LOCATION: Stockholm, Wisconsin – along the Mississippi in east central part of state.
CAMPGROUND: Another Harvest Host site – Maiden Rock Winery/Cidery. It is a huge orchard out in the country. Very peaceful. 5 stars out of 5
WEATHER: Rain in the AM, clearing to become a very nice, fall day. High 65
DRIVE: 3 hours
We packed up from the AirB&B cabin. It is amazing how much “stuff” one has to lug back and forth. Alexis and Graham left at 9:45; we followed shortly thereafter at 10:00.
It was a beautiful drive, getting sunnier as the day went on. The leaves here are a bit different. The beautiful red sumac are in their full glory. We will be putzing along the Mississippi, following the Great River Road, for a few days at least. This is a view of Lake Pepin, part of the Mississippi, on the drive today…
We got settled in the winery/cidery. They were doing a surprisingly brisk business – wine/cider tasting and customers doing “pick your own” apples.
My brother and his wife came over from their home in Minneapolis to visit with us. We sat outside of Joy, our Airstream, for conversation and happy hour drinks and snacks. The weather cooperated and we were quite content sitting in the setting sunlight. BUT – I forgot to take a photo!!! Next time.
DINNER: Time to get back to leftovers. While with Alexis, a vegan, I did not cook any meat, so now we will start using up some of our leftover meat from the freezer. Tonight was BBQ ribs and a butternut squash.
