Wisconsin Update

Yesterday we drove and drove and drove...and drove.....and drove....until we reached the beautiful little town of Tomahawk, WI.  We happened upon a rustic lodge, where we were able to acquire a cozy room for only $72.  Our room looked out upon the sprawling lake that the town was built around.  It was really neat!

We woke up early-ish this morning and headed west for about 45 minutes and then north for the same and finally came to our destination: Mellen, WI.  There we picked up Joshua's dear little puppy, Lettie, and visited with her family, the Beirls, for a little while.

Unlike hot, humid Georgia, Wisconsin is pretty dang chilly!  I would guess the temperature is about 55F right now, and with the wind and the rain it feels quite wintery up here.  I am loving it.  September is one of my least-favorite months because in Georgia it seems to go miserably, humidly, on for-EVER.  Here it actually feels like fall!  Sigh.

We decided to drive north about 15 miles more to Ashland to see Lake Superior.  That's where I am right now--sitting at a charming little coffee shop in Ashland sipping a tasty soy latte and uploading pictures from our trip! :D

And here they are--enjoy! :D

Lettie is so beautiful! I love her colour. Her dame is lovely as well -- I can only imagine that Lettie will grow into a gorgeous dog. :) Enjoy the rest of your trip! Take care!
