We had a good overnight at Island View, the Harvest Host fish resort, then left mid-morning. Our battery was getting a little low, and we wanted to rev it up.
We stopped at Ashland, Wisconsin for lunch at a Lake Superior beach park. Very nice. Then, on to Bayfield
We stayed at this RV park last year, when we visited the Apostle Islands. They have added a new section, tripling it in size. We could only get one night here so we did not unhook.
One of the nice things about this RV park is that it is within walking distance to a cool brewery/athletic gear shop. It is the kind of place where bikers and hikers come in, sweating and parched for a beer. Cool vibes.
Back at our campsite, George got a roaring fire going (sort of)…..It kept going out. He got it hot enough to grill our dinner.
DINNER: In an iron skillet (inside), I sauted onion, garlic, and scallions in butter. Then, I placed the iron skillet on the campfire to cook the shrimp. Meanwhile, I made some orzo to go on the side. I cooked some frozen spinach and topped it with leftover gorgonzola. That made a tasty combo!
BOOK: “Bridge of Scarlet Leaves” by Kristina McMorris. This is historical fiction, based on true accounts of Japanese-Americans families living in California during WWII. It is really heartbreaking to read about the shameful treatment of them by our government. Based on the mountain of tear-soaked Kleenex I used, I rate this a strong 5 star out of 5. One of the best books I’ve read in a while.
