9/15 - 9/18 we took our annual trip to the Chequamegon Fat Tire Fest. Only this time we went up a day early to do some touristing. We stopped at an old fire tower that had been converted into a Bayfield county museum.
And stopped at a park where everyone climbed trees. Even Grandma.
The highlight of that first evening, though, was a boat tour of the sea caves near the Apostle Islands. These are the same caves that freeze over most winters.
We saw some bald eagles. Including a couple of juveniles that didn't yet have their white feathers.
Moonrise was cool.
We had planned to hike up to Morgan falls and St Peter's Dome. But this dirt road? Washed out in the summer flooding. Up a bit from this beautiful scene the road gets awful. I'm sure there are vehicles that could get through to the hiking trail ... but not our minivan.
Of course Becky took the chance to walk around and shoot some fabulous pictures.
The bike race happened!

Winner! At least of the three in our party
Evidence that Mike finally beat his Dad.
Once again we stopped at Copper Falls on the way home.
Just this past Saturday, Santi played in a soccer tournament. We crushed Fond du Lac 8-0 on Friday night, then lost 3-1 to Pius. This is the Pius game.
