I want to show you something –

10 Aug

We are fresh off of a long weekend of camping, exploring a new-to-us part of Wisconsin. We left Thursday for three nights in Two Rivers. It was a chance to bike, explore a state park, and enjoy a new place.

Our campground had a short path that connected it to a longer bike path – one direction takes you to Point Beach State Forest. The other way leads you into town.  After we set up on Thursday, we set off for the forest. The big selling point here? They have a pet beach and we have a dog that suddenly this summer loves the water.

The bike trail was wonderful, if a bit challenging for people who don’t bike a whole lot these days. (Plus one of us had to pull the 60 lb. dog in his dog trailer. Not me.) The pet beach was lovely once we hauled our bikes/dog trailer through the sand. Woof. The ride back a bit buggy but scenery still enjoyable. Saturday we took off in the opposite direction, heading to town with the goal of ice cream.

On Friday, we drove north into Door County – a place neither of us have ever been. We stopped in Sturgeon Bay for lunch and a little exploring before heading to Whitefish Dunes State Park and Cave Point County Park. Again – a dog beach. It was a popular place to be on an August day.  We had to hike a mile each way to get the beach; after such a walk and swimming to retrieve his floating frisbee, we had one tired pup.

But that’s not what I want to show you.

The couch arrived. It’s been ours for just over a week. It’s a bit monstrous but it’s what the room needs. It’s comfy and yellow and worth the 20-week wait. On one end is a chaise; that’s Dave’s preferred spot. I hang out on the other end – on the “cuddler.” We wave and talk loudly so the other can hear across across the space in the middle (where sometimes the dog hangs out but he mostly prefers the floor). Someday I’ll tell you about that bright room through the windows … but it needs a little more painting before it’s revealed.
