Our first stop once we got back to Wisconsin was at Goose Island park.
We put in, and headed out for a great paddle on the beautiful Mississippi River 🙂
We stayed pretty sheltered, since the park is full of beautiful little water mazes, and we spent a couple hours exploring.
It was a fun day to be out- hot, humid, and a fair amount of current, but very little chop. After we loaded up, we dried off, hydrated, and headed down to Viroqua via a beautiful country drive. 30 minutes of solid Wisconsin. ❤
A late lunch at the co-op, and 15 more minutes in the car led to one of my favorite spots, Camp Creek.
I peeled off those waders, sat by the car, and ate chocolate cake while drinking an IPA. Perfection.
We packed up and drove the three hours to home, with just enough energy to unload the car from the home-Amherst-Milwaukee-Winona-LaCrosse-Viroqua-home trip, and collapsed into bed.
My Monday morning involved getting my first crown. I didn’t realize that young people needed crowns sometimes, so I felt pretty old when they told me I needed one. In order to lighten the mood, I wore a crown to my crown appointment.
