After Cedar Point, we stopped by Sandusky, Michigan, to have our motorhome serviced and some new shocks installed for our imminent journey south. We are now at the Jackson, Michigan Elks lodge and will be here until Thursday. And then it’s back to Ohio and on to West Virginia before a “rest” stop in Knoxville, Tennessee. We’ll keep ya posted! Hugs all around, Chuck and Kalyn
The Thousand Islands area is truly as diverse as money allows and you will see homes on the various islands ranging in size from this . . .
Next, we headed to Thousand Islands Park for a boat tour of the St. Lawrence Seaway and a land tour of seedy saloons that would only admit our group with an up front cash deposit. (As it turns out, these guys had visited some of these same watering holes in years past and made an indelible impression on the local barmaids!) The locals bring their livestock indoors whenever word leaks that these guys are in town. . .
All the way up to this . . .
Welp! It’s hard to believe but it’s once again that time of month (curb the evil thoughts!). Time for an update, of course!! After leaving the peace and serenity of Niagara Falls, we traversed the "ribbon of black" to Rochester and our date with destiny; better known as my brother-in-law’s Army Reunion. Rochester turned out to be quite an interesting part of the country with lots of interesting things to do. We visited the home field of the local “AAA” baseball team, took a boat ride on the Erie Canal, toured the William Jefferson Clinton Memorial Ghetto in an air conditioned armored car and saw some of the 150 fiberglass horses that were decorated by local artists (they will eventually be sold to support local charities).

Kalyn and I decided that the smaller of the two might be closer to our price range. And so, after a week with my brother-in-law and his playmates, we once again continued our journey westerly and spent a couple of days at Cedar Point, Ohio. This amusement park has 14 roller coasters and an RV park that puts you just minutes from the front gate. We spent 2 days riding sit-down, stand-up and feet-dangle steel track and wooden framed roller coasters . . .
We would have stayed longer but the $60 per day camping fees really put a dent in our $25 per month camping budget. The RV park was well worth the expense and Cedar Point is certainly worth a visit if you enjoy this kind of entertainment and this view from your campsite . . .
