At the risk of sounding like a broken record, once again the mosquitoes at this campground were horrendous. But then again we have come to expect this when we come to the Saginaw Bay Recreation Area. On the up side, the park is close to home and easy for the non-campers in our group to come meet with us for the holiday.
Another positive thing about staying at this campground for the Fourth of July is the fireworks. Bay City has a truly great display of fireworks. It is a 3 day long event with the grand finale on the last night. It has been several years since we have attended the show. I forgot how spectacular it was to see.
On Friday one of our local TV reporters came through the park. I grabbed my HitchUpandGo hat and the cutest baby I could find ( my granddaughter, Arleigh) and headed to find the camera to get some free advertising. I have been told that we made it on-air but I have yet to see it.
On Saturday we all gathered for our annual potluck. As usual it was awesome. Good food and good friends, what more could one ask for?
