Last weekend we attended a vintage trailer rally to get a break from everything that’s been happening. A great weekend Getaway!
West Boggs Lake Park, where the rally was held, was absolutely beautiful. West Boggs Lake consists of 625 acres and has over 21 miles of shoreline. The photo above was the night we arrived and the sun was setting. Minnie Driv’r is all lite up!
When pulling a vintage trailer you can’t go over 60 mph which ends up making the travel time a bit longer and it took up 5 1/2 hours to get there. But it was so worth it!
Each sunset was prettier than the night before.
Mr. C and I took a paddle boat ride one morning…
From the lake we shot a photo of our vintage trailer, Minnie Driv’r. Typically I dress Minnie all up and hang lace curtains around the awning but this was a weekend to recoup and recharge for what we were facing.
We loved our campsite at the vintage trailer rally and it felt as if we had our own peninsula! Mr. C having his morning coffee and Ginger which you can’t hardly see. Our meals were eaten at the picnic table then a quick stroll to the lake.
We also seen some wildlife headed into town for groceries.
Many times when we passed the cow he would have his head sticking out the door but when we stopped to take a photo he came outside to check on what we were doing…
A few horses and…
And a lamb! We heard through the grapevine that there was a very special lamb at the campsite.
When she turned toward us she had two heads! She had a middle third eye and ate out of both mouths. The two heads weight caused unbalanced when walking and would lean on someone. Statistics are only once in over 400,000, 00 and it was all over the main stream news.
She was named Lucky and they were taking her to a research hospital to see what her survival changes were. From what I understand they typically don’t live more than 2 months.
You might know this, but I love to cook, and enjoy it just as much when camping. But, I didn’t’ want to cook using coals or fire. After searching the internet I found a vintage Griswold cast iron burner stove. The stove back in the day was used to can outside on the porch keeping the house cooler.
Breakfast, as well as all of our meals, wwew cooked on the stove and I love it. Made beef stew, pork tenderloin and shrimp besides breakfast.
We also visited Bill’s Crazy Place. Bill owns this geodesic house and the grounds that surround it has to be the most colorful place in Indiana and he admits, the weirdest.
Bill has over four thousand bird houses and way over twenty thousand rocks which he painted.
It was the coolest place. Bill said”Oh, heavens, yes. One rock at a time,” he said, looking out over the thousands of rocks assembled and painted in his yard.
It was so much fun while visiting Bill Larkin and if you’d like to read more about Bill click here.
We had such a great time and didn’t want to come home to face what has happened. Did you ever see the movie All About Eve with Betty Davis? Well its a great movie and a famous line Betty said was “Hold on to your seat, we’re in for a bumpy ride”!
In my next post you’ll find out what a bumpy ride its turned out to be and how it how it happened.
