Jun 13, 2018 - Relaxing on the Thumb

The place to go if you want to relax is "The Thumb". It's quiet. There are no crowds or traffic. I picked Lighthouse Park from an internet search and its turned out to be a winner. The area reminds me of the Florida Panhandle away from Destin and the other hot spots. The campground was a good base for photo exploration along the Lake Huron coast. The Pointe Aux Barques Lighthouse was the center of my interest. I was able to get a couple of awesome shots of the lighthouse and the Milky Way. When I posted the shot on Facebook, the people from...

Jun 9, 2018 - To The Thumb

I finished working on Thursday and we headed north on Friday morning. We made an overnight stop in Bowling Green, OH at Fire Lake Camperground. When we arrived at our campsite, the sky was looking like it might spawn a tornado. We wound up getting some bands of heavy rain, but luckily no tornado or strong winds. We were parked across the road from a horse farm and there were about 6 or 8 horses out grazing and munching on hay. Sue was fascinated with the activities of the horses. As the rain started there was one horse that seemed to want...

Jul 25, 2017 - Lighthouse County Park

On Monday we drove south on route 21 along the east shore of Lake Huron, made a slow crossing of the border, and then drove north on route 25 along the west shore of Lake Huron. We made a stop at Meijer's in Port Huron to stock up on some groceries. We are now parked in a really nice county park about six miles west of Port Hope, MI. We have a full hookup with 50 amps, a clear view of the Directv satellite, and really good wifi. The only minor issue is, as was true in Sauble Beach, we cannot get a strong signal on one of the TV satellites...

Jun 16, 2010 - The Thumb of Michigan

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week thumbing around this part of Michigan. We won’t go into the gory details but because of the size and weight of our RV, we couldn’t get into the campground where we were suppose to stay just north of Port Hope. [We left them some nice, deep ruts to remember us by!] However the supervisor for all the Huron County Parks told of us of one site at the campground right in Port Hope that should be able to take our weight. We went back down the road to Stafford County Park and were able to just get into the site....
