6/21/13 Friday at Stockbridge, MI (Heartland Woods RV Resort-RPI-$10/night)
The weather is getting hotter and more humid..it must be summer in Michigan.
After doing our normal morning chores, we did a few extra: John filled the batteries and cleaned the jacks while I cleaned the MW filters and air conditioner intake vent filters. Grocery shopping next. After lunch we packed for our stay at Judy’s, even bringing in the bedroom slide because some storms were predicted. Then we parked ourselves in our chairs outside, to soak in the woods while waiting for a call from Judy. I swear, the minute I was fully settled in, she texted that we could come, now. Wow, was I ever grateful that John had insisted we get ready before relaxing!
On our way we had a close call with a Turkey on the road. I updated our 6/19 blog with the animals we almost hit on the road that day. This is not typical in our neck of the woods (Spokane, WA). John managed to hit a few deer when he was working with the ambulance company and I know a friend who hit a Moose, but we don’t seem to have so many smaller critters running over the road. Never opossums (see them the most here) or armadillos of course!
When we arrived, Judy had projects in mind for us to help with (very minor – so glad to be of service). We drove to her friends’ home, Adyan and Chris, where we all piled into our Honda and headed out to El Potrero in Owosso. Fabulous food! Everything is excellent. The best shrimp I’ve had in ages. Plus we had the most wonderful conversation (or maybe that’s because I talked so much?)!
Later they showed us their lovely, 100 year old home. It’s so large, yet they’ve done amazing things with paint as well as sanding and staining the hardwood floors.
Finally, we came back to Judy’s place in East Lansing, MI, enjoying more conversation, then settling in for the night.
