Bonfires, Boating and a Maze

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.

the lake side of the cottageI managed to spend a lot of time daydreaming over the water.

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,

leaving the marinauntil we ended up at my favorite place! (they have the BEST bloody mary drinks and whitefish sandwiches!)

We also went to the Seaquist Orchard to try out this rope maze.

Rope Maze at SeaquistIt was fun to wind our way through the woods to get to the platform in the center.

rope maze through the woodsI only messed up once, retraced my steps, and found my way on the right path.

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.)
