Day 32-August 6, 2014-Still in St. Ignace, Michigan

Watched the lake go from silver this morning when it was a bit overcast to watching a gleaming white sailboat on an azure blue lake while eating dinner at the campsite.

Didn’t have to rush to get anywhere today.  Harry got a haircut, we went to the car wash and got the truck washed.  Took a nice drive along Lake Huron, went into Straights State Park, right on Lake Huron-really nice campsites and a great view of the bridge. Found the only grocery store around and did some stocking up.  Back to the campground for lunch and read outside for a while.  It’s really quiet at our site, nobody around us. I got a new book The Attack at Michilmackinac, about the travels and capture by Indians of Alexander Henry in 1760, supposed to have history about this area-sounded interesting when I bought it but I haven’t started it yet.  We looked at maps and have a general idea of where we’re going in the near future, but it’s always negotiable.

Then there’s the casino down the road.  The campground owners told us nobody ever wins there but this afternoon was Harry’s hurrah-we came out ahead by $225 in less than an hour.  And it was American Wednesday.  If you’re American on Wednesdays you get a free hot dog, double points all day and $10 in free play after you’ve gotten 100 points.  So we got a hot dog and paid for a drink with our points and walked around and watched other people.  Spent some time watching Roulette, trying to understand it but I don’t think I could ever get it.  I don’t even really know how the slots work.  Went back to the campsite and looked at some campground books, had dinner, then a nice fire. Leaving tomorrow.  St. Ignace was a great stop.  We really enjoyed this leg of our jouney.
