Our accomodations for the week are provided by the Indian Valley Campground on the Thornapple River outside Caledonia, MI. During the week it’s a peaceful, sleepy place. The Thornapple is so calm here I can’t tell which direction it’s flowing. Birds seem to love it here, and we see cardinals, mourning doves, and catbirds. Ann and I thought we might try tubing the river at some point, but it never tempts us. This place seems to call for naps and reading beneath a shade tree.
It’s interesting to compare it to the RV park where we live. This place is smaller and much cozier, and seems to welcome people making a semi-permanent homestead for themselves. Prices are about the same.
