Mark’s progress: Rowley’s Bay

From the time Mark entered Door County, he has been staying with a couple from my church, John and Georgene Mann.  They let him park the RV in front of their milking barn.  They didn’t have the right kind of hookups for him, but between his generator and his propane tank, he managed.
