It was sunny and breezy here today, in the low 60’s. Well I spent money again today to look at rocks. I will say that this cruise was cheaper and I enjoyed it more. The one I took last week was $36, the one I took today was $21.
I took the Upper Dells Boat Tour on the Wisconsin River. It was a nice ride and you got off at two stops to walk scenic areas.
We saw a couple of bald eagles, one in flight and one on the beach. It was several yards away and I was on the wrong side of the boat so this photo is the best I could get even with my zoom lens.
Here are some photos from the first stop.
Here are some photos from the second stop. There was a long involved story about a famous photographer in 1888 that invented stop action photography and a photo that was taken of his son jumping from one rock to the other. Anyway, today they have a dog perform the jump.
After the cruise I walked up one side and down the other of the downtown area. There are three fudge shops within a three block area. T-shirt shops, restaurants, bars, etc. I am here at the end of the tourist season and many of the shops have already closed for the season or are only open on weekends. I also see a lot of painting and carpentry happening at businesses apparently to get everything ready for next spring.
Here are some photos I took while I drove around.
I had lunch at a place called “Hot Dog Avenue”…guess what they specialize in….Judy they were very creative with their trash cans…I think you could do this
And finally a photo at the end of the day
