Heading Home

We got up to cloudy but clearing skies in Bayfield.We enjoyed our stay and would like to return some time and go to Madeline Island.

After breakfast, our first stop was Ashland Area Fabric and Quilt Co – a nice shop in Ashland, WI. While talking with the owner, we found that her husband and son own Bayfield Apple Company (there yesterday!). They also own Lucy’s Place, a B&B in Bayfield.

We decided to head south through towns we’ve never been to. The trees were gorgeous and the drive fairly relaxing. We came across the world's 3rd largest loon in Mercer.

In Hazelhurst, we found The Quilt Cottage - an interesting log cabin with lots of flowers in front. This is a nice shop and we enjoyed talking with the friendly ladies while I found some cute little kits. 

Following a picnic in a park in Tomahawk, we discovered the downtown and stopped at Sew Pieceful Quilting - a wonderful, small shop with great ladies working and shopping there! They pointed out more shops that we would pass but I told Ray we needed to end this shop hop - I think I have more projects than I can finish in the next year or ten!

We really are not good in the car for very many hours any more – so we decided to stop around 4. We are in Plover, just south of Stevens Point tonight.

Had a wonderful dinner at Mikey's. We'd love to go back again!

We will be home tomorrow and vacation will end really fast. By Monday, we have to empty our large dormer closets because more insulation is going in the roof. And this weekend is Pumpkin Fest so I have pies to make. AND most important of all, Sunday is Ray’s birthday.

It's been a great trip but it will be nice to be home again. I need to find some time to quilt!
