My grandparents are here from Ohio!! I'm so glad family has finally been able to visit me since I've moved away from home. They arrived Sunday evening and will be here until tomorrow morning. Yesterday was a great day, the weather was perfect (76 and sunny! huzzah!) and it was a blast being able to show them around our little peninsula. We drove all the way up north and took the ferry over to Washington Island and checked out the Coast Guard station and ate ice cream before heading back down and grabbing a late lunch at this adorable Swedish restaurant.
Driving on to the ferry! I was nervous I would be sick (horrible motion-sickness here....) but I was fine. On the ride to the island we stayed in the car, not realizing we could get out when it was moving. But on the way back we got out and went up top and it was so relaxing. The ride takes about 20 minutes and it was so nice being able to breath in the fresh lake air.
I couldn't believe how beautiful the water was. It was so clear and sparkly! You could see right to the bottom. This picture doesn't do it justice!
The Washington Island Coast Guard station. Mike doesn't work here full time, only when they need him. Normally he is just down in Sturgeon Bay.
Aren't these painted rocks adorable?
This picture just made me giggle. No trespassing as Mike is screwing up the combination and shaking the door furiously to get it open. :)
I didn't want to swamp ya'll with a ton of pictures so I'll be posting them over a few days. Tomorrow I'll show you the cute little Swedish restaurant. They had some adorable decorations that I had a blast taking pictures of! Today the family and I are going down to Green Bay so they can see Lambeau Field. Hope you are all having a great week!
