Apostle Islands, Wisconsin Trip

Dick and I spent a couple of days in Northern Wisconsin this week with the Goodrums. We spent our time at the Apostle Islands in the town of Bayfield, WI.

We rented a condo on the south shore of Lake Superior.

Being the time was in late October, most of the boats had been taken out of the water in preparation for the coming winter. Dick is taking pictures of the area.

Here is a view of the town of Bayfield. The color of the foliage was wonderful. Away from the lake, the leaves had all fallen from the trees.

There are several apple orchards around Bayfield. Dorie and I pose for a picture at the entrance of one of the orchards.

I've been a member of faculty wives for many years now. One of our activities is gourmet groups. The following pictures show a recent Halloween Party of our group.

Here is a picture of me standing by one of the decorations.

This is Lorna, the host for our Halloween Party.

Fall Colors

This past week the foliage was so pretty. So I took a few pictures of some of the trees and shrubs. Here is the fire bush at the end of my driveway.

I went to the hospital to visit a friend. As I was parking my car I noticed how nice the maple trees looked. Here is the picture of it.

An Exciting Week

A group called the Piano Trio (piano, violin, cello) was touring Minnesota and so Don & Judy made arrangements to have them play a concert in their home. About 60 people were there. Here is Don & Judy with the cellist, the violinist sporting a beard, and the pianist sitting.

We also meet from time-to-time with a group of friends. We have dinner at one of the homes and them play a board game or watch a movie. Here are three of my friends Pat, Mary, and Dorie that we meet with along with the husbands.

Here are some of us sitting around the table after playing a couple rounds of a board game. Dick of course, along with Dorie and I, won both games.

This is a picture of Dick and Jim that I took the previous week, but I wanted to include it. This was when we were up at their summer home near the Canadian border. By the way, Jim won every game of cribbage!
