RV Adventures! “Campground Doug & Sandy” Day 3

Monday, September 7th, 2020 LABOR DAY

This morning Dave walked with Matilda and me around some of the lake. It was another beautiful morning for a walk.

After our walk, we started putting away the rest of our camping gear because we planned to be on the road close to noon so we would be ahead of the heavy traffic.

We enjoyed the rest of the morning enjoying the campfire and visiting with Doug and Sandy.

Matilda was more comfortable for part of our ride home! We’re still working on the timing of her medicine and the correct amount.

It was such a relaxing weekend of camping and we were so lucky that Doug & Sandy let us park in their yard. We really enjoyed the hospitality and we look forward to the next time!

It was just a gorgeous sunrise as Matilda and I walked around the area!

Our walk led us to the Indian Lake State Park Moundwood Marina and picnic area.

We enjoyed the area to ourselves. It was quiet, no people, boats motoring or people fishing.

Each morning we were thrilled to have our hosts join us in the RV for coffee/tea and conversation! It was relaxing and comfortable.

Matilda makes herself at home anywhere!

We volunteered to cook breakfast for everyone this morning. Our menu consisted of muffins, toast, hash browns, scrambled eggs, bacon, and pancakes! Dave is particular about making sure the griddle is level before I start cooking the bacon.

Making sure it’s level!

The campfire is already started for the day and evening!

The fire is going strong!

Breakfast turned out well and really ended up being brunch! We didn’t eat until dinner because we were so full. After we were finished our nephew took some of us for a boat ride. The lake was much smoother today. There wasn’t the wind like we had on Saturday but we still had great temperatures for camping and being outdoors!

“Camp Doug & Sandy” also has a golf cart that their “guests” can use! The facilities here are awesome. 😁

Matilda’s Aunt Kathy got her a Halloween bee outfit so she needed to model it for everyone to see and make sure it fit her! 😅 She’s such a cutie.

At 9:00 PM Indian Lake does a “Ring of Fire”. Volunteers set flares around the lake and it is held every Sunday of Labor Day weekend. We walked over to the lake to watch it. It is beautiful!

What a beautiful way to end the day!

RV Adventures! “Campground Doug & Sandy”

Saturday, September 5, 2020

With the pandemic, being safe and staying healthy is our priority! It was going to be a great weekend with the weather. Since it was last minute, we were trying to decide where we could go with the RV. “Campground Doug & Sandy” was open and had a perfect spot for us to camp on their property at Indian Lake! Doug and Sandy (our brother and sister-in-law) live in a beautiful home that sits on a beautiful lot near the lake.

Late Friday we brought the RV home from where we store it so we could load it with our belongings and food for the weekend. Saturday morning we walked the dog and got ready to head to Indian Lake. It’s about a hour’s drive from our home. Earlier in the morning the dog was given a relaxing pill to help her with riding in the RV.

Matilda is still nervous about riding in the RV!

We arrived at our “campground” and our hosts helped us locate the perfect spot for the weekend.

Not long after we set up and leveled the RV our nephew and great-nephew and his friend arrived for the day and over night. They were going to put up a tent with an inflatable bed but instead we got out our screen gazebo. The boys enjoyed playing inside it and laying on our hammock! It’s always so much fun to watch the kids enjoy the outdoors!

Relaxing for a short time!

There was still some work that needed to be completed and Matilda is so tired!

This afternoon Doug and Sandy took us for a ride on their pontoon boat. Our ride was quite short because it was really windy! The lake was very choppy and the wind broke the canopy that provides shade. The pictures below were taken in Dunn’s Pond which is a cove of Indian Lake. It was quiet and the water was tranquil! We didn’t take any pictures out on the rough lake because we didn’t want to lose our phone!

The evening ended with a campfire and the boys had the must have S’mores!
