our freezer is full of Lake Michigan salmon and one good-size trout. It is delicious. We had a knock on the door the night before and Jan invited us next door to visit and meet her husband Richard. We went over to their beautiful Foretravel Coach, had a nice visit and exchanged e-mails. They are on a summer trip from Oklahoma and we gave her this blog address. Jan had found us through the SKPs website where Phil actively comments and makes note of our location. She said she told Richard, “It has to be Phil and Joy right next door!” And it was :)! Great fun and the very first time in five years that it has happened. Oh yes, we gave them a nice chunk of salmon when Phil got home from fishing which according to Jan’s e-mail a day or two later, they really enjoyed.
Until next time,
