From Kennebec, SD

I can’t remember if I had mentioned that the campground we stayed at last night was Blue Earth Campground.  Nice place!  And the hosts were Sean and Marian.  Nice people!  We stopped on our way out to dump our garbage and Sean came out to wish us well.  I gave him a Christian hug.  I don’t think he was expecting that, but he didn’t object.

From Wausau, WI

After four years of moving around, we have finally learned that we need to make our first day a shorter drive than any of the others.  This is because there is always more to do to get going than we anticipate, and because we stop on our way to load up with paper plates, plastic ware and easy food for the trip.  We have to put everything on our counters (both bathroom and kitchen) into the sinks so it won’t fall on the floor while we are on the road.  Thus, the need for paper plates!

End of season staff party

Today all the campers were supposed to be out of here by noon.  Mark and I needed to gather up any of the liquids we worked with that might freeze and put them in the heated garage.  We also needed to do one last wipe-down, not a full cleaning, so that the bathrooms would be okay for the winter.  Around 3:00 a couple people came in while we were working.  Other than them, the campground was almost like a ghost town.  Basically only the staff was here.

Joe, the bird tamer!

This afternoon after Mark and I finished cleaning, we were in the office chatting with Rosanne when we looked out the window and saw Joe Velez filling the bird feeders in the courtyard.  Then we saw something incredible that Mark was able to take pictures of on his phone…

Fall staff and seasonal potluck

New glasses

Today Mark took me to Sturgeon Bay to pick up my new glasses.  You may recall that my old glasses got badly scratched when I had my bicycle accident several weeks ago.  I’ve been using my long distance glasses for the last several weeks, but I’ve been going nuts and getting headaches trying to see anything around the distance of my laptop screen.  Mark took pictures of this momentous occasion:

God’s provision for us

We went to my church, Community Friends Church, yesterday.  In the “programmed” Friends meetings, there is a time for open worship.  This is a designated five or ten minute period of silence where people can talk about what God is doing in their lives, ask for prayer, read a passage of scripture, sing, or whatever they feel moved by the Spirit to do.  So I shared about coming to the point of thanking God that we won’t be able to come back to Wagon Trail Campground next year and that my life is in upheaval and I don’t know what He’s doing, but deciding to trust Him.

The Sound of Music

On April 29, 2015, Mark and I were driving to Wagon Trail Campground for the first time.  We were a little bit scared.  We had had a number of Workamping jobs where either the boss didn’t like us or our co-workers didn’t like us or both.  We prayed as we passed the Welcome to Door County sign that this would be a good situation for us.  God surpassed all that we could think or imagine.  Wagon Trail Campground is gorgeous, as you well know from my blogs and pictures, and our bosses and co-workers have become like family.  I thought we’d be coming back here for as long as our bodies could hold up.
