Bark River, Michigan – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 57 miles north from Menominee to Bark River, Michigan. We are here visiting Mary’s long-time friend Bernice. We expect to depart here on Sunday.

When we arrived yesterday it was 108 degrees in the sun with 52% humidity!  YUK!!!

Bernice has 400 acres with a home a mile down a dirt road off of the county paved road…

Along the way you pass this old house…



And finally arrive at her house…


Nope…it’s not broken. It’s for real!!!


We settled in front of an old barn…


Here’s the usual dinette window photo…


About 8:00 PM last evening we had a heavy-duty thunderstorm with lightning which lasted about 1/2 hour. After it was over, this was the sky looking east…


And this was the sky looking west…


And the sky looking east again at 6:30 AM this morning…


After the storm the temperature had dropped to 68 degrees…very refreshing after the heat of the day. This morning at 6;30 AM it was 64 degrees with 96% humidity! YUK once again!

Enjoying visiting old friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
