Lucky Cows

Lake Michigan viewed from Wisconsin

Several weeks ago, we had to make a last minute trip to Wisconsin.
I actually closed the shoppe for 1 day in the middle of the week, in the middle of summer! Gasp! Unheard of!
Well...it was prompted only due to the fact Dan offered to drive his Father over for a funeral.

I was able to visit a dear friend, her husband, and her two adorable new puppies.

Nothing sweeter than bare puppy bellies.okay, 2 bare puppy bellies!
It was great, for it has been close to 2 years since I have seen her. They recently relocated from Washington DC, to the land of the Big Woods (reference to Laura Ingalls Wilder). It just so happens where they now reside is only 20 minutes from Dan's Father's hometown. It is such a small, small world.

On our 8 hour drive, we decided to get off the highway and see what "Our Lake" looks like from the west side.
I must say it was spectacular, what I loved most was the lack of development, there were cottages, and I mean cottages not McMansions. I wanted to move right in to several of them.
They all had the look and charm of being generational. You could imagine all the tales those little stone cottages could reveal. Would have taken photos, but am somewhat hesitant about invading others privacy.

But the kicker on the whole experience....

See Lake Michigan in the distance...Lucky Cows...They didn't know what
to think of me.
These dairy cows live, graze, eat all while enjoying breathtaking views of the Lake!!
