Dog Days of Fall?

We enjoyed going about a month earlier then last year, the weather was perfect and the park was not to overly busy. We had great neighbors on both sides and even tho we didn’t have a waterfront site, we did enjoy our views from across the “street”

So we took our annual trek up to Aune Osborn last month for a week.

We took a most beautiful drive up to Whitefish Point along the lake, taking us thru several small villages and Bay Mills, the sights were amazing and we have decided that is the ONLY way to drive up there. We have visited Whitefish Point several times over the years, both Bruce and I are shipwreck buffs and have a special place in our hearts for the Edmund Fitzgerald. Each year they have a anniversary memorial on November 10th to mark the sinking, we have never been to this but Bruce wants to go up for it next year, this will be very moving.

We also enjoyed several “new” recipes that I acquired prior to our trip. For some reason I always like trying to make new things when we go camping, all which I might add, were very successful.

You might wonder why I titled this post “Dog Days of Fall?” Well, we cut our trip short by one day so that the next evening we could go pick up the newest member of the Bailey Clan….. this little cutie right here….


His name is Duke, he is a blue great dane and in this picture he is 7 weeks old. Duke was born on July 15th, 2019 in Vicksburg, Michigan. We visited him several times before bringing him home. We anticipate some great adventures with Duke and are enjoying the journey so far.

Next year Duke will be our camping buddy. We so look forward to our many excursions with him.
