The Next Thing



As usual I am looking toward the next vacation break. With July 4th falling in the middle of the week, there's not much happening around that date. We'll probably just go to the local fireworks at the Waukesha Expo and help stomp out  all the ground fires the fireworks start. We are in the early stages of drought around here and could use a couple of feet of rain. (Not all at once, please.)

No, the next big vacation is the next week when we will spend 3 days and 2 nights with good friends at Koehler Andrae State Park near Sheboygan, WI. I've never been to the park, but it looks like it has some great beach area to it, which will be nice, given the scorching weather we've had the past 3 weeks or so. Hopefully the water won't be too rancid, like it gets down in Milwaukee when the algae comes floating in. 

We will be tenting it at the park, while our friends stay near us in their RV/Trailer. It will be good to get some fishing in, as they have a small fishing pond in the park. Unfortunately these kinds of ponds usually serve to disappoint, especially if its a dry year. They tend not to be fed from a spring/stream, so can get fairly tough to fish fairly quickly. None of this will stop me from looking into it. Our friends' kids like to fish, so will probably make a go of it as well.

Life is much more interesting when sprinkled with diversions like this. This by no means is as rough as we saw a few weeks ago, and I'm OK with that. Some good laughs, campfire and beach time with friends should do my soul good. Looking forward to it.

Blogging off...
