Our drive from Dodgeville this past Wednesday was uneventful, just the way we like them. The Wisconsin countryside did not disappoint and I took many pictures. The verdant landscape dotted with farms complete with barns and silos is breathtaking in the fact that is goes on and on and on! There are more small evergreen trees (mostly pine) as we travel north but deciduous trees continue to be the norm. Last week I mentioned the lack of orchards but we found several while taking a daytrip north in Door County—mostly apple trees. Many vineyards and wineries are evident as well. Sturgeon Bay was a bit of a disappointment after reading all the hype. The town is torn up with major street and bridge construction and even with the help of the visitor’s center we found it difficult to find a (non-smoking) place to eat and finally after checking out several options ended up at a familiar Applebee’s with a nice location on the bay. I had hoped for a great local seafood place … but that didn’t happen.
Margie and Roger, our friends in Gallatin, TN where we stayed two weeks in April and May have purchased their motorhome; a like-new, 40 ft., 2007 Phaeton QDH with four slides built by Tiffin. It is a beauty and they are thrilled to have it parked in the driveway at long last. Now when the house sells, they will be ready to start the next phase of their lives together in “Phaez2”, the moniker they have given their new home. Margie has faithfully blogged (her blog is linked on my sidebar) every hill and valley over time in the journey towards a new fulltime RV lifestyle and you can check it out here.
Until next time,
