|Big Flag, popular in all states we visited.|
(I'm trying to keep a NO FALLS policy this summer, unlike last year when I had a dramatic fall and messed myself up but good!)
We stopped a little further down the road and found a sand beach.
We spent some time getting some sun while the kids walked to where a band was playing, and for a cool drink.
What a great souvenir of a happy visit.
We watched the fireworks at Lake Linden. Being so far north, it doesn't get dark until after 10:00.
I told Penny it was because we were closer to Santa. The fireworks started well after 11. It was a tremendous show that we enjoyed in spite of the cold. It was 55 degrees! After waiting in line to get out of the campground and the ride back to our hotel it was really late when we hit the hay.
We enjoyed the long ride up, but not knowing what to expect, and not realizing that Wisconsin is a very big state, (We haven't ventured too much past Green Bay) it seems much longer than the way home. We missed the parade in town on the 4th, we just couldn't keep up with the kids. We, well just my driver slept in, but when he got up we both wanted home. Three trips in three weeks. About 2100 miles! I was so glad that we did. My dearest slept most of yesterday and had a meeting at 7:00am today. We need a vacation from our vacations.
Today I got up and started a project I promised for our service projects. One hundred stamped bags for the mental heath center we help support. They are stamped with permanent ink and have to dry. Next, watering the garden, it's a hot day here.
So happy to be home, there's no place like it, for comfort, for happiness and love.
Thanks for stopping by and for your kindness always.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
