We are home! 

We had a great weekend visiting family and friends. Aside from quite a storm on Saturday night and a power outage, we had terrific weather. 

We enjoyed the lake - boating, kayaking - a first for me, and paddle boarding. Actually, Ray paddle boarded and I watched. I also got to help with stepping the mast of one of the sailboats - this was also a first for me. Ray and I also enjoyed a long walk - it's almost a mile to the center of the town of Shell Lake from my brothers' homes. It is fun to walk along the road, the campground, the beach, the main street and back with some side tours and visiting along the way.

We ate well - very well! Sunday night we went on a pizza cruise  Pizza cruise: Order pizza from a place in town. Everyone ride on a pontoon boat to the town dock. Someone go get the pizza. Enjoy the pizza on the pontoon.  Then we took a ride around the lake. We saw eagles, loons, and an osprey. Ray got some great shots. 

It's always hard to leave. Shell Lake is definitely one of my childhood homes - I was there at least once every year of my life until I was in my 40s, I think. I've only missed a very few years in my almost 68 years.

Where are the pictures???? I really didn't take many - I was too busy having fun, I guess. I am mad at myself for not getting pictures of people though. We'll just have to go back!

The car is unpacked and much of that stuff is put away. The laundry pile is high. We've looked at most of the mail and bought a few groceries. Tomorrow things will get caught up.

We've traveled 6818 miles in the last 48 days and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. However, it is nice to be home!


  1. Welcome back home! As much fun as it is to travel, it's always nice to get back home, isn't it? For a while ... until it's time for another trip.

  2. I agree with Kathy. I love to travel, but I love to come home, too! I enjoyed following your travels.

  3. We got home on Monday night. Over 2400 miles, and I only took 2 pictures, and they are on my cell phone (hard to transfer for the non-techy gal).

  4. My goodness...A PIZZA CRUISE???? I must partake in one of these. I now have something new to add to my bucket list :)
