Family and Friends Visit in Phoenix, AZ.

When Lori and I started talking about full-time traveling the country in our RV, we both had dreamed of family and friends finding us to join in on the fun. We simply pick them up at the closest airport ( in this case, Phoenix, AZ.)  and hang out for a few days. We hope the dream continues and more join us! See you soon.

Phoenix Area Sightseeing and Stuff


Our site @ Royal Palms RV Resort.

While staying in the Phoenix area, we had the chance to visit the 8th annual Arizona Balloon Classic and Fireworks Show in Goodyear, AZ. What a great way to spend the evening!img_3703



Carefree, AZ. had there 25th annual Fine Arts and Wine Festival. Lots of great art and really good wine to check out.


North Mountain Park was close by, so a hike up the mountain always makes for a great day!img_3778


Located right across the street from our RV site is the Valley Metro Rail. A light rail system with 32 stations, it operates between the cities or Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa. So, we jumped on and went exploring!


We’re leaving Phoenix soon, heading up to Black Canyon City, AZ. For all those in the Polar Vortex, please stay safe. And remember, Spring will soon be there!

Arizona 2019

After enjoying an amazing holiday with family back home in Michigan, we have returned to warm, sunny Arizona. We’re looking forward to many more of these beautiful sunsets here.


We’re also looking forward to sharing our adventures with you all again! 2019 is going to be a good one.

Chicago, IL.

With almost 3 million residents, Chicago is the third most populous city in the US. It is a thriving, bustling city with many fun things to do. We are here to take care of our grandson, Luca while our daughter and son-in-law are in Europe for 10 days. So, our main focus is him. IMG_6338

He is such a good boy, making our time together very special.  56001402427__D284EDEA-95E3-4DEA-9EAB-89F4FEC654D3

While he’s in school, we get a chance to sightsee. IMG_6391







We’re having a great time here, enjoying every second with Luca.IMG_6539

Indiana Dunes State Park

Traveling towards Chicago, we stopped at this beautiful state park. Surrounded by Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on all four sides, we hiked and camped in the park.IMG_6271  The campground has wooded sites with hiking trails that lead right to the shore.IMG_6231 (3)

Chicago is just 47 miles away.IMG_6263

The stairs lead to Mt. TomIMG_6245

Butterflies were everywhere near the dunes.

We’re glad that this area is well preserved and will be enjoyed for years to come.




Michigan State Parks

On our way to Chicago, we traveled down the shoreline of western Michigan, wanting to stay at state parks along the way.IMG_6097

Interlochen State Park is a small 187 acre park nestled between Green Lake and Duck Lake.

Next to the park is Interlochen Center for the Arts. A beautiful campus for aspiring artists, this school draws students from all over the world.

We drove to Traverse City for the day and had lunch.


Mears State Park is smaller than Interlochen. Once owned by lumber baron Charles Mears, this 50 acre park was donated to the state in 1923.IMG_6103

We camped within walking distance to Pentwater, MI.

The gardens along the canal were colorful.


Holland State Park, at 142 acres, is a popular park that boasts 2 million visitors each year. Ottawa Beach has beautiful summer cottages that date back to the late 1800’s.IMG_6239IMG_3210

We hiked the Mt. Pisgah Dune. Standing at 157 ft. above Lake Michigan, getting to the top of this dune was easy. Just walk up a couple of hundred stairs and follow the boardwalk to awesome views.IMG_6187



Sunset @ Ottawa Beach, Holland MI.


Thank you, Michael and Susan for a wonderful dinner and sunset cruise around your lake.

Wilderness State Park, MI.

IMG_6004This large, 10,500 acre park offers 26 miles of shoreline. IMG_5992We stayed here for 5 days, enjoying the beautiful dunes along the shore.IMG_2971 It has over 16 miles of trails, 250 sites for camping, and is designated a dark sky preserve. IMG_6010


We drove to Mackinaw City to check out the Mackinaw Bridge.IMG_3041

With a total length of 5 miles, this bridge is the longest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.


There’s a little village just outside of town that we came across. The old turn of the century buildings were easy to photograph because of the beautiful weather.


The sunsets are very easy to relax to.IMG_3000


Wilderness State Park is our favorite Michigan state park!IMG_3120
