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!

It looks like you had a wonderful, relaxing time! I think that it is always so relaxing and peaceful to be by the water! Glad you had an opportunity to spend some time with family!
Thanks so much, Cheryl! Being by the water really is the perfect, peaceful place to relax for the weekend. It was so great spending time with my family too.
This looks like the best, most relaxing time. The house is gorgeous! It always amazes me how bright and bountiful the stars are when you get away from city lights–truly spectacular! Also fun to see your siblings Have you ever done any geocaching?
Thanks Cindy! This is one of my favorite places to be, so I always feel very lucky when I get to spend time there. The stargazing is the best because we lay on the beach and look out where there are no city lights. My sister and nieces and I have gone letterboxing a few times, but never geocaching.
