Mequon, Wisconsin. Those are people in the first photo, near the shore. It's a spectacular view, and our favorite. We've been all around the Lake on the Circle Tour, but we're never seen a more beautiful vista. The second photo is the lake shore at Concordia College, also in Mequon. How could you ever get any studying done with this view? The statue is called "Fisher of Men" by Igor Vaseljev. The view, the smell of the air and sharing it with my honey, made it a perfect day. Our 4th of July celebration was quiet, with just the guys and me. I barbecued some chicken, and I set the table, but we ate inside. The heat and humidity made it a little uncomfortable outside. We brought home a apple pie from the Elegant Farmer, a place up north famous for their apple pie baked in a paper bag. We later watched the fireworks from a high point at a park nearby. The summer is just beginning, there is so much beauty to see. Get out there and enjoy this beautiful day.
