We laid around the for the morning, and only ventured out to take the dogs for a short walk around the park, watching all the weekend warriors loading up and heading out. Back to their every day lives, leaving behind their weekend fun get-away time. That used to be US too! And now we can enjoy staying put and not having to rush back many miles to a sticks-n-bricks home. We get to stay!
About noon, Steve was getting antsy to do something, so I tossed a batch of chili in the crock pot and we took off for a ride. We loaded up the dogs in the back of the Tracker so they could get out and about too. We drove through Calumet County Park, about 5 or 6 miles down the road, along the same shoreline as High Cliff State Park. We thought we might like to spend a bit of time there too, and scoped out the sites.
From there we headed back around through Sherwood, and back towards our park. Right before the entrance to the park, for some strange reason, the Tracker just steers itself into the parking lot at The Chubby Seagull ....
We just had to stop for waffle cones, dipped in chocolate and rolled in sprinkles. Steve had mint chocolate chip hand dipped ice cream on the left (THAT is a single scoop!) and I asked for a very small scoop in the cone on the right of Mackinaw Island Fudge ice cream in my cone. This sweet gal, Autumn, posed for us holding our delightful treats. I told her I was putting her in my blog!
After we stuffed ourselves silly with our big cones, we drove back to the campsite and got settled in for the Packer Game at 3:15. Steve dozed off a bit before the game started, while I had out my sock-knitting machine in the background and was cranking away on socks for my Etsy store. Also I have my laptop open setting on the rotated driver's seat so I can keep up with all my internet buddies while I am cranking!
It was a bad game, the Packers lost, but we love them any way!
As you can see, the dogs are not too interested in football.
During half time, the chili was done!
Tomorrow I am running up to Oconto to pick up little Chelsea. It's her turn to come for a sleepover in our motorhome at the park tomorrow night. So I am sure to have a pile of pics of her Great Adventure with Granmuddah and Granfaddah Pfun!
