Well the electrical situation here in the park in Oshkosh has not gotten any better. Actually, this morning it got worse. There still was not enough power to run the A/C units but it did cool down enough last night that it was okay. About 9:00 this morning we lost power completely. After an argument with the Park Manager, who insisted power was on at the campsite power pole and the problem was in my coach, I took a table lamp out and plugged it into the pole. Yep, no power. He finally decided there must be a wire fried between the main circuit breakers and our site. So we unhooked, loaded everything up and moved two sites over. Still not enough power to run the A/C but we do have power for everything else. We ran the generator again, at $3.96 a gallon for diesel, all afternoon while we were out and about so the A/C would be on for the dogs. Amazing what we do for our four legged furkids. This evening they both are sacked out asleep. You'd think they were the ones out running around instead of sleeping in the coach all day. Bridgit's favorite place is on the back of the living room couch.
We finally were able to get out and explore the area around noon. With the big air show going on just to the north of us we had to wind through a little traffic. We did stop for lunch at a Red Robin restaurant. From there we headed north to see the lighthouses on Lake Winnebago. Oshkosh is located right on the west edge of this lake. There are six lighthouses on the lake. We did get to see four of them. One is on private property and not available to the public and the last one we failed to locate down in the town of Fond du Lac, right on the southern tip of the lake. Only one of these lighthouses is still in use as a navigational aid and it is at a small boat harbor. The one pictured here, Asylum Point Lighthouse, was built by the WPA back in the 1930's but was rejected by the Department of Transportation, so it's light was never turned on.
We closed out today with just relaxing here in the coach, getting ready to move on to our next adventure tomorrow, which will be a moving day of about 60 miles over to the shore of Lake Michigan. Some storm clouds did move in this evening, which made it hard to get a good sunset picture, but nothing came of it but a few sprinkles. This area is really lush and green and already is running a humidity at above 90%. The last thing they need is rain.
