Camping Trip 09/26-28/05
So, we had a great and relaxing time camping at VanBuren State Park, near South Haven, Michigan. This is our nifty little pop-up camper that we pull behind the BYB. It's an amazing piece of engineering. Under the cover are our folding chairs and a variety of other gear.

Inside, we have a double bed (air mattress on top of the foam pad that came with the camper), and a double-bed-sized dressing area. The zipped-on screen room more than doubles the size of the camper, and has privacy panels that can be Velcro-ed to the screen.

We had a little rain early Saturday morning, and beautiful weather the rest of the weekend. It cleared off early and the sun shone all day. We met our son and his wife up there. Nici's step-dad has a boat moored at South Haven, and he took us for a rather bouncy ride out on Lake Michigan Saturday afternoon. It was Nick's 26th birthday. The kids came out to the campground Saturday evening and had supper with us. Sunday we met them and had lunch and played miniature golf before heading home.
