Two Things I Was Happy To See On The Second Day Of May, 2022…

My husband and I visited Cheboygan State Park for a few nights, staying in what used to be a park ranger residence. I’ll share pics of that lodge and more about that experience in the next few days.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a funny experience involving the number “2.” If I were a sassy lawyer in a grumpy judge’s courtroom, I’d say, “Your honor, I have a point and I intend to make it.”


We wanted to take a look at the public beach in the park, but the road leading to the beach was gated off and not allowing vehicle access. Not to be deterred. we decided we’d make what was supposed to be a .8 mile walk (one way).

I’ll spare you the gory details of what transpired during this walk. Well, most of them, anyway. I’ll share a couple of pictures of things I was insanely happy to see on this walk. It would be three things, but the bunny I saw wasn’t cooperative with being photographed. Without further ado, here goes:

When the public restrooms with flush toilets are closed at a state park, these stinky vault toilets (if supplied properly) can really save the day more than Superman! This one even had hand sanitizer! A nice find in Cheboygan’s group campground near the public beach. You know, I was somewhat prepared for this – I had paper towels, hand sanitizer and a Ziploc baggie with me. I’m no stranger to backwoods potty emergencies, after all! Too bad I didn’t also bring a trowel!
If I hadn’t made that side trip to find the vault toilet, I might have missed seeing this beauty crossing Duncan Bay. See? Some thing really “do” happen for a reason! Now how is this for a “photo finish?”
