Weekend getaway. :) Best time of my life.
Planning a trip at midnight Friday. Taking off at 6am Saturday. Singing our hearts out the whole way there, forgetting that it’s a 4 hour drive. Checking in at Seagull Bay where the town is so small they keep the keys in the room, unlocked. Braving it up to ride a bike. Drinking jugs of Summer Shandy to keep warm. Taking a ferry over to Madeline Island. Biking through trails and blacktops. Munching on Wisconsin cheese, beef links, Mrs. Field’s cookies, and sipping on a cold one. Peddling for 7 miles across the island for breathtaking views of the other side of the water mass. Wanting to give up the peddling that was causing extreme ass-soreness. Pumping up the boyfriend to bike me back all 7 miles (took him less than an hour!). Drinking and darting at the Beach Club. Taking the ferry back to have the freshest cheesiest burgers alive! Then winding down to a nice short cruise and ending it with cable TV.
Love. The simple things in life.
Waking up at 7am for a morning hike. Staring down from the cliff to the beach. Closing eyes and pretending to fly as the strong winds carry you away. Petting pets. The best breakfast ever at Egg Toss. Shopping the shops. Buying Bayfield T-shirts (represssseeeent!) 2 pounds of taffy! Wine-to-go! Sitting on the side of buildings and singing as a two person band. Failing at jumping mid-air photos. Native American shops and ceremonial tobacco rolled into grape Swishers! Lol! Driving off route to find jerky shops and cheese shops! Stopping in small towns to stare at lakes. Coming home to BBQ and of course, bringing WI beer over on a Sunday!
To top it off, I get my bunny in two days! I love my boyfriend. <3
