Lake Erie Shores and Islands: Biggest Week in American Birding Experience

Magee Marsh Ohio

Back in September, I shared about a day trip I took to the Lake Erie island town of Put-In-Bay on South Bass island when I was in the nearby area for Bloggy Con. I was smitten with the area and its beauty and the friendly people. Just a few weeks ago at the beginning of the spring season, I was invited to come back to the area to participate in the Biggest Week in American Birding, one of the most respected and highly anticipated birding events in the country. I was also able to have an extended visit of not only Put-In-Bay, but the other areas of the Lake Erie Shores and Islands area.  They wanted me to get the full Lake Erie Love experience!  They sure know how to make a girl feel welcome. I’m so excited to share these new domestic travel stories with you througout the month of June!  It was filled with new adventures and experiences and perfect to continue our celebaration of Great Outdoors Month.

Glamping Adventures in a Florida Yurt

Glamping adventures and luxurious camping holidays are so fetch right now!   It’s the way divas like us were meant to experience the great outdoors.

Glamping Yurt Torreya State Park

My first ever glamping adventure trip happened completely by accident.  It was meant to be  another normal camping trip but it wouldn’t be me if it were normal now would it? I wanted to stay in a cabin this time around because my boyfriend wouldn’t be making the trip.  I’ve only been camping once.  Last spring the family roughed it — tent, sleeping bags, braving the elements, bugs, cooking outside; we did all of it.   While we had an amazing time and it was a beautiful setting in nature, it was definitely against all of my inner diva instincts.  Since that trip, I’ve been dying to go camping again and I decided to plan a camping excursion for my son and I before the new school year started.  It would be a great chance for mom and son bonding before he started his next adventure of beginning high school. Who knew finding this yurt would be one of our most epic adventures! I hear you. What the heck is a yurt? Go On…Keep Reading!
