Golf, saying Goodbye, and, On the Road Again

August 18, 2013   

This will be a short Blog as we didn't take any pictures.  We were having too much fun visiting!

Sunday August 18th we met Kenny and Phyllis at their house around 10:45 am ready to play some golf.  This was my 3rd time playing in the past year and Patty’s first in 3 years.  We played at the club (Atlas Valley Country Club) that Kenny and Phyllis belong to.

I’ll leave out much of the ugly details of mine and Patty’s play; however we warmed up after the first 9 and were better on the back 9.  The course is very nice and has some challenging holes.  The 18th hole has the most sloped green I think I have ever played.  We had a great time and I only lost 3 balls!

After golf we went to a local dairy farm (Cook's) that sells ice cream.  We all had some very fresh ice cream to finish off the golf part of the day.

We went back to Kenny and Phyllis’ house for dinner and cocktails again.  Kim and her kids Emerson and Dawson joined us for dinner in the back yard.  Again, grille master Kenny served up some great Chicken and grilled corn on the cob with lime butter.  Then around 9:30 we said our goodbyes and we headed off for our campsite.

We want to thank Kenny and Phyllis for being such great hosts!  You guys were too good, we may be back! 

This picture was taken a few years ago at Patty's Aunt Carols 75th Birthday.  This a good part of Patty's family in this picture.  This picture was "found" on Kenny and Phyllis' fridge.

This marks the end of our summer family and friends visit. We started this chapter at the end of May with the Grandkids in Disney World and ended here with Uncle Kenny and Aunt Phyllis in Clarkston, MI.  Now, for the next 3 months we will be on another adventure heading through the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North/South Dakota, Montana, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and then to Texas.

We are going to winter this year in south Texas.  We will park and store the rig in Texas at the end of November and fly back to Indiana/New York/New Jersey to visit for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Then back to South Texas for 3 months until it gets warm again up North.

Tomorrow we leave the Pontiac Lake Recreation Park Campground and head north to West Branch MI.  It should be a short and easy haul.

Stay Tuned!
