George tried fishing again at the National Forest Service park where we stayed last night. Still no luck. The water is so clear that he can see the fish. He says it is very frustrating!
On to Bayfield! As we got closer to our destination, the route became even prettier ….(We were on a Scenic Byway). We passed cranberry bogs, lots of pine trees, and fields. In one little town, we stopped for a picnic lunch, with views of Lake Superior. We filled up our beer growler from this faucet with springs water.
Our RV park welcomed us…
We will be here 4 nights. We hope to go to Madelaine Island for a day trip, and explore the northern shore.
We went in to the cute town of Bayfield. Lots of tourists. All of the hotels and inns have “no vacancy” signs. Shops seem to be doing well. We went to the ferry terminal to figure out tomorrow’s plans, and to the cruise company to see about a cruise around the islands another day. The marina is very pretty…
We found a waterfront bar/restaurant and had a drink while watching the boats come in and go out. Just lovely!
Back to the campground. Guess what is about 1/4 mile from our park? A brewery! It is actually a brewery/bicycle shop/sporting wear shop/and outdoor gear store – everything one could want, all in one place!
It has this big animal statue in its field. The place is called Howl.
It proclaims to be the northern-most brewery in Wisconsin
We walked back to the RV and got ready for dinner.
DINNER: Tacos with soy chorizo, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, and corn salsa. George had cooked the chorizo previously over the campfire, so tonight I just had to warm it up and add the veg.
