Saturday July 18th 2009. Nugget Lake County Park, WI
What a busy day it was, I guess we just don’t know how to relax and sit back. Just to much to see and do.
We started the morning with a breakfast of , eggs, sausage, hash browns, toast and orange juice. We figured we would need the energy for the first part of the day.
After eating we started off on a hike, it was only going to be a mile and a half, but ended up being 4 miles or so. The park has many hiking trails with wildflowers in abundance.
Prairie Lilly Spotted Knapweed
False Sunflower Hedge Bindweed, I know it as the Morning Glory
Robin’s Plantain Cup Plant
Yellow Wood Sorrel
Rich, Louie and Mike on the Trail. There is always a hill to climb. Marion working her way up the steps.
The trail follows Plum Creek in many places.
After our two hour hike we all went to the small river village of Stockholm WI. Population 92. Although today the population swelled to a couple of thousand. They were having an art fair along Lake Pepin. Stockholm is a quaint Swedish village along the Mississippi river with lots of natural beauty.
The four of us had a little lunch at one of the outdoor cafes. The town is know for it’s small shops and gardens. They had the most lovely gardens thru out the town.
We had grilled shrimp and a pasta that Marion made for dinner, it was so good. Mike and I were in bed by 9:30 and sleeping by 9:35, very busy fun day.
