Saturday, July 18 – We finished our tour of the Michigan UP this morning and headed south across the Mackinac Bridge. We really enjoyed everything the last two weeks in the UP except the mosquitoes the past several days. They were ferocious!
Darn if Paul didn't leave our water pressure regulator at the Newberry HighCountry Campground. Those things ain't cheap! We use to use a checklist before leaving, but after six years we think we know it all.....ha ha! Guess a big note on the hose storage box may be the answer.
We don't usually stop to tour anything “in-route” but we wanted to stop at Bronner's Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, MI. We pulled in about noon (there is plenty of RV parking) and spent 90 minutes exploring this Christmas Wonderland. Amazing all the ornaments and Christmas decorations they sell. Actually they have over 50,000 trims and gifts for sale in the store which is 1 ½ football fields in size. Of course, Marsha found a couple small ornaments she plans as giving as gifts.
We did drive through Frankenmuth. It looks like a nice town for strolling among the shop and possibly enjoying some German food. The parking lots were packed. It would have been difficult to find an RV parking space.
We ended the day at the Wayne County Fairgrounds, in Belleville, MI right outside Dearborn. We are in RV site #90. Even though they have FHUs, we chose just electric (30 amp) and water. The roads are paved but the sites are grass. Plenty long, but you share a pedestal with the neighbor. That would make it pretty close for comfort if things got crowded. We are not really concerned. We are only here for three nights and most of the time we will be out touring. The people working in the office are very nice and work to make your stay enjoyable. The fairground is very accessible from the freeway. The campground is tucked back in a corner away from all the activity. They are a Good Sam’s campground.
We are now back in Canton, Ohio. We will finish up our Michigan tour blogging in the next two posts.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
