RV Adventures with Bug Smacker

Tag: beach

We had a wonderful time in Traverse City again this year. The kids ran in the Bayshore Marathon. The grandkids played on the beach. Terri and I got to sit back and unwind a little. We all had a splendid weekend. This year we were extremely sad to see that our favorite BBQ joint, Ham-Bonz was no longer in business. This place offered some of the best pulled-pork and pit-ham you could find anywhere. This will also be the last time we will be visiting The Underground Cheesecake Company. We …

This year our trip to Ocean Lakes was scheduled later in the season. This time the pool was open daily instead of just on weekends. It is great to be able to grab a tube and float down the lazy river as the warm sun beats down on you. What a relaxing time this is. Better yet, all the holiday crowd has gone home now and left the pool all to ourselves. While we were in town we hit all the normal dining spots, like Nacho Hippo, The Original Benjamin’s, …

A couple of weeks ago it became a reality when Terri was lucky enough to be on the reservation website and catch a cancelation as it occurred.    Harrisville State …

Once again we find ourselves enjoying “Life at the Beach”. It is no wonder why we love this place so much and find ourselves coming back year after year after year.

When we arrived here Terri and I looked at each other and remarked how it felt like we were home now.       We enjoy getting a campsite right up front on the ocean. That way we can enjoy the sounds of the waves …

Just another day in paradise as I sit down to write this post. I can’t believe that we have been here almost 2 weeks now. They say “time flies when you are having fun”. In this case, that is truly an understatement. The first couple of days here at Ocean Lakes the weather was a bit rocky. There was a storm passing through and with the rain came the wind. Following the storm, the days just kept getting better. In fact, it got to be quite summer like around here. Some …
