Welcome To My Blog

Weekends are for wandering Wisconsin. That's what Rick, my guy, and I do. Occasionally we wander during the week, too. Sometimes we just drop in on other people's lives.

This blog is my way of sharing where we've been, neat places and things to do that we've found.

Rainy Days

As much as we would like the sun to shine every day that we wander, that just doesn’t happen. So, on those rainy days, we check out museums. Having gained a deeper appreciation for Wisconsin’s history over the last several years, I've managed to get Rick to historical museums in many of Wisconsin’s communities.

Last week we were at the Indian Agency House in Portage. Our tour guide was a very engaging college student who gained her love for history from her parents.

I couldn't resist posting this image – a section of a large advertising banner that came from the back of a theater stage. It’s at the Malone Area Heritage Museum in Wisconsin’s Holy Land. We’ve been at the modern-day Calumet Brewing Company in Chilton – good beer, good food, and a fun atmosphere.

The Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee is terrific. You can even design your own motorcycle.

If you want to check out more that moves, ride the electric train from Mukwonago to East Troy. Here’s a decorative element from one of the train cars.
A little rain won't dampen the spirits of us who love to wander Wisconsin!
