Summer Fun at Silver Lake

From Empire, we travelled south on US-31 along the coast for about 100 miles.  Our next destination was Silver Creek RV Resort at Silver Lake.  This is another of our favorites – the kids especially like going to the dunes and all of the summer “hangouts” in town

We were on site 100 – a nice site at the end of the road by the pool.

Site 100

We’ve always thought that these would be great sites to have – backing in is a piece of cake because you have the whole side road to work with – but as we found out this week, the wifi is pretty weak on these sites.  We’ve been having connection issues all week, and we have almost no Verizon signal in the campground at all.

Oh well, it’s been beautiful all week, so who needs to be online. Smile

As we walked through the RV Park, we thought we must have walked in a circle without realizing it . . .

Wait -- that's not our RV!

but wait a minute . . . we don’t have a red Jeep! 

Yep, it’s another X-Aire . . . not something we see everyday!  We met the owners later in the week, and had a great visit, touring each others’ rigs . . . they are the same year, so they are a lot the same, even though the floorplan is slightly different.

We had beautiful weather all week, and were able to spend time at the beach, where the water was freezing cold still,

and in the pool, where the water was warm!

We also visited some of our favorite Silver Lake locations – Little Sable Lighthouse,          Little Sable Lighthouse

the Pizza Factory for dinner one night, ice cream at Tasty Creations and the new Cosmic Candy Company!

All the boys’ favorites!!









Yep, it was a perfect summer weekend!

Summer fun!

Our last stop was Craig’s Cruisers . . .

because we can’t ever come to Silver Lake (or any other vacation destination) without a trip to the go-cart track!

Bryce rounded up some friends to go with them (because it’s always more fun with a group!), and they all had a blast!

The kids had fun, and it was a great way to end the week! 

We also had a couple of new experiences here at Silver Lake, but those will get their own blog posts!

Tomorrow we head back to our old hometown, and we’ll stay 2 weeks at Haas Lake Campground -- the same campground where we spent our very first month of fulltiming.
