Up North

This morning we left very early and drove up just past Minocqua, WI to Crystal Lake.  I actually dropped Justin off at TimberRidge Golf Course in Minocqua, where he met his dad and they played a round.  I drove the rest of the way to Crystal Lake, and met up with Justin's mom, Sarah.  They have been camping there for the week.  We spent a very nice morning riding bikes, reading on the beach, talking, and walking along some of the trails.  The day was mostly sunny, but very breezy at times.  They had a great campsite location, right off the beach, and the breezes kept all the bugs away.  John and Justin's round took much longer than expected - very busy - and we didn't end up eating lunch/ dinner until after 3:30.  But it was very tasty.  There was a slight mishap with the tripod spilling the brats, but as the guys hadn't shown up yet, we just rinsed them off and put them back on the grate! :)  We put shrimp kabobs on the heat just as they pulled in, and lunch commenced without any more plunging proteins! :)  Afterwards, we cleaned up the dishes and such, and then headed into Minocqua for ice cream before heading home.  A very nice day.
