Iowa to New York

We are now sitting on the Shore of Lake Erie.
The sound of the waves lapping the shore lull us to sleep and the cool
breeze off the lake takes the edge off of the days heat.

After leaving Iowa we spent one night outside of Chicago at the
Hollywood Casino RV Park in Joliet.
I was surprised - it was a pleasant place to spend the night.
The park had grass and trees,  Water and 50amp service.

Kates BFF Mary came to visit and spend the night in the Party Bus.
A good time was had by all.

The next day we moved 4hrs east to Maumee Bay State Park near
Toledo, Ohio.

This was our second visit here.

This time we spent two days over Memorial day weekend. (Sun & Mon).

Kate, Ron & Maxine went to visit the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mi
on Monday while I stayed behind and got some office work done.

The Henry Ford is a very impressive Museum. 
We also visited it on our last stop here.   

Our site (149) at Maumee Bay SP

Today we moved 4 1/2hrs east to Dunkirk, NY and are now at
Lake Erie State Park.
Our sites are prime locations - about 100' above the lake with
a westerly view out over Lake Erie.
Ron is on the left and we are on the right in site 13.
We have 50amp service. 
The park also has a potable water fill and dump station.

Another view from our site. 

Sunset from our back yard.

The smell of a distant campfire lends a nice accent to the sunset.

Kate sits and enjoys the setting sun.

We will spend two nights here and then move east across NY
to the Lake George / Capital Region where we used to live.


  1. Hope the Doodles did some of that driving for you!

  2. So peaceful! Enjoy NY, safe travels


  3. So happy to hear Mary was able to visit you in the RV! Looking forward to seeing you two soon. Margie

  4. I have never been here either, but my boating friends spend their summers there and love the camping around the lake. Beautiful photos and always great history background.
