7/12/13 Friday at St Clair, MI (St Clair-TT)
Another gorgeous day. Funny, they were mostly like this back in Spokane. You sure do appreciate the good ones when you don’t have them most of the time!
I spent the morning on the computer. We got a “certificate” for a week in a condo, so we are now signed up for a week at Hilton Head, SC just after Thanksgiving. Should be fun! Also got my email and notes (RV businesses tips from neighbors) completed. Good feeling.
After lunch we went to Lexington, MI which is north of Port Huron, MI.
There we went to “Wimpy’s Place and enjoyed chili burgers (plus cheese and grilled onions, with a side order of onion rings) for $7.70 total. I thought mine was very tasty, John said his was okay. They were not all that large. The teenagers cooking and serving were lots of fun to watch. It was a small diner, with friendly folks all around. The owner manned the cash register, only taking payment in cash.
The family of swans who greeted us as we walked onto the Lexington Harbor Jetty.
Looking out towards Lake Huron as we walk out on the Jetty. We met a man who had been a trucker and saw lots of our country, so we had a good time sharing thoughts on National Parks (his favorites: Bryce & Zion). Before we left him, I got an image of a beautiful sailboat out on Lake Huron. When we returned to shore, we ambled through the nearby park, then on back towards town and our car.
On the way we found ourselves walking in the “Anson Simons Neighborhood Historic District”, so I have to share photos of a couple of the homes. Many homes are like this, although usually smaller. Many have front porches, even though this is not the South. Okay, the last is not a house, but I couldn’t resist. You can just see John rolling his eyes as I stop to take this photo.
In time, we left, doing some grocery shopping and stopping at an auto parts store for a strut replacement. The employee searched for a long time, finally suggesting we try at the local RV places. We were tired and pretty sure they couldn’t help, so we just came on home. After supper we took a nice, brisk walk around the campground, coming upon Bill and Marie near our rig. They were just looking for us. She wanted to see our RV, so we all came inside Miss Zanzibar, admired her roominess, then got to visiting until 9:45! At that point I noted that it was getting late, so we parted.
