Sunsets in the Upper Peninsula

RWC_4218

The sunsets in this part of the United States last a long, long time. From roughly 8:30pm to almost 10:00pm, the sky comes alive with wonderful vibrant colours.

The evening sky sets the coach ablaze with reflections of the cool light.

This is where we take in the sunset.

Petoskey Motorcoach Resort Part Two

RWC_4004

Here are a few photos from our stay at the Petoskey Motorcoach Resort. I’m hoping that these pictures will give you a sense of the place, a treasure in the upper peninsula of Michigan.

This is one of my favourite shots so far, a shot of Bob’s 2016 Dutch Star. He has a 4369 which looks almost the same as our 4002 — just a tad longer as it is a 43-foot coach. I caught his coach just as he was leaving the resort.

There isn’t a bad site in the park. I really like this one, site 45, with a large area to the patio side of the coach.

The premium sites face the various water treatments of the park. We were originally booked into site 5 below. However, our neighbours, all the way from Houston, Texas, loved this park so much that they extended their stay for a month.

We had to make do with site 4.

Let’s take a bit of a tour around site 4. Starting with the view from the inside of the coach. All windows open and every sightline is a great sightline.

This is what we look at in front of our coach.

And from our patio side.

I have been doing quite a bit of photography and I take my laptop and my camera outside. This is what my office looks like for post-processing, email and blogging.

I could get very used to this life.

One Thousand Islands

RWC_3846

I have not counted them one by one. That said, according to reputable sources, there are 1,864 islands in the thousand islands region.

We are almost at the end of our first trip with the Castaway and, with a few minor exceptions, we had a very successful breaking in of the coach.

Here are a few shots of the campground and the marina directly across the street from the campground.

More on our first experience with the coach in the next few days.
