Camping in November? Yes, please!

I can honestly say that I've never camped in November until this year. We were pleasantly surprised by the Michigan weather this fall and were able to squeeze out one last camping weekend. It was hard to find a campground open at this time of year, but luckily Sterling State Park in my hometown of Monroe, Michigan was still open for one more weekend.

We packed up and headed out right after work and arrived just in time to get situated on site 31 just before dark. There were about 40 other campers taking advantage of the great November weather. It was a little chilly at night, but nothing that the nice roaring fire couldn't help. On Saturday, we took a long walk on the beach followed by a bike ride along the paved path. We also visited with my parents since we were in town and my brother came out to the park and joined us for coffee on Saturday morning too. It was nice surprise although he got us out of bed....LOL!

I cannot believe that another camping season has come to a close! I will always say that we didn't get to camp enough, but this season seems like we really didn't. Now, the Pod is all winterized and packed away for another Michigan winter in the barn.  We are counting down the days until we hit the road next spring!

We really needed this fire to keep
us toasty warm at night!

Lake Erie Love!

We couldn't ask for a more beautiful fall in Michigan!
