Minocqua, WI day 4
Rain was predicted for the entire day but fortunately it cleared up so we went into Minocqua’s downtown, like a miniature Wisconsin Dells. We figured if it rained, we could take shelter in one of the many shops.
Our first stop was biking to the Minocqua Museum, a small museum of Minocqua’s history. Old furniture, appliances, classrooms, and the best was the functioning train. Apparently, I really love that kind of thing. Back in highschool, we had to bring in a prop for a book report and I created the setting of the book I read. I built the buildings, streets, little trees and people.
Afterwards, we went to a few shops, grabbed a coffee and eventually began our bar crawl. First stop, the Minocqua Brewing Company where we split the sampler. Afterwards, we went to the Thirsty Whale which is situated on the lake. We split some appetizers and got bloody mary’s which were served basic with a bucket of spices and sauces to cater to your taste. The bar probably thought this was a cool and unique thing to do but neither Audra nor I were capable of creating drinkable bloodys.
We biked back to our place and rested up, did some internet stuff, attempted to get my parents to come back from fishing to drive us to the “world’s largest penny”. It didn’t work so after a little while, we drove there to see it. Everything is much closer than it seems.
On the way back, we stopped at a side of the road shopping area where we grabbed ice cream.
We relaxed in the evening by drinking champagne and watching our favorite tv show which I refuse to mention because neither of us are proud.
The next day, we packed up and headed home. A short, fun and cold summer vacation.
