Harper told us about another place we might be able to find some fish, and sure enough we did. We spent a whole day here enjoying the beach and the fishing. There was plenty of shallow sand for the kids to play in and plenty of fishing to keep us older folks occupied!
This was a beauty, and the picture doesn’t do it justice at all! They look so much smaller in pictures!
Maybe a close-up will help!
In this picture you can see Big Brother and The Hunter fishing, and if you look at the old pier pillars you will see Munchie and Mini-me playing.
Here is a nice one I caught!
We saw lots of wildlife also. This was a white crane fishing.
This strange-looking thing is a HUGE snapping turtle. He kept coming up and looking at us and was even maybe 10 feet away at one time. I don’t know if he was thinking the kids might make a tasty snack or if he was hoping to snag a fish we turned loose or what.
Bald eagles flew over head….
as well as a whole herd of pelicans!
This one was right over our heads!
There were also quite a few sail boats out on the bay.
Munchie loved this spot!
Here you can see where the old pier used to be. This was a logging community, so the logs were floated down here and then taken where they were needed.
We take a family photo every year to put on Christmas cards and we thought this location would be perfect. As I was getting the camera set up on the timer so I would have time to get in the picture here is what I was dealing with!
Big Brother is going to take a bite out of Mini-me!
We love Wisconsin!
