Bonfires, Boating and a Maze
June 23, 2009 by Terri Wilhelm
What a great getaway weekend to my parent’s cottage! Almost like a mini vacation. We lucked out with perfect weather in northern Wisconsin, considering it was hot and humid in Madison.
I managed to spend a lot of time daydreaming over the water.
And more time gazing at the bonfire on the beach and the millions of stars illuminating the sky over us.
I love the way that fire looks in the blue light at dusk. And the way it changes when the night grows darker. Then the flames make the ground underneath glow.
We were lucky enough to go boating,
until we ended up at my favorite place! (they have the BEST bloody mary drinks and whitefish sandwiches!)
Their views can’t be beat.
We even went swimming in that cold, cold water, but it was so exhilarating and refreshing.
We also went to the Seaquist Orchard to try out this rope maze.
It was fun to wind our way through the woods to get to the platform in the center.
I only messed up once, retraced my steps, and found my way on the right path.
It was a little hard to say goodbye to such a beautiful weekend, but it felt good too.
Oh yeah, by the way, I never touched the binding on that quilt, but I finished my book. Wow! (I’m already on to the next one.)
