Slowing Down

Share

I just finished a tour Lambeau Field and am at the library in Green Bay. They redid the stadium a few years ago and it is very cool. The tour went up to one of the luxury boxes and down onto the field. Well worth the stop. Definitely a place to add to the list for my yearly sporting events. I also stopped by the pub their for a beer and to make a few, I’m not working phone calls. Sure there will be many more of those. I will be making my way west across Wisconsin for a few days hoping that the camp sites aren’t full with the 4th of July coming up.

I spent a couple of days in Door County Wisconsin which is the peninsula northeast of Green Bay. It is a touristy area with lots of antique shops, orchards, and knick knacks. I was in the younger portion of visitors, but only spent one day doing a little of that. They also have 5 state parks, of which I hit 4 of them. Very cool forest areas, sand dunes and Lake Michigan on one side and Green Bay on the other side. The mosquitoes took over my camp one night so I was locked away inside my tent to get away from them.  One of the big things they advertise to do is something called a fish boil. I called one place and was told they have them every night before 8, no reservations needed. I showed up at 7:15 and was told they were already cleaning up because it was so slow. It is supposed to be a fish platter cooked over an open fire with onions and potatoes until it boils over onto the fire, I think. Normally I wouldn’t even have bothered to call so it is funny that the one time I did that it didn’t work out.

It has been nice waking up and listening to the waves and birds without having to rush around. Lots of wildlife here, I got some good pictures of some baby raccoons, but can’t upload them at this library. I’ll try to get them up next time. Forgot to mention that some raccoons had emptied out my cooler in Missouri, that was my mistake not theirs though. They made a mess and helped themselves to my oatmeal cream pies, a turkey sandwich, and some breakfast bars. Score one for them. The cooler has been spending the nights inside the truck now. Hope all is well with all of you.
