Goose Island State Park

When we saw this sunrise our first morning here, I knew Goose Island State Park was going to be a therapeutic place to spend the week.

Waterfront sites are worth the extra $4 a night. One evening, we were treated to a fireworks show for the opening night of the Oyster Festival.

Dinner Last Night:
Stir-Fried Szechuan Green Beans & Shiitake Mushrooms. Most people would have this as a side, but we had it as a dinner served with rice.

2016 Cost of Camping:
23 nights free camping
43 nights paid camping (thru Saturday 3/5)
66 days this year
Total spent on camping this year: $938
Daily average cost of camping: $14.21

    My heart breaks for your loss. Our own 14-year old dog has lost his hearing, sight in one eye, and is on daily medications, but is fortunately still a good traveling buddy. Curtie will always travel with you in your hearts. We’re heading to Goose Island today, arrival tomorrow. Looks like we’ll just miss you – would love to say “hi” after following your posts for several years. Safe travels!

    Just caught up on your blog since we returned from desert camping and of course, I’m saddened to learn of Curtie’s passing.

    Thank you for sharing so much of Curtie’s life with us and for your ongoing blog, which emanates so much love and positive energy!
