What am I forgetting?

May 28th, 2021

It’s amazing what 14 months in COVID isolation, going nowhere, but working, working, working, can do to a brain…

This is your brain on vacation… no, wait, this is MY brain on vacation:

Or this?

It’s the rhubarb sauce… and no eggs, the fridge froze everything, and, well, over-easy frozen just isn’t doable, whereas french toast is.

Yeah, a week of loafing… do do do, lookin’ out my back … window:

Site 22e at Potawatomi State Park, it’s the best site in the park, and yeah, hard to get, shoulder seasons are most likely:

Rain expected, so didn’t set up stove until morning

Lots of asparagus, for breakfast and dinner, those went too fast to even get photos!

… and the weather was perfect, raining at night, gentle little drops but lots of it, and cool but just right. Though it was SO windy up on top of the Door County Maritime Museum lookout in Sturgeon Bay:

And look, it’s Aunt Mimi welding!

Yes, there’s a shout out to women shipbuilders:

It was mostly sunny in the day, so we were checking out other parks, like Peninsula State Park. Good luck getting reservations, Weborg Campground is impossible, it’s more intense than other parks, but overall, reservations just aren’t available! Will try for 104 or 105 sometime in my lifetime!!!

Picnics. We saved a lot by not going to restaurants… sigh… though there looked to be some good ones here. On the other hand, saved enough to tow the too-low mpg trailer! Picnic areas were open at Peninsula park:

Also just opened last week, and the SMELL, oh my, newly constructed Eagle Tower, scary high, but accessible with the longest biggest ramp ever:

And from the top:

And a cruise around Shore Drive:

And a little bit of work, with this view out the office window:

And off to Washington Island, isolated community, and it reminds me of Florence Township just south of us in Red Wing:

Sadie was a little weirded out, cruising along BACKWARD on the way over! Dogs behind us were really freaked, barking all the way.

First stop, Camp Jacobsen — unfortunately, Alan had on his Jacobsen’s shirt the day before:

Had a very chilly picnic at Whitefish Dunes State Park, water was almost surfable:

It was odd, Sadie, who is terrified of rainstorms, was absolutely fascinated by the waves, jumping up and down happily excited!!!

It was so cold, the park was pretty much deserted. Trilliums everywhere, and here, they weren’t as rain damaged as at Potawatomi:
