My beach feet in Havaianas. (my favorite celebrity flip flop-the Original)
This is the view off the beach at Camp Nawakwa.
Last week was our annual family vacation to the North Woods in Wisconsin. We had a very nice time, and felt rejuvinated when we arrived back home. From the photos, you might have thought we just flew back from a week in the French countryside. I want to share our photos with you. I will have a more substantive post tomorrow.
One of my favorite highlights was going to town with my daughter and her friend. I stopped in at my most loved shop, Ann Maries in Minocqua. There they sell gourmet coffee, imported, pricey (but beautiful) pottery from France, Italy and England and other irrestable frivolities from France. Nothing from China here. The shop smells absolutely divine and if you are looking to be visually stimulated, then you’ve reached the place.
The camp had something new this year-‘comfort bike’ rentals. (If you read this blog regularly, you know that the bike is something I’m warming up to) My husband asked me if I wanted to take a ride with him on this snowmobile route he heard of that is scenic with a wooden bridge that stretches over a lake. I said yes, and we headed out. It was thoroughly enjoyable! I felt like I was prepared for the steep hills on the way, since I have been going to the gym for well over a year and have done spinning as part of my workout. I wasn’t winded and my legs were strong enough to get me through the many miles we pedaled that day. Larry and I haven’t rode bikes together since we were teenagers. This was a really enjoyable day. I think I’m going to have to find myself a good quality ‘comfort bike’ and purchase it. It’s nothing like the bike I have in the garage. This one seems to be made for an achy 45 year old woman (or an achy 48 year old man!)
I almost finished my David Sedaris book…only 30 more pages till I’m finished. Twas a good week!
