Tough getting up this morning after the Cosmic Bingo fiasco at Mystic Lake Casino and getting to sleep at 1:30 am yesterday (actually today). Supposed to be mid 80s in Hager City today so we needed to sacrifice sleep for an early finish. No rest for the weary!. I looked to Siri for a good bike route from our RV park to Hager City and she did not disappoint. Starting in an urban area and moving into the country, I was on bike paths for a significant portion of the ride. When on the highway shoulders were smooth and wide. When I got out of town, the scenery was beautiful...again. It was a very good day to be on the bike. Being a natural optimist, when I thought about the cross country ride I always envisioned most days being like today. The reality, of course, has been much different, but I now learn to appreciate days like today.
We entered another state when we visited Prescott Wisconsin. In addition, we crossed over the
We decided on Point St Croix Marina restaurant that overlooks a marina on the Mississippi. I was a fantastic location. They had more drink choices than food to give you an idea of the place and we were told they specialize in shrimp. We weren't hungry and it was too early for a beer (I rarely say that) so we decided on a couple shrimp to try and the "pizza fries" since I'd never heard of them before. Turns out they're just cheese bread with marinara dipping sauce. I tell you what we ordered so you have a better understanding when you see the bill that arrived when I asked to pay (cash only by the way). I never get tired of experiencing these small town establishments.
