Here we are all nestled in at Chalk Hills Campground, just west of Daggett Michigan. I spoke more about the campground in yesterday's blog. At the bottom of this blog is an "older blog" link to click on to bring you back to that one.
Friday afternoon, the other campers all started rolling on into the campground. Every single site was reserved. Although the sites are spaced far apart, you could see other campers here and there as they each rolled into their places. It was still nicely quiet, cuz people weren't yet gearing up for their weekend adventures. A lot of them had separate vehicles towing ATVs or UTV's (side-by-sides) vehicles. We were seeing more older folks unloading their rigs, and getting their sites set up. Not too many young ones or families.
In the morning, we woke up to a hazy cloudy foggy day. It felt cold and damp. I'm kind of glad we weren't paying to camp for another day or two because the weather was not cooperating. This was not forcast. Steve unhooked the power cord and got the jacks up, while Chelsea and I got the rig "roadworthy" on the inside.
Steve got right to work with son-in-law Waylen. They were putting up a wall under the stair case to make a closet. Then they planned to add insulation and drywall on parts of the actual exterior walls. The kids are converting a new garage unit into a complete cabin. The upstairs portion is already done, with lovely knotty pine and nice finishes. Now the main floor is the next task to take care of. They already added well, septic, and now the bathroom and kitchen areas are being dealt with.
Little Claire kept herself busy with all the cut off ends of the construction two-by-fours. Out of the shapes that she found, she made a cell phone for herself, complete with crayon drawn buttons for volume and on and off. She also drew little icons on the front of it and a camera lens on the back. She also made a school bus, and some slides for playground equipment for her little teddy bear. The round piece became a merry-go-round. Soon her whole playground was complete. My oh my, what an imagination!
