Weekend Adventures: At the Lake

On the weekends, especially Saturdays, we’re always trying to think of something fun to do that’s outside our neighborhood. Sometimes, we go to the farmers market. Other times, we go downtown for a slice of pizza and a dose of people-watching. Other times, in Fall, we hit the hiking trails.

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to spend a couple days with my family at my parents’ lake house.

I met them at one of our favorite restaurants, Fred and Fuzzy’s (named after the owners), which is a waterfront bar and grille. Simple patio tables, chairs and umbrellas. Simple menu. I always get the whitefish sandwich with sweet potato fries. Their cherry margaritas are SO good. (Door County is famous for its cherries, which grow well in the local conditions.)

We took the boat out to sea for a cruise.

We had a bonfire, complete with s’mores and a lovely sunset each night.

After the bonfire simmered down, we were able to do some serious star gazing, another one of my favorite pastimes. We saw lots of shooting stars, constellations, satellites on the move, and the milky way galaxy.

We went letterboxing, which is always fun, even though the notebooks in this box were pretty wet and the entries were a couple years old.

It was still fun to peel apart the pages and see the variety of stamps people use.

Did I mention that I haven’t seen my sister in a year or my brother in six months? I have really missed spending time with them and spending time on the water.

We enjoyed a few days of fresh air, good food, and good times together!

It’s been a crazy busy summer, so a weekend full of R&R was exactly what I needed. Thanks for stopping by!
