This park is a COE park. It has been a while since I have talked about COE parks, but I will repeat what I have said. We LOVE COE parks. They are a great value and we have never been disappointed. We do not qualify for the senior pass yet, so we don't get he 50% off, but it is great that folks over 62 can get that discount. We are planning to stay at COE parks all the way back to Missouri.
You could say that this park is still part of the Flint river. The park is on a branch off of the main path of the river. It makes the water quiet, with plenty of lily pads and birds. It is really a pretty setting.

We got the boat ready and were able to launch it right in front of our site. We love that. We always start out by paddling into the wind or up river if there is a current. The problem was that the wind was stronger than the current, so we went down river. In a couple of the open areas it got a bit windy, but not too bad.
|Nice Day on the water.|

We cleaned the boat and left it in the sun to dry. I read a few chapters of my current book and then we cleaned and packed up the boat. I fixed the last of my deer steaks for dinner. They were sure good with Tim's Killer Meat Rub. While we were eating, the front hit. I finished and then put the grill away in the rain. The front looked bad on radar, but it seemed to reduce in strength over us and all was good. It quit raining and we had a quiet night. We were awoken this morning to some more hard rain. It looks like we will have rain most of the day and on into the Easter Weekend. To most, that would be bad, but we look at the bright side. We will have a very quiet campground. We have decided to stay here through the weekend. We are not far from a church in Bainbridge for Easter Sunday. They have a mass at 1PM, we should to be able to make that.
I may not write for a few days as I am caught up and we may just be hunkered down riding out that rain. We will check in again in a few days from Alabama. That is unless we need to build an ark. It is really raining right now.
