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
