Our morning was just beautiful as we woke up at Rainbow Falls Rossport Campground. This was our view out the front of the rig as we greeted the day...
I whipped us up a quick breakfast in these little microwave crocks. They had been advertised on TV a couple years ago, called Stone Wave. My friend Linda found them at a chain of Dollar Tree stores for a dollar each. So we grabbed some for the house and some for the motorhome.
Yep, 181 stairs to get back up to the parking area. If you figure an average of 13 stairs per story that makes it 14 stories to walk up to get back to the top of the waterfalls!!!
We headed back over to the campground in the lower portion of the Rossport park. We chatted with some folks nearby who lo and behold were also a weaver and a spinner from Iowa. She looked up my blog and said she's going to become a regular reader.
Now I hopped in the Tracker with my laptop and headed back into Rossport to find that wifi signal. It's in a parking lot near a bed and breakfast, next to a sail boat that is dry docked. I was posting the blog from day 8. A gentleman came out of a nearby driveway and asked what I was doing, and I said using the signal to post my blog. He said that was fine and have a nice day!
By the time I got back to the park, Steve was able to drive our rig over to the potable water station and top off our tank. It was a slow fill, but we only needed about 25 gallons added to the 75 we had in the tank. Now we are back up to 100 gallons, never know where we will be next and it is nice to take on fresh water when we can find it.
We drove further east and meandered through some really pretty countryside. Very hilly in this portion of our route. We saw a fox dash across in front of us, but still no moose yet. (at least live ones)
Someone suggested on Facebook that we boondock overnight at Pebble Beach, which is on the residential end of town. We drove down there, but the location didn't feel quite right. There was a motorcycle parked there, but the place seemed kinda remote and uncomfortable.
We had seen a sign as we came into town for a campground run by the city called Penn Lake. What the heck, we could go and check that out too. Wow... what a nice place!!!!

Sites 10 and 11 are the BEST in the park! The only two RV sites with water views. In our opinion, site number 11 is great for fifth wheels with big open back windows.... and site 10 is great for motorhomes as the view is out alongside of the windows on the passenger side. We talked to the nice fulltiming folks on site 10 who put their truck into site 11 for us to hold it until we got back. We rushed back in the Tracker to drop Steve off to drive the rig over. I registered for the site and paid $45 CN for a site with electric, water, sewer, cable and wifi! (after exchange it is about $36)
We popped some chicken breasts on the grill, whipped up some salads and baked some more white potatoes. It tasted as good as it looks, that is for sure.
The reflection on the smooth water surface was like a mirror!
