Safe trip North & Safely tucked in My Camper for the night!!

A big hello to all y Prim friends from Kelley's Island Ohio...
I had to get up way to early this morning to make my trip North but it all went smoothly. I was really glad I had packed everything Sunday but my food and critters...
I planned my start with with my yearly visit to the Women's doctor's visit. So our first stop was my house to drop off the critters so they could eat and romp around while I visited the Dr's office...After my appointment I headed back to the house... the ferry still only runs 4 times a day so I had to catch the last ferry at 6:00.
I had a little time at the house so I cleaned all the fallen tree limbs up and put them in the burn barrel out back...
Then I loaded up all the critters again and we were off to the Ferry... got there a few minutes early so visited with the Ticket lady..shes a friend so we had a nice visit..she was glad to see I was back and all the critters were with me...
The ferry ride was rough today ..really windy and still cold up here...
I wasn't sure what condition my camper was going to b in or if any little critters had invaded it over winter...but much to my surprise ......I had left it super clean and very little exidence that any critters had made there way in so it didn't take me long to unload the van, put everything away, set up the critter food and water bowls & the litter box for the Kitty's...and we were moved in and ready to settle in for the week...
I have to tell ya it felt really good to know I didn't really have to do anything tonight but sit ack and relax.. and that is exactly what I have done...
It's a little chilly in the camper so my Kittys have cuddled up close to me which keeps me warm too.. Puddles is at my feet and Lucky Blue is asleep on her perch....I've been reading blogs and editing pictures so I can list Tomorrow morning or tomorrow night..we'll see how it goes...

Of course I start cleaning my first house tomorrow... It is a nice change to get out of the shop and come up here so I'm actually excited to get into cleaning...

The picture of the boats is at my dock. My boat is the first one with the Blue camper top... It doesn't normally look lke that anymore as my Kitty's now come with me so it always has the camper walls up as well and looks like the blue blob...LOL...compared to all the boats with no tops at all on them...
This is what she looks like with the complete camper top up..

Not to worry I will still be here all summer just in a new location 4 to 5 days a week... always have my computer with me...

i hope you had a wonderful Monday..mine was good!! Now it's time to call it a day...

Warm Blessings are sent your way!!

  2. Hi Tonya,

  4. Glad to hear you had a safe trip and all is well.
    You will have to show us more pics of Kelley Island, sounds beautiful.
    Prim Blessings

  5. To highlight For the last 9 years I have lived on my boat in the summers while on the Island. I also own a house In Port Clinton where I lived for 10 years and would go there when not working on the Island.
    My Boat needed repairs so was not in the water last year so I lived in my Camper on the Island. I keep camper on the Island year round to stay in when boat is not in the water. I will be staying in my Camper until the boat is repaired and in the water then will live on the boat on the days I am on the Island. When I go home on days off now I go home to Delaware Ohio where my Shop and Trailer are located.
    I will shar all my adventures and many Pictures of my Island..


  6. what a fun time ahead for you and the boat...beautiful.

  7. Hi Tonya, I had time to look at some blogs, and I enjoyed your story of your trip. That is sure different to live on the boat for the summer...sounds like so much fun and so peaceful...I hope you have a wonderful time up there...stay safe and warm....hugs...Denise

  9. Glad to hear you made it safely. The boats moored at the dock reminds me of out time spent on the North shores of Lake Superior. Don't work too hard girl, miss you already.
