Last day at Brookville Lake & Move to Shelbyville Lake, IL

Tuesday was our last day at Brookville Lake and we were just taking it easy.  Nicolas and I took a run in the morning to pick up some homegrown corn from the local market.


We picked up some delicious corn, tomatoes, green beans and melon from Denny.

Back at the beach after lunch, it was a lot quieter than on the weekend, and the water even felt cooler.


Tom scans the beach for the best place to sit.

We had some fun in the water and worked on our tans for awhile, and I got to spend some time reading.

Back at the RV, I started dinner while Tom relaxed and the boys played cards.


Tom talks to his dad while Casey relaxes under the camper.


We’ve played lots of cards this week, and even gotten Tom to join us!

After dinner, we got a lot of the outside cleaned up and ready for the move, so we could get an early start in the morning. 


Tom takes care of the stinky job!

We woke up to find it nice and cool in the morning, and the boys got right to work getting the bikes and chairs put away.  It’s definitely easier to get ready for a move to another campground than it is to go “home”!  The clothes and the beds and the food all just stay where they are, rather than getting packed up to go back in the house – we could get used to this!


Casey is ready to move on – and she makes sure that she isn’t going to be left behind!

By 9am, we were all hooked up and ready to head west to Illinois.  We took I-74 to Indianapolis and then picked up I-70 to Effingham.  We stopped at a Walmart to re-stock some groceries before heading north on IL-32 to Sullivan and the Forrest W. Bo Wood COE campground.

Our friend, Todd, with his kids – Josh and Kylie – had arrived just a few minutes before us, so we both took care of getting set up and settled into our sites.


Right now there are just a few other RVs in this section, but it’ll fill up by the weekend!

We’re in a brand new section of the campground (just opened this summer) with full hookup and really long pull-through sites, but that also means no shade at all and not a lot of grass.  We are oriented so that we get afternoon shade from the RV itself, so that’s not too bad . . . and the electric is good so the A/C is cranked up!

It’s supposed to be hot this weekend, so I’m sure we’ll spend plenty of time at the beach . . . but hopefully we’ll be able to do some hiking too, and check out some geocaches in the area.
