Camping Trip at Willow Tree

Last week it rained on and off but we did not care!  We were at Willow Tree RV park Monday thru Thursday morning.  It is our favorite spot and we love it so much!!  There is a golf cart path around the entire lake.  We used to walk around it but now Bill is unable to so we rented a cart for 24 hrs. and had fun going through the woods trail, too!

  Our daughter and her fiancee came two of the days and we had great fun with them ending with a fire after dark, roasting hotdogs and marshmallows.  I even played my guitar and we sang the old songs that my kids were raised on.

   My daughter cried when we sang, "Dymock's Barn", a song I wrote in the 70's about a place on Skaneateles Lake, NY where we camped every year for hubby's birthday in August.  Back in those days, he never had a vacation from his work so he went to work from the little cottage we rented every day.  A lot of good memories came flowing back...

This is our little home away from home and we love it!  We bought it 2 yrs. ago when I asked hubby what he would like to do and he said he would like to go camping.  It was second hand but in great condition.  It has 2 pop out sleeping areas, a shower in the little Bathroom, stove, microwave, double sink, frig and eating area.  It is our little piece of heaven.  I learned to drive towing it cold turkey and have never had a problem.  It weighs under 3000 lbs. so we can pull it with our Chevy Equinox.  Love it!  And yes, I can even back it up-ha!  Who knew!

  This brightly colored turtle was crossing our path in the woods and was obliged to stop in his tracks while we all snapped pictures.  He was quite large.
Sunset at Willow Tree is always gorgeous...

Farewell, Sweet Willow Tree till we camp again....

Thanks so much for visiting to share our camping trip.  Have a wonderful week ahead!

My heart to yours....

Great pictures, and your camper sounds more luxurious than I thought!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful pics Kerrie. I recall we used to have a caravan which we kept on a touring site. Was there for about ten years where we would spend week-ends and perhaps the occasional holiday. It was a grand life.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

It all sounds perfect, Kerrie. It makes me smile to think of the joy the two of you are sharing.

I guess I've lost Patricia again. I hope all is well with her.

Thank you so much for following me back and for visiting my blog. The title of this post caught my attention. We went to Willow Tree earlier this year and loved it so much that we are going back in a couple of weeks. Love the pictures--it looks like y'all love Willow Tree as much as we do. I'm off to read more of your posts. Take care.
