rustic camping

Monday, July 3, 2006


Jon and I headed over to PJ Hoffmaster State Park in Muskegon, MI for a few days of camping. We left on Friday night during rush hour - not so good planning on our part - but made it to the campsite while it was still dark out. We set up our tent and then headed to the beach for an evening stroll.

The campsite itself was packed - lots of decked out RV's complete with TVs and modern day amenities. Our site was close to the bathrooms, so the glow of the vending machines were a nice nightlight during our stay. It was great to be one with nature again.

On Saturday we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, some reading time and a visit to the Gilette Sand Dune Visitor Center. We walked along the boardwalks up to the top of the sand dune and then down to Lake Michigan. Afterward, we headed back to the campsite for lunch. We made some delicious sandwiches in our new sandwich makers - a nice break from hotdogs!

Jon's newest acquisition is his set of frisbee golf discs. He attempted to teach me how to throw a frisbee (unsuccessfully). We ended up calling our little game of catch quits because the discs (which are not meant to be caught) were bruising my hands and legs.

We succumbed to the vending machines after I realized that I had a roll of laundry quarters in my purse. As usual, we both got the Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars - delicious!

We packed up on Sunday morning and headed back to the east side of the state for Jon's mom's annual 4th of July barbecue.
