Greetings From The North Woods
I’m writing from a cabin on the shores of Lake Superior, in a remote spot near Michigan’s Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. We’ll be here for the remainder of the week.
We spent the weekend in central Wisconsin, celebrating Judy’s birthday and our anniversary (our 33rd) with the boys and their significant others.
We rented an old farmhouse and spent our time reading, cooking, eating, and playing board games.
On Sunday we packed up and headed to the riverfront park in town (Mauston, population 4,411). After playing a really strange board game called Small World on a picnic table, we had lunch at a local pizza place.
Afterwards, we went our separate ways: Judy and I towards the Upper Peninsula, David and Meredith back to St. Paul, and Daniel and Beckee returned to Chicago. Being all together gladdened my heart, I only wish we had more time.
I had intended to write a post before leaving Chicago. However, somehow the period leading up to a vacation is always particularly busy and stressful, or at least it feels that way. I left the garden worrying about what I would miss while gone.
In any case, Judy and I will still be on vacation for the rest of the week. I’ll try to do a post or two while we’re up here.
