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.
