Rick and I often find ourselves taking little road trips in the country.
We enjoy the quiet, tranquil easy-paced drives on the back roads of rural Minnesota.
But sometimes ....
I get ants in my pants and want to visit the "Big City", this time it was Milwaukee.
Why, you might say???
Well, we have never been there, we like the Big Lakes,
this time Lake Michigan and a bonus...
we were able to take our Hemmer niece's and nephews out to dinner...
more on that in a post to come.
These roads always get my heart racing, underpasses and overpasses everywhere!
It didn't take us long to check into our hotel and find a beach
A little chilly for swimming, but lovely all the same.
Rick stood in line for a mid-day snack at this cute little food stand on the beach.
Of course we explored the area and found this little gem,
North Point Light house
One morning we had us a morning walk by the
ocean, lake :)
The Marina, looking back at Milwaukee.
Loved this "Pirate ship", I was kind of wishing it had it's sails up.
Another look back at the city.
Sailboats were everywhere.
Rick and I had a bird's-eye-view of this beach.
The depth perception isn't the same in a photograph but believe me it was way down there!
Several flights of stairs would get you down to it, but with a knee pending surgery,
I thought it best not to try.
Too many photo's for one blog post so I'll be back with more on this beautiful city.
