“Wisconsin is a special place” (attribution Brett Favre, Greenbay Packers Quarterback)

Wisconsin stops included Lake Pepin (birthplace of Laura Ingalls Wilder), Sturgeon Bay, Merrimac and Milwaukee.  We enjoyed visits with Eulalie’s Uncle Mike and Aunt Sandy, and  Loir Mithun and Stuart Mitchell and their children, who had recently returned to Wisconsin to be closer to their parents.

    Lake Michigan holds a special place in my heart as well as David’s. I learned to sail on Lake Michigan, and Dave grew up spending every summer – all summer long – on it’s beautiful beach north of Manistee, MI.
