For those of you who think I should rename this “The Pentwater Blog”, rest assured. This is my last post about Pentwater. For this year. There’s just a tiny bit more for the record.
First, I did mention in an earlier post that we would be using something on our travel trailer that we hadn’t used before. We were planning to use our outdoor grill for the first time. (We’ve had our camper a year and a half.) However, as you can tell from this picture, if we put the outdoor grill on, there was no place to stand. We would have had to stand on the “upper level” of our site (with the awning in) and bend down to the grill. That wouldn’t be very comfortable. Nor would it be very conducive to cooking correctly.
In addition, I am not sure if you can tell, but the fire ring was under our awning. So, we did not have any campfires either. We just felt the fire ring was too close to the camper. Even with not being able to use the outdoor grill or the fire ring, we still were very happy with our campsite. We got to avoid the harrowing experience of having to back in a travel trailer to a space where it looks to be not geometrically possible.
While it wasn’t the feature I originally had in mind, I did stay true to my word. We did use something for the very first time. Rather than the outdoor grill, it was the outdoor shower. We used it to rinse sand off our legs and feet. It worked great! Stay tuned for an upcoming, exciting report on our outdoor grill which I am hoping we use on our very next trip.
One thing we did do was celebrate Dan’s 70th birthday! In the morning, I took him out to breakfast. In the afternoon, we played Putt Putt at AJ’s with all the kids. In the evening, Danny and Jenn treated us all to dinner out at Gulls Landing. I am happy because I know Dan had a wonderful birthday!
While there’s even more I could say, I best end here. After all, God willing, there’s always next year.
