Bob dropped me off at the 5th wheel and he took some items to the post office, then stopped by Kroger's to buy beer and chips. Meanwhile, I made fresh guacamole to take to lunch today.
After we finished the chores, we closed the slides, hooked up the truck, and headed to Chelsea, Michigan to the private campground my cousin's family owns. As we drove down the hill into the campground, our eyes feasted on the small lake, rolling green hills, and small creek flowing next to some of the sites.

At the house, we met my cousin, Karen, and her husband Sean. We all got to talking and catching up on many years of life events and family lineage. We come from a big family with lots of kids, so there are aunts, uncles and cousins galore. I have cousins scattered all over the U.S. and we haven't known much about each other. I guess I'll have to get more details so we can meet others on future travels.

When we finished eating, Connie brought out photo albums and envelopes of pictures going way back in our family history. I was so thrilled to see photos of my mom when she was captain of her high school basketball team. Mom told me she only picked the best players for her team and they won every game!

Alas, we had to head back to the 5er. Connie and Mike are taking their three boys to Greenfield Village tonight for their Halloween event. Karen and Sean came down to see our 5th wheel so we gave them a little tour and they headed home.
Tomorrow, we plan to walk the Ann Arbor "Fairyland" Volksmarch, so called because the route features fairy doors, dragons and trolls of Ann Arbor. Sounds interesting.
After our walk, Connie will come down to the campground and take a look-see at our 5th wheel too.
Travel Bug out.
