Parker & Grandpa - our dock at Black Bear Lodge.   This is actually the picture of Parker's first sunfish caught in the lake (the 10th fish he had caught in his life).  We lost count a couple of days later because he caught so many more.

We were close to the Michigan border so we drove up so that Parker could say he had been in Michigan. We stopped at this roadside park just over the border.

Parker fishing in his "bluegill hole" - he pulled a lot of sunfish out of here.  It was amazing - he learned to  cast the spinning rod after three tries.  He was even baiting his own hook by the end of the week.

This is the south campfire ring.  They had a campfire here on Sunday night.  Parker and I went down and they were having a hard time starting  the fire. What they were doing was piling a bunch of logs on top a newspaper and lighting it and expecting to get a fire. I soon got a fire going.  On our last night, there was a campfire at the north campfire ring.  Another group was having trouble getting their fire started.  Parker went up and volunteered our help: "My grandpa and me are pretty good at starting fires".
