I am pretty sure I wouldn't feel the same about the Lake Michigan shoreline if it weren't also for the farms. It's what I love about my favorite side of Lake Winnebago, too. There are some similarities in what I love about large bodies of water and farmland -- the openness of the sky, the expanse of water/land, the waves, the interesting constructions (hello, outbuildings!) and specialized vehicles -- put them together and I'm feelin' a little bit of heaven. (I almost wrote "heavin'," but no, not that exactly.)
We drove up to Kewaunee. I'd never been there before and it was intriguing, so I took a right on one of the main streets and drove toward the water. We happened upon Hamachek Hall, part of Hamachek Village, all part of Kewaunee Renaissance. Hamachek Hall is huge.
On the lake side of Hamachek Hall is a most beautiful scene.
The little yellow house can be used for many things. It seems it's mostly used for weddings.
My first choice would be for one of the girls to get married in Greece, a la "Mamma Mia," complete with singing and dancing on the way in, "So Happy Together" on the way out. The singing and dancing happens no matter where the wedding takes place. I am still having daydreams about that old greenhouse in Stevens Point. The little yellow house at Hamachek Village in Kewaunee, Wisconsin, has been added to the list. It could definitely work (and be much LESS work than the greenhouse). Haha. Oh, the way my mind just takes off sometimes!
This is perfect, though, isn't it? Fling open those doors and let the light and the lake breeze in? Fill the place up with friends and family? Have a little party?
Our last stop on the way home was in Dyckesville at the Frosty Tip! The highway has been re-routed around town, now, and I'm sure that business has suffered, but there was a good bit of coming and going while we were there. I love how Katie's checkin' out the cute little Mercedes while bringing me my cone. It was a super yummy ice cream cone, too; I haven't had one in ages!
