|Site 36E-view of Bay|
We didn't have to battle anyone else for the opportunity to have site 36, which happens to be the only camp site on the edge of the bay and the convenience of electricity.
This site is pretty much reserved for the entire camping season on weekends. It has a long drive of about 50 feet, the angle for the road is a bit challenging for backing up but doable. I think we just need more practice. The center of the drive was also extremely level. It's far enough away from bathhouse and vault toliet to make it peaceful place.

Our early season adventure had many pluses as well. No Bugs. Plus the sites were littered with down and dead wood, making for plenty of firewood. No worries about flooding at Perrot, the campground is well above the flood stage.
There were several other campers out as well. With little greenery between the sites we still felt we had plenty of privacy. The lack of leaves afforded us better views of the sunset, night skies and we could see the critters around us scurrying about.
|Fish Kills at Refuge|
We enjoy several hikes in the park and at the Wildlife Refuge. The winter ice caused a large fish kill and the path was littered with fish heads, presumably left by scavengers or those extraterrestrial visitors.
The pelicans were passing through and we saw large flocks of them passing overhead.
So our first adventure was a success. We were well prepared for our new toys with a 4 hour orientation by the Pettibone RV folks and even enjoyed a welcome bucket of s'mores.
Note to self-Remember to bring pillows.
