Over the summer we ended up spending three weeks in Washburn, Wisconsin because we happened upon a county campground on Lake Superior that suited us so well. After only a few days here in Bonita Springs, Florida, I’m thinking this place hits some of the same sweets spots.
This is Liz’s camper. She’s lived here for ten years; before that she and her husband travelled the U.S. and Europe.
This is the spot between Liz and us. She invited us to enjoy the chairs and view anytime.
We don’t need to take her up on that though, because we have our own good spot. A paved and private front yard.
And a wild back yard.
We watch the herons and egrets, the sunset. I workout in privacy behind the trailer. Banjo sunbathes. We eat lunch at the picnic table together, watching the sunlight through the Spanish miss. This is good.
I never thought I’d say this, but I’m digging the extras here. A heated pool!
An empty dog park.
Launching the kayaks within a short walk. (Tracy went to scout it out; his report is a thumbs-up.)
A Nearby Walkable Town
I rode my bike to the post office this morning and Tracy rode to buy fresh fish for lunch. And I hear from Google Maps there’s a brewery within biking distance with a huge beer garden. We said we’d stay away from commercial places like that, but the pictures of the beer garden make it look like a football field. Maybe we’ll do a bike-by.
You add up a relaxed community, large(ish) campsites, people who live here instead of go crazy on the weekend here, privacy, a happy dog, full hook-ups, mail service, and corn-hole across the street, and we may be hard-pressed to leave.
We chose to stay three weeks on Lake Superior; we have three weeks left in our reservation here. Let’s see if finding ways to enjoy a static spot pays off as well as choosing a place for just as long.
And if that’s not confusing enough, you should see our plans for after Christmas!
