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!)
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.)

Wow! Those pictures are all wonderful. I love that house!! The rope maze looks like it was lots of fun. What body of water is that? (forgive me for not knowing my geography). It looks beautiful!
What a lovely, peaceful place! Thanks for sharing the pictures!

What a wonderful place to get away to! One of my favorite things to do is daydream over water! It was probably hard to leave!
Wow, how lucky are you to have a place like that to escape to every once in a while! Great pictures! Thanks for sharing.
It looks so relaxing and inviting! What a great time!
Terri, what a lovely spot. And you got to have a bon fire. We can’t have those here because of the fire danger~northern Cali didn’t get much rain this past winter. The whole weekend getaway looks just wonderful. I’m glad you had a good time!
Wow – your parents live in such a beautiful place. Looks like a wonderful weekend!
